Re: Shell evac from a almost limbless crab

Update! Tiny is doing amazing, he has just finished with a recent molt and seems to have his big claw back, as well as most of his legs! Thank you everyone for all help and advice, he and myself greatly appreciate it and could not have done it without the support. I will try to post a picture soon ...

He’s back!!

And he’s being a picky eater...[emoji23][emoji23] Whatever the little red/purple bits are, he wasn’t interested, bc he otherwise emptied the section! Hmm... and I think the pepper seeds with it are new too! I had put a mix, along with something else in that section I just gotta remember what cause I...

Re: He’s back!!

Thank you! He’s been slow to come back around but he is. Now that he’s eaten some, rested, drank some, rested, foraged, and- you guessed it! Rested some more... he’s starting to act and move around more like his usual self. He had me a little concerned at first but he’s just fine now I think. He nee...

Re: SURVEY! SHELLS

Awesome! I think it looks great! I LOVE that big wood piece on the right side- the log basically- it is so perfect! Everything else looks great too- can’t wait to get mine set up finally! [emoji16][emoji1303][emoji1303]

Blueberry Hermit Crabs

First- just google them- they’ll pop up! Second, yes there are a few stateside, however they no longer legally allow them to be exported. They will still show up occasionally but very rarely.

Re: SURVEY! SHELLS

I do a little of both; I have the shop where 95% of the shells stay (well.... mostly lol) but I do leave one each of the various sizes of my crabs on the ground, in case of an attack or anything- I’m paranoid. [emoji6]

Re: Hermit crab has abandoned its shell

One thing I did note that could be improved (aside from the saltwater that you already pointed out) is in the diet. Here is recommended food(s) for the crabs, and you may also want to see the unsafe food list at your leisure. Unfortunately, the pellets are not healthy for them. We are told to feed t...

Re: He’s back!!

Thanks! He really is vibrant right now!
He is an Indo, or Coenobita brevimanus

Re: Hermit crab has abandoned its shell

Yes, it sounds like he is most likely gone. I am so sorry. Maybe one of the moderators can chime in with some tips for future changes you might make, if you get decide to adopt another.
I’m so sorry you lost your friend.

Hermit crab has abandoned its shell

Oh I’m so so sorry. I hate when they start streaking and then worse, staying that way... it is so hard to fight that once they start down that road. It sounds like you were doing everything you could, maybe if you could fill out the emergency template we can pinpoint anything else that may have cont...

He’s back!!

Thanks guys! He’s just been snoozing all day, hasn’t moved much, so about as expected. I’m betting he will drink and eat a bit soon, and that should get him perked back up again! I can’t wait to get a good look at him, but he’s not ready to be bothered yet. [emoji39] So I’m just waiting til he’s bac...

Yay!! Mr EnDoh came back up today; he’s been down since December 14! I couldn’t be more pleased, and from what I’ve seen so far his colors are incredible! I’ll post a ‘color pic’ as soon as he decides to get cleaned up! Now we just gotta wait for Princess and Mr S! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...
