Re: Not sure if it’s an emergency or normal?! Newbie here

What ever you do... DO NOT DIG THEM UP!! Only if you have a flood or bacterial bloom. The others are right, they are probably molting. Just be patient 😉

Re: Loves the Hygrometer?

Thanks! What an awesome thing you did there! Those jumbos- wow. I assumed that was the case when you said the living situation had changed for them- bc nobody gets them to that large size and has them for that long without truly caring for them in both senses. Sad she had to let them go I’m sure! W...

Re: Burlap

If you are talking about using it as a way for the crabs to get out of the pool, I wouldn't. I would be afraid it would wick the water out and into the sub. Hopefully someone that has tried it will chime in here soon.

Re: ISO

First off, I am no expert!! But I had a flood and had to dig two crabbies up. I put them in ISO until they were up moving around. As soon as they were up I gave them a dip in the pool and put them back in the main tank.

Re: Shellfish Allergy

I was at the hospital and had a reaction to IVdye, my throat closed up and I broke out all over. I was told that ment I was allergic to shellfish as well... But I would definitely check first if I were you, just to be safe.

Re: Shellfish Allergy

The doctor told me I'm allergic to shell fish and I haven't had a problem with my crabs or their food 👍 that is just me though.

Re: Salt Water

You will need a product for marine fish like Instant Ocean to replicate the sea and just follow directions on the box for mixing.

Re: New Used Tanks--how OCD to be? (and tank topper q)

I've had really good luck cleaning fish gunk out using baking soda and water made into a thick paste. Scrub with paper towels and rinse really well.
Can I ask why you would downsize from a 90g to a 30g??
And, have you thought of using the 30g as a topper for the 90g??

Re: Having to move a a large mid-molting crab to an ISO tank. I feel guilty

I have my molter in a 20 gal tall right now too, they dont need a ton of room while molting. He will probably just dig down, eat his exo, an stay in one spot until he is hard enough to get out and about again.

Re: Having to move a a large mid-molting crab to an ISO tank. I feel guilty

I would leave him in the iso bowl with his exo and sit the bowl down in your main tank. It is important to let him eat his exo!! Let him finish molting before putting back with the other crabs. I just had a big flood in my tank and I also have a molting crab in a bowl.
