Crabs are just weird. And who knows what all they have stored in their shell. Might not have to move for a month. LOL

Re: What are your crabs up to?

The other day this crab was walking back and forth on top of the cameras and thermometer, back to the shelf. Just over and over again. The next day I looked in the camera holders and there was poop! How rude! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200908/12bdc5067fda9b785c9776ef00a020c3.jpg Sent from my...

Kinda weird

One of my crabs has been sitting on the shelf in the corner for over a week. Doesn't seem to move. The other day I finally took him out to see if he was alive and he was. I decided to place him in the moss pit on the other side of the tank. If he was hungry he could nibble on the moss. A very short ...

Re: Not switching?

Hey y’all I’m fairly A fairly new Hermit crab owner so I thought I should ask some more experienced people this question. So today I had to do a quick cleaning in my crabs tank, since they’ve taken to stealing food away from their dishes, and when picking up one of them I noticed his shell is way t...

GB, she said it's 55gal. I would think that's small for 21 crabs unless they are tiny.

Re: Scared crab

Update: A few days ago he came out and climbed up the wall and sat there for about 5 minutes and went back down. Today he came out, changed his shell and ate a bunch of food and then went back down. A couple days ago I made a powdered blend of egg shells, freeze dried shrimp and mealworms, and drie...

Re: New crabber in the Flint, MI area

Welcome! Go ahead and remove the painted shells. You don't want them going back into them. Bulbs tend to zap humidity. You really want to cover the entire back of the tank, from top of substrate, with a heater. A good brand is Ultratherm which can also be insulated if you have to. The analog therm/h...

Re: Baby food for hermit crabs

Naturals only means no added persavitives, colors. But it's not organic. I buy the pouch organic baby food. Whatever is on sale. Different flavors. I also get the crunchy snacks. They look like cheerios. For the pouch I just put a very small bit in their dish. Depends how many crabs you have and how...

They like midnight snacks. As long as there are molters you can't search.

Re: Moulting

You're humidity needs to be higher. Minimum 75%, better 80 and up. What kind of lid do you have? They have modified gills and need humidity to breathe.
