Re: PPs changing color?

PPS change colors all the time. After a molt, mine are always different colors. More red, purple, brown, pink, orange. I've seen them all change as they grow. It's exciting!

Re: Molting or....?

He will come up when he's ready. It generally takes larger crabs longer to molt. I've had some down for 3-4 months at a time. Be patient, don't dig!

Re: Tank Upgrade, Temp not high enough. Suggestions?

Maybe bump up the temp on your regulator. I've had to do that this winter.

Re: All crabs down

Yes, they are all ungrateful, but we love them unconditionally. That's what makes us the best crabby parents! Oh, and they teach us patience beyond what we think we can handle! Lol!

Re: Introducing new hermit crabs to a 40 gallon crabitat

Yes, I agree with her. Some dip in salt water. Just to make the crabs all smell the same. It may reduce bullying. No scientific proof to back this, just personal experience.

Re: Large shell... small crab.

Every individual crab has his/own preference when it comes to shells. As long as they have a variety to choose from, they will be ok.

If he doesn't like it, he will find new pants!

Re: Is it possible for a hermit crab to die in its shell and not fall out when picked up?

Yes, I had a crab die and stay wedged in his shell. It took a week for him to start smelling.

Re: What is everyone's nightly/weekly routine?

Daily routine..look for crabs. Look at foods and waters. Change when needed. All 4 tanks are different. Big/jumbo in the 55. Mediums in the 30, babies in the 29 and Es in the 20 tall. Check heat and humidity.
Calciums/proteins always plentiful!

Re: Humidity Issues

Be careful with misting, you don't to flood your tank or get a bacterial bloom.

Re: Humidity Issues

I have a humidifier running in the room that my tanks are in. My heat is very dry too. Do you have moss on your tank? That helps with humidity too. If you wet it, but not to where it's dripping, and put it by the tank heater, that will help some.

Re: Dried Seaweed

We got purple seaweed at Petco in the fish area. Looks like Nori, but it's purple. They like the red too.
