Re: Chia Seeds?

Has anyone tried flax? And if so what brand? I gave mine flaxseed meal from sprouts a couple nights ago and found it smeared all around the food dish so I know Olve liked it lol. I have whole seeds as well but I've been selfish and keeping them to myself hehe. I haven't been thinking of sprouting t...

Re: Good Mites or Bad Mites?

EEE!! This is the best!! Now I'm starting to wonder if I should check to see if my crab dug down or not, I can't find one of them and there's a weird mound where a hole was... should I dig and look for him? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk You should never do that. It's best to leave them be. It ...

Re: First Successful Molt!

Me too Raw! It's such a surprise. I'm glad because murexes are beautiful shells. Not that turbos aren't! (;

Re: First Successful Molt!

Omg guys I'm so excited! I just checked right now what needs to be cleaned before I give fresh food for tonight and I found Yippe's old Shell! She's hiding in the cave at the moment so I won't disturb her but she changed to a rather large green turbo! Maybe she did molt after all. She looks huge in ...

Re: First Successful Molt!

Thanks guys! I wish I could get a better pic of his colors but they're both still very shy. Olve is super bright red like a strawberry and his BP got HUGE and super dark purple. So beautiful! Crabinski that's exactly what I was thinking! Must be a quirk of his personality lol. I'm glad I bought more...

First Successful Molt!

I got my two little ones on October 20th by the 29th Olve dug down. Just two nights ago I came home to find Olve's old murex shell sitting empty next to the saltwater dish and all the new shells tossed around. Then last night I found him demolishing a food dish and poop and food smeared all over the...

Re: What do you feed when everyone is molting?

Hmm okay! [emoji56]I'll keep the dried shrimp and cuttlebone available at all times. I heard calcium and protein are the most important nutrients for them to get right after a molt but of course a balanced diet is best

What do you feed when everyone is molting?

Hey guys! Both of my crabs are down for their first ever molt, which is very exciting, but I have a quick question... Should I feed while they are down? The first one, Yippe, went down on October 22nd just two days after I got her. Olve went down exactly a week later on the 29th so I don't expect ei...

Dirty Choya Wood

I've been doing a ton of renovations and upgrades in my tat recently since both of my babies are down molting (for the first time *fingers crossed* :D). This includes fixing the moss pit which collapsed, getting tons of new bigger shells, cleaning out all the uneaten chia, and soaking the choya wood...
