Re: Basketball Net??

You could cut the net to make it larger, and to avoid double layering it to prevent crabs from potentially getting stuck.

Re: Test Run: Garlic?

Wait.... Garlic is on the unsafe list? Since when??? :hlol: I've been offering it to my crabs (usually its due to other foods being seasoned with it) for ages now. My theory was its great for my fish and shrimp, as I have food in my rotation that has garlic in it so haven't even batted an eye givin...

Re: Adding New Crabs to Crabitat

No, they can stay underground during a molt for more than a month, depending on the size, longer than that is not unusual.

Re: Adding New Crabs to Crabitat

It looks fine to me, didn't see D3 added mentioned on that product. Oh, so this crab isn't new then...understood! I would support the possibility of him being attacked during a molt, that seems most likely given your details so far. I would definitely recommend increasing the depth of the substrate....

Re: Adding New Crabs to Crabitat

It would be ideal if you could keep it at or above six inches deep, or three times deeper than your largest crab is. Increasing the substrate depth will allow for crabs digging underground to molt properly, and decrease the risk of them being found by the others. What kind of calcium powder is it? Y...

Re: Tank topper questions!

I have done two toppers myself, and on one of them I did have to break the glass to remove it, but I did it carefully by only breaking off large pieces at a time and removing them. I definitely would also recommend against breaking the glass if you can, but it can crack easily during this time. If y...

Re: Adding New Crabs to Crabitat

Hello, welcome to the forum! :) Typically, you can mix various sizes of crabs together without an issue, but if one is known to be interested in being aggressive, then it might not be a good idea. If you don't mind, there are a few questions we would like to ask to get a better understanding of what...

Re: Test Run: Garlic?

I think this is very interesting, because I have never even considered trying garlic, but I personally won't test it out just to be safe.

Re: Beware: Naples Sea Shell Company

There could be a number of reasons why you haven't received them yet, and personally I don't think you've waited long enough to be absolutely sure.

I ordered from them before and didn't get my order for nearly a week, so four days isn't quite worrisome IMO.

Re: 4" Substrate vs. Wrong Ratio

Despite the fact that a lot of people believe the ratio is extremely important, it really isn't meant to be followed to perfection.

I personally do use the 5:1 ratio roughly, it's not exact but I do have both types of substrate mixed together for optimal moisture and humidity.

Re: Tik- Tok. Baby Hermies taken from beach

Unfortunately, as sad as it might seem, and given that we naturally want to offer care advice, we can’t always convince others to do something and avoid another. Since this specific place is a massive means of social media, it’s be rather hard to do much more than just reporting the post. Sent from ...

Re: Naked Crab!

Thank you for all the advice! I did isolate the crab and kept him in the dark as you suggested and i ended up having to manually re-shell him... What do i look for or do now? (I am running this morning to get more and better substrate for them as well as a humidity gage and I've removed the sponges...
