Re: Yes, good news for once!

Hooray! My guys have been under for a couple months, and I'll be returning home Sunday with new shells for my big guys, including him. Hopefully they'll all be up when I return so I can tell which crab I'm missing.
(I apologize if the last bit was sad.)

Re: Waiting for Friends to come back from molt

It depends on how large your tank is to tell if you can add another crab in or not. My guys are often times alone for a period of time while the others are down, and they're usually fine.

Re: Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

Cute crabby! As for the shells, boil them and soak/dip them in salt water before adding them to your tank. Personally, I don't trust what people say, but there is still the shipping and dust, among whatever else the shells may have collected before you bought them. I take no chances when it comes t...

Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

I am currently vacationing and I picked up some turbos and a cute little hermit crab figurine. The shop claims there are no harsh chemicals used in the process of polishing them. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190319/2a62219ba12108ca8bc8d9b2a75bbeee.jpg 5 PPs: Koa, Moja, Siam, Chella, and Ozark

I'd say it's some kind of insulation or heat pad. I have heat insulation tape around the sides of my tank

Re: First Time buying new

Naples, Florida Shells and Gifts, and Nautical Crush Trading have shells in bulk. I've also gotten some from craft stores and I got my gold mouth turbos from a vacation we took the past summer. We went to a cave and in the gift shop were gold mouth turbos and delphinium shells that my baby crab, Sia...

Re: Harry changed shells again!

When I got Harry he was in a tiny shell. Soon later he changed into a shell twice the size of his original one. He has changed a billion times since then but then he settled on his favorite green turbo. Since Hagrid sadly died two weeks ago I put in his old shell today. Harry changed into it half a...

Re: Green turbo

I just recieved some green turbo shells for my 2 little guys (that are molting right now). I was just wondering if anybody else has green turbo shells and if their crabs like them or not. Both my little fellas are buried right now so I haven't had the chance to see them fiddle with the shells yet. ...

Re: Freshly Molted Crab Dug Out

An Update: Chella is back up, so it's Chella, Ozark, and Siam up. This means the crab that died was one of my very first two, Koa or Moja.

Re: Freshly Molted Crab Dug Out

I am so sorry for your loss. [emoji22] I’m not 100% sure about this but I wouldn’t leave him in there just incase it gives them “a taste” of eating other hermit crabs. I really don’t know the correct answer for that and I do understand that they probably do that in the wild but being that they are ...
