Re: Underground

They are both still underground. Definitely haven't passed away as there is no overly fishy smell. Its been awhile though, so my 4 y/o is starting to get impatient. He keeps asking me to get him another hermit crab... now I am seriously thinking about getting a 20g tank for Christmas as an upgrade s...

Underground

Both of our boys are underground now, went down about a week apart. Now I'm curious... do I keep changing food and water every day? Never had a tank with everyone molting at the same time before.

10g Hermit Crabitat Tour Video

My 4 year old was playing with modeling clay while I was making this video. He kept asking really great questions, so I left the conversation in the video and went with it instead of redoing the video.

Re: I cleaned up!

It looks great! I need to fidget with mine a bit to open up floor space as well, but my tank is much smaller than yours so it's a wee bit hard to do!

How did they even fit?

When my husband brought Baby Camouflage and Big Camouflage (Our 4 year old named them... Every Betta we have owned has been Charlie. Or, as he likes to say, that's Charlie's brother, his name is Charlie...) home 2 weeks ago, they were in the painted shells on the left. Now, they have moved into shel...

Re: Hi everyone, been a while

Glad to hear they are both alive. Crossing my fingers they regain their strength!

Just grabbing a quick bite...

Someone decided to sneak out real quick around lunch time to grab a quick bite... I'm not used to seeing the boys out during daylight hours.

To mix, or not to mix?

To mix, or not to mix? That is the question—Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of separated substrate, Or to take arms against a sea of hermit crabs, And, by mixing, end them? Currently my tank's substrate is separated, sand on one side and coconut fiber on the other. We...

Does this shell look too big?

http://i67.tinypic.com/2nscj29.jpg I know it's not the best pic, sorry. I am trying to figure out what size shells I should be getting. This guy has been swapping shells every single night, and they have been all different sizes. 5/8", 6/8", 7/8", 1". I have one of every size in the tank right now ...

Re: Should My Crabitat Smell When I Open the Top?

I have a lot of crab food that the person who owned them before me gave to us, I usually give them a little bit of that along with fresh fruit and vegetables. I suppose it could be that since I think it's shrimp or krill or something along those lines. It's not a terribly potent smell, and it does s...

Should My Crabitat Smell When I Open the Top?

When I pull back the plastic wrap I notice that the crabitat is kinda stinky. Both of the boys are alive and neither is molting. It's not a terribly strong smell, but it does smell. I just want to make sure that this is okay? The Crabitat has only been set up for 9 days...

Re: Hand Picked New Shells Today

I need to get more shells. One of the boys is very unhappy. Last night he switched from the new banded brown turbo into his old green turbo, back to the brown banded, back to the old green, all in under an hour. I feel bad that he is appatently not happy with any of his current choices, but I suppos...
