Re: Crabitat 2.0 (from a 20 gal to a 50 gal)

Still waiting on them to discover and try out the hamster wheel. How long did it take for your crabs to discover it for the first time? A couple have discovered the teeter totter.

Re: Almond Butter Covered Crab

well, I never really measure the sea salt I use, but I really don't know how much to put in it. I have a flukers corner bowel small for my crabs. How much would you recommend putting in it? When you say 'sea salt' do you mean sea salt for cooking? Only marine sea salt should be used with hermit cra...

Re: I guess its offical... an upgrade?

I got my egg crate at Lowes. It is also called light diffusers too. It was back in the ceiling tile section. a 24" X 48" piece was around $16.

Re: I guess its offical... an upgrade?

What kind of mesh did you make your freshwater ramp out of? I went to the hardware store to try to find something like that for my pools and couldn't find anything even remotely suitable.

Re: News Article. Hermit Crabs Attracted to Dead Hermits

Yeah i saw that article. Makes perfect sense when you think about it. Not to mention, easy meal ;) Honestly I've been thinking about bringing some sterilized shells with me the next time I go somewhere tropical and donating them to the local hermit crabs.
