Re: New crab owner - where are they???

The pellets are bad. Don't give them to the crabs. Yes, it's very common for crabs to go down for months. Don't dig, just be patient. Watch the heat and humidity! The crabs will come up and go back down frequently! Don't worry! They may just need time to destress or molt. Can you post pics of your c...

Re: Very New Crabber

Check out the safe/unsafe foods list on this site. I know mine love honey! They like fresh fruit too. Do you monitor the heat and humidity? They are very important.

Re: Color of my crabs changed a lot

My younger crabs have come up lighter and my older crabs come up darker. I've read it could be age. I've had a brown E come up bright orange.

Re: Sound underneath substrate

I always try to figure out where they are! I've been hearing a lot of digging going on! I wonder what they are doing, but at least I know they are alive! They will resurface whenever they want.

Re: Hole in my hermit crab
