Re: Has anyone else had issues ordering from Hermie's Kitchen?

Their Etsy FAQ clearly states that some items take longer to process than others due to production variables and that shipping can take from 1-2 weeks or up to 12 business days during holiday times, and that shipping estimates cannot be guaranteed. With over 15,000 sales in the last few years, most...

Re: Has anyone else had issues ordering from Hermie's Kitchen?

The owner is a friend and I will reach out to them. She had a flood in her home recently that caused some orders to be delayed and when she let people know they got upset. I believe HK was also on vacation but I could be wrong. HK is a great, independently run and operated business and the owner do...

Has anyone else had issues ordering from Hermie's Kitchen?

I've heard great things about Hermie's Kitchen, but I still haven't received the order I placed over a month ago, and the store owner has been very difficult to reach. I'm wondering if I should be worried as this is my first time ordering from them. To be fair, I accidentally sent my delivery to the...

Re: Molting crab exposed in tunnel. ISO?

Update: It was an empty shell that didn’t belong to Hermcules! By sheer coincidence, I woke up this morning to find Herm up and about (His little crab ears must’ve been ringing because I’ve been talking about him!). I checked the hole and the shell was still there, so I knew it was the spare that lo...

Molting crab exposed in tunnel. ISO?

Hermcules has been molting for about a month. Maybe a week ago, on the surface of the substrate I noticed a new hole ~1-2" deep where I could see the top of his shell. I checked the tank camera and he hasn't resurfaced, so I think one of my other crabs dug down and found him. I covered the opening t...

[Video] Shell change fail

Caught Snooki being super graceful changing shells and I cannot stop laughing. Thought you guys would enjoy the video of her wardrobe malfunction :lol: : https://www.instagram.com/p/BtTeNLGDhxX/ Don't worry, she scooted into another shell just outside the camera's view, so she didn't stay naked for ...

Can substrate be too cold?

My apartment has been especially frigid these last few days, so I got a 3rd UTH for my 20gal tank. Thankfully, that put the temperature back into the 70s, but I have no idea what temp the substrate is. When I put my hand on the outside of the tank down by the substrate, it feels pretty cold. I know ...

Re: Lots and LOTS of calcium!

Did they end up going under? Also, not sure if you have any cuttle bones in your tank, but they're super cheap and a great source of calcium! Mine has lasted 4 months and I'm just replacing it now. Granted, I went from 2 crabs to 4 with alternate molts, so not all were nibbling it at once, but they ...

Molting again so soon?

Sandy, my small crab, molted from 7/11-8/15. After she resurfaced, she had a favorite hiding spot where I could see her shell, and she'd come out a lot at night. However, in the last ~10 days, I haven't seen her at all. She just came back from a molt, so I can't imagine she'd molt again this soon. S...

Re: Pinterest idea that actually worked!

It's pretty cool, glad you found something you liked! :) Do you have craft mesh or something for them to climb up into it more easily? Your tank looks great! Thanks for the tip! I'm planning to get some mesh to hang on one side of the tank for them to climb up. I should definitely get some leading ...

Pale PP post-molt

Sandy resurfaced from a molt on August 16th and is looking rather pale. I had only had her for a couple of days before she burrowed, so I don't remember if she was this pale when I bought her or if her color changed after molting. Is this normal?: https://i.imgur.com/mT4RFLs.jpg I've been feeding he...

Pinterest idea that actually worked!

I don't know about you guys, but most of the projects I've found on Pinterest have failed miserably when I attempted to do them. I'm happy to report that this one worked out great! Basically, I made a saltwater pool out of a glass fishbowl/globe. Here's the photo from Pinterest: https://i.pinimg.com...

My first successful molt! Now what?

After just over a month of molting, Sandy finally surfaced! :clap: I caught her last night in a new shell having a midnight snack. She was MIA this morning, but I think she's prone to digging just for fun because, when I first got her shortly before she started molting, she'd disappear for a day or ...
