Re: Not sure if it’s an emergency or normal?! Newbie here

It’s been maybe a month since they’ve had deep enough substrate and the newbie crabs buried immediately. But my regular crabs still hung out on the top until I guess they realized they could bury and so now they are gone lol no foul odor so that’s good. It’s just I was so used to seeing them all the...

Re: Help! I am freaking out!

Thank you! I will def work on insulating and will search for the best way to do that. I am stopping the heat lamp and adding water to that side to moisten up the substrate and also I just need another heat lamp. I give them egg shells for calcium. I’m not sure what brand. I have to check. It’s one t...

Re: Help! I am freaking out!

Also....I am no longer using the heating lamp. I just know it needs to be warmer than 70 :-/ I am looking for a better heating pad now. Shaking my head. Welp...at least I know all my hermit crabs are ok. I have never had more anxiety about any pet in my life before being a crab owner.

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

How do I prevent the mold from continuing to grow once I remove it? It’s only grown since I added moss. Should I just remove the moss?

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Ok so now I got what I think is mold growing on some moss I added to help with humidity. It’s like white fuzzy stuff. Is this bad or hazardous? The tank is in my son’s room so I don’t want him getting sick. Thanks y’all!

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

One of my heating pads is zoomed. It covers half the back of the tank but my other pad is tiny. I may just get a big one. I will try using a towel on top to help. As long as I don’t use the heat lamp the humidity is super high. I just want it warmer so maybe a bigger second pad. I have a 20 gallon. ...

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Ok update and question! My molter is still doing great, walking around, and I moved her and my other hermit to their new aquarium. It has two heating pads on the side, sand and eco earth mix, and the humidity is great! However, I can’t get the temperature to stay above 70. It always drops between 6...
