Re: Just a few cute hermie shots

Not sure what size tank you have but depending on the size you will want a block or more of Eco Earth coconut fiber (online or pet store) and play sand (at any hardware store) mixed together. Wet with dechlorinated water (any dechlorinating water conditioner in fish supplies). You should be able to ...

Re: Naked buried crab

Yes, don't rebury! If the crabs are hard and moving then they should be fine to bring to the surface only if something goes wrong. I didn't know you had more than the two when I told you that you should gently go after the naked crabs. You were very lucky that you didn't dig up a fresh molter which ...

Re: Naked buried crab

Oh dear, I'm a little confused! So was Calico coming up from a molt with or without his shell and how did Pegleg endup naked? Either way if you know that neither are down molting, I would ever so gently retrieve the naked crab or crabs and place them with their shell in a small plastic container wit...

Re: Moving my tank while moving

The reason you should never move a tank with molting crabs is because the tunnel and cave they are in can collapse on them. If you are positive he didn't die and that he molted and that is his exoskeleton you see, then cut a plastic drink bottle in half. Use one that is smaller than a 2 liter but la...

Re: Tank Temperature

I've been keeping crabs for a few years now and have a 60 gallon tank plus a 30 gallon Iso. Living in Texas, the temperature is so unpredictable so I bought reptile heating pads from ebay that have temp control knobs and have them stuck on the outside back wall of the tanks. I wouldn't use anything ...

Re: Hermit crab sitting in same position for days??

I too have ordered from ebay. I order from "crabtreatmania" who looks to be a little short on food at the moment but when he has it...he has a bunch. You'll have to keep checking back with him. All organic This seller has a lot of meat in his foods. Plus Venison! My crabs love his food! In each cho...

Yeah I get excited when he goes down to molt too but I miss him so much because it takes him forever to molt. He comes up so much bigger, darker and beautiful though.

Re: New adopted crabbies!

I have that problem too! I get everything in the tank, then I remember I still need room for the food dishes! They get 2 pea pod dishes ( 10 foods) a calcium dish and a treat dish! Plus 2 waters! So I end up moving all the stuff in the tank again! Lol! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk Here are s...

Ok, I wasn't certain if he was or not because he doesn't have a distinct purple purple pincher. Thank you, now I know :) I did look up ruggies and I don't see any photos of them being this dark and the antennae are dark as well.

Re: Sweetest little face

Is he a ruggie? I want to say I believe so by some of the details but I've only been keeping crabs for two years and not real familiar with all of the species. He could be just a huge dark PP. Can anyone for sure identify him? I can identify the Ecuadorian, PP's as long as they have an actual purpl...
