Re: Rose/flower advice please

This is what I was afraid of... I am aware of some using "tricky words" to describe a product. That's one of the reasons all of this is so confusing, or atleast to me it is. So should I just look for organic items and check the safe list..? I apologize for so many questions, I just want to make sure...

Re: Rose/flower advice please

I'm still stumped though. I know that just because something is "natural" does not mean it's safe. But if something is natural, organic, and on the safe list... Is that enough?? As long as there are no preservatives or additives...

Re: Rose/flower advice please

Thank you both. I have already gone over (and over lol) the safe foods list. Just trying to make sure before I order anything. I'm assuming if it is food grade or safe for humans it is also safe for crabs... As long as it's organic and there are no preservatives... right?? I guess I'm trying to find...

Rose/flower advice please

Just want to double check. Roses for making tea are safe right? They are 100% natural dried, organic, no additives... Also, what other flowers do your crabbies like?

Re: molting concern plz help now!

I would ISO the molter just to be safe. That way noone eats him or steals his shell. Hopefully someone with more experience will be along shortly.

Re: Adopted some salt marsh crabs that will not live much longer

It is hard to tell, but they do not look like land hermit crabs to me either.

Re: Naked and missing limbs

It may just be the angle, but those extra shells look too big to me. Also if you're not sure about which shell was his you might try some smaller or at least lighter than the one he is in (Along with same size and larger) I'd imagine it's already hard enough moving with just one leg. Just a thought,...

Another flood and -1 crab

Ok, I just had a flood in January and luckily everyone was good. Now I'm dealing with another flood... I've filled out the emergency template a few times before. This is not really an emergency, but my info might help to figure out what went wrong... Temp and humidity are good, several digital guage...

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...
