Re: Stuck in shell?

Is he in a painted shell? Sometimes, people force crabs into painted shells without even waiting for the paint to dry and then they get stuck as the paint slowly poisons them. They also start to have trouble molting properly as they can’t get into bigger shells as they grow. The only safe way (I’ve ...

Re: Digging up crab?

Ok, thank you for the advice! This time we’ll start using isopods too, then. Unfortunately, we’ll just deep clean one more time because the substrate has gotten dirty without the isopods and with us experimenting with leaving food outside the bowl to stimulate the hermies.

Re: Digging up crab?

Yeah, he’s a medium or large crab, so I don’t think he would need many molts, he hasn’t been showing other molt signs, no exo either

Digging up crab?

So, one of my crabs, the biggest one, is super stressed all the time because of some mistakes we’ve made back when we were beginners. We’re trying to let him calm down and stuff, but one of his main stress relief strategies is digging, so he’s always buried. Now, it’s time to change the substrate an...

Website for scorpion care?

Ok so basically, my brother had been begging for a scorpion for years, and my grandma saw one while shopping for my uncle who as a bazillion pets. The adults of the house talked it over and we got the scorpion. Everything’s been fine and the research/prep phase went well, there have been no problems...

Molter under bowl??

Hi. So one day, my crab went missing but there were absolutely no signs he escaped, so me andmy sister thought he may be molting, especially since there was a space where a crab clearly burrowed down into next to a water bowl that didn’t match those left behind by the non-missing crab, who loves to ...

Mosquito in Crabitat

So, as you can probably tell from the topic title, there’s a mosquito in our crabitat. I’m afraid to open the crabitat to kill the mosquito in case it escapes because my dad said we can’t kill it fast enough and it would just fly out, and I’m hesitant to change the water for the same reason. Is the ...

Re: Escaped Hermit Info. Gathered from other Posts.

One time, I could not find my hermie anywhere in the two rooms closest, and didn’t think he would’ve made it all the way out to the third room after just one night, but we got desperate and what do you know, he was under a box there.
