Re: trust

I rarely ever pick up any of my crabs, and if I do it’s only for a couple minutes but they are still inside the tank when I do this. I really don’t have any a good reason to handle them, they are best when left alone to do their own thing.

Re: Sand Dollar Bits

They would provide calcium, and you can use them as long as they are not treated with bleach or whitening chemicals.

My crabs poop in their water dish all the time- especially when I put extra salt in the salt water dish. :lol:
Why are you putting extra salt in the water dish? Putting too much can cause the salinity to be too high, which isn't good for the crabs.

Re: hermit crab breeding, infertile eggs

There are very common times when a pair of crabs decide to breed, but the keeper is unable to care for the eggs to raise them to hatch.

Re: Home Sweet Home?

Never release any wild animal into the wild, because it is typically not where they came from in the first place, and you run the risk of introducing a species that should not live there, or it may quickly die due to the incorrect resources of that area. There are laws for releasing animals into the...

Re: Different species help?

As I have said just recently in the chat, exotic crabs should have at least one other species buddy, and they don't appreciate being crowded over with any other species of crabs, meaning that you shouldn't put a max amount of crabs that your tank could handle, they need enough room to dig for proper...

Re: Humidity 103%

I haven't ever heard of an acurite reading over 99, the display wasn't built to do that, at least mine wasn't.

okay thanks. i have a lot of calcium blocks in my tank already.
You say calcium blocks, as in the vacation time release supplement? I do not recommend these, you can use cuttlebone instead. Beneficial items that offer calcium are cuttlebone, dry coral, egg shells, sea urchins, and crushed shells.

Re: shrimp? crickets?

Yes, they love meats, especially seafood! I give my crabs raw shrimp occasionally, the E's are always a big fan of it. I personally don't recommend feeding feeder crickets to them if that's what you mean, you can always get dehydrated crickets as long as the ingredients don't have any unsafe additiv...
