Re: Baking substrate

You shouldnt really need to do anything with the sand in that amount of time, most of us just scoop the poo and other debris as we see it, and occasionally (yearly/bi-yearly or sometimes more...) deep clean/ stir it all up. To really be able to tell you what the best thing to do would be though, I’d...

Re: The Hermit Crab Patch food?

They have wonderful food, and my crabs enjoy everything I’ve ordered from there too! Just placed an order with HermitGrub on Etsy, as did RiNiKy and it was a great experience for both of us and my crabs absolutely killed the two new ones I offered them! So they’re worth a look too. Prices are also o...

Re: What are your crabs up to?

He is a strawberry! And thank you. We think ‘he’ at least. This is the fella that escaped at his original owners home just before I adopted his colony, and was found in their basement 6 weeks later! It’s a total mystery but I was able to meet with the guy and pick this one up too. [emoji3059] We are...

Cuddly crabs!!!

Who says crabs won’t cuddle? I know not everyone interacts with their crabs as I do, but Princess is truly friendly and sweet, and she is growing to trust me. She put herself here and stayed there for a few minutes. Maybe for warmth, but still, she could’ve chosen elsewhere.... Princess comes out fo...

Post Molt questions

Post Molt Questions: This little crab buried himself the 2nd day I had him. He was buried shallow in a 10 gallon tank in about 3 inches of hermit crab sand and EE unmixed. (it had 2 others in it that I moved out into a 20 gallon.) I added an inch a day until it had about 6 inches in it. He came out...

What are your crabs up to?

I love seeing all the videos of the silly crabs! They’re always funny to me. Let’s see- all my big ones are being lazy, my E tank is slow right now bc they’re about half digging in the sub, and big PP Barry down for her first molt w me. Poor Gene is her tiny PP sidekick and is so lost without her to...

I’m the happy adopter who got the others, and would love to get this guy back with the rest of his crew, but may need some help with transport if anybody is willing to donate an hour or two of your time to pass it off along the route- it’s a 5 hr drive to get there for me and I unfortunately can’t d...

Re: Pesticide Spray

I would say wrapping it for about a day is a totally reasonable and less stressful approach, and so long as the house is shut up and no air intakes running etc it should be ok. Or as ok as that can ever be when forced upon us. IMO, someone else may know more about it that I don’t. Best of luck! Dave...

Crab can't get down after climbing on ceiling

Nah, they go where they want to, and will plop themselves down on sand or even water to break the fall (sometimes.) Others they just let fly, but they really can’t get high enough in most tanks to sustain that type of injury. Point is, crabs are climbers, stubborn and relentless if they want to be i...
