Re: Need to move tank but has 2 molters

You may want to add a note to the extension cord...... Especially if they will be doing work while you are not there. Contractor's and builders are well known to unplug whatever they want to plug in their equipment instead.... And maybe a sign that says "Live Animals" so they don't knock into the ta...

Re: Climbed out of cage

Last night one of my new big crabs decided to climb on the back plastic piece of the glass lid, to the power cord going between the two LED lights... Nothing is within reach of those items by like 5" or more....... I have no idea how he got up there, but there he was when I got home. Stayed there fo...

Re: Missing my Boys :(

Think of them as a gang of gaggling women....... If one goes to the restroom, the rest follow with her. :-D

Not that I'm like that, but most other women are. lol

Re: Where to get shells?

I have ordered some Mexican Turbo's from ebay. My 3 bigger PP's all moved into them immediately.

Re: Do Hermit Crabs Need Holes In Transportation Containers?

From what I understand, it would really depend on the length of time they would be in the transport containers and the size of the crabs in relation to the container. An hour or less: I would say no need for holes if the container is big enough. Longer than an hour: I would say yes if the container ...

Re: Wondering .....

Hahah. Why was it evil??

I could just imagine the look on my boss' face though. She has one of those expressions that displays EVERYTHING she is thinking, on top of being a germophobe.... The combo with a hermit crab at work would have been comical.

Re: Wondering .....

That makes me feel better. :-) Thankfully I was able to talk them into letting me pick him up after work! I can imagine the look on coworker's faces if they saw a hermit crab sitting on my desk. LOL

Re: Wondering .....

Meaning I would pick him up between 1-2PM, and then go back to work until 5pm. And be home by 5:30pm to put him in the tank.

Re: Wondering .....

Unfortunately I'm already at work and didn't know about it until after I got here. And I am not sure what they will give me to transport him in. >.>

I had no idea, so wasn't able to plan well in advance, unfortunately.

Wondering .....

Good morning! I'm currently at work but arranging to meet someone in town at lunch to pick up a crab from them, but the only time they can meet me today is during my lunch break. How long would a hermit crab be OK in a general office setting in a small box or something? I would hate to pick it up if...

Thermostat Questions

Good morning! I have a few questions about thermostats. I have never had to use one before with my previous tank set ups and pets. However, I feel there is a real need to invest in one for my little crabby buddies. Does anyone have a suggestion on the best brand or type to use? How do they work anyw...

Re: New Owner

Would it be best to just take the lid off the little container you think and let him get out on his own? I can use spare flat shells to add little steps in the container, and push substrate up to the outside so he can get out easily.

Re: New Owner

Well, the one that surface molted I think is about done. 90% of the exo is gone. I've added dried shrimp and veggies into his little tub for him and I've noticed he has eaten those and drank water. I've had to refill the capfull of primed fresh water twice now! Yesterday I added a small turbo with r...

Re: New Owner

Makes you want to pull your hair out. lol On one hand I'm worried something happened to them. On the other I'm worried I didn't even see them eat or drink anything before they all vanished, and not even sure where they went to because they backfilled behind themselves. Two of them had little windows...
