Re: A new cast!

Since you live where it definitely gets cold in the winters, the UTH on the sides are simply to keep the temp around 80 degrees. The heat lamps will tend to dry out things, and most of us now use the UTH all the way across the back above the substrate level. (An inch or so won’t make a difference if...

Heath Food Store Deals!

Man I wish we had something like that around here but we don’t even have a Whole Foods- nothing. Just small mom and pop stores that sell a handful of very overpriced items and Amish stores (that aren’t owned by Amish lol!) You’re so fortunate to have a place like that! Hey maybe you could start a (n...

Re: PP?

Thanks everyone! We sure like him an awful lot. And he does have a particularly large BP! Ten is just a unique little crabbie. [emoji6][emoji177] And yeah, I wouldn’t have had an objection if he had been an Indo! They’re so neat! Someday. [emoji3590]Dave the Wondercrab~Patpat the Scaredy Cat~MaggieM...

Re: PP?

I got a couple more, and also agree just a PP now, but those eyes man- they are so adorable, and so not round shaped lol! But they’re cute pics so I had to share anyway! [emoji6] and he has an official new name- meet Ten, named after one of the first to climb Mt Everest. He’s a climber all right- my...

Re: Just Snacking On An Apple

Love it! Very sweet picture.

The calendar idea is a good one- it could be an excellent fundraiser- or something!

Re: Coconut mat

I’m almost done with my mats on egg crate- I used these, and they were really nice and thick, and tightly woven, so I expect them to last for a while. (I really hope so bc I’m not sure what I’ll do when they finally destroy it in the future! Lol but for now, these are where I got them, I didn’t noti...

Re: top 10 hermit crab habitats- please help

I sent an email last night, even if it doesn’t help a bit, it makes me feel better to know I tried.

What kind of wood is this??

Hey! I know it’s been a few days, and I checked with my husband who is basically an expert on this sort of stuff (and he’s super good at identifying basically anything. He said I’d have to challenge him next time! Smartalek .) Anyway, the answer is... driftwood Pine root. He added “Probably Bristlec...

PP?

Yep, I’ll try to get a couple more when he comes back out- he’s made a nice little cave under the moss pit he likes to hide in. I was expecting him to be a PP, and if his eyes were more round I’d have not questioned it a bit. All my others have button round eyes, so this guy threw me a bit, with his...

PP?

Ok, I need to know if I’m seeing things, or if this little one really is different. I noticed his not round eyes today- I adopted him last Sunday but have been trying to let them get settled and not stressed. But in visiting with this one toDAY, while he was up, it made me question if he’s an unusua...

Re: 55 Gallon Upgrade

I believe I saw one similar at Walmart, as a corner caddy. If it’s the same one I saw! They also had a nice deep larger sized one, but I had to get the little size for the time being. I’m working on my new big tank too- it’s so fun, and I’m enjoying my build so far. Hope you do too- good luck! [emoj...

Urgent! Sick Crab

I’m sorry he’s not feeling good. The only thing I would add is when you iso, give him a something like bit of PB and honey, with some calcium, all close for him, a couple of options for shells, and some water. I’ve seen a lot of people use bottle caps for the water in the iso, and the food on a qtip...

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this. I don’t have an addition, but I think it’s great! I’ve only shopped with ones you already have listed. Thanks again!
