Re: Dead crab?

OMG that's horrible! I wish there was a way to make the sale of hermit crabs illegal. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk Maybe instead of making it illegal maybe it would be better to have where they have better conditions and can’t dig them up. So the only ones for sale would be the ones that are...

Re: Dead crab?

I don't know if this is a good idea, but maybe you could get a toothpick or something and move its legs and claws around to see if it moves

Re: 150g topper and spruce up

I have thought of adding toppers like that but I and my mom don’t know if it is safe. Especially with a big family include two kids who are under 6 yrs old. Nice set up!

Re: Substrate

Im probably not what you would experienced, but I can tell you some that I know. Some more experienced crabbers use a 5:1 raito of playsand to ecoearth. My crabs love the eco earth and I also didn't buy enough sand so my mixture is around 4:3-4 (playsand to EE) More EE can make it a higher chance to...

Re: Heating help

We have our heaters hooked up to a thermostat we purchased from amazon for around $20. You put a probe from the thermostat into the tank, plug the heater into the thermostat, plug the thermostat into the outlet, and set what your high temperature limit. The thermostat will control the tank from get...

Re: Fresh Oak branches

Thats good. I once worked really hard on a coconut hut, and it got moldy within a few days (I didn't soak it as described). The hermies loved it but I had to throw it out.

Re: Fresh Oak branches

It might help to prevent mold by soaking the wood in declorinated salt water for 24 hours

Re: New Hermit crab owner

Congrats on the new crabs! If you don’t want to get a glass lid you can use something like plastic wrap. If you get the brand of heat mat Xenocrab mentioned but you can’t insulate it, you can wrap tinfoil around a peice of cardboard. 🙂

Re: Crab needing a home ~ Austin, TX

Hi there! My name is Sam. So over the years, we’ve been pretty successful at keeping hermit crabs, we had about 8 for a couple of years. But suddenly a couple months ago they all started dying. We have only one left that I’m pretty sure is one we’ve had for about 4 years (can’t be too sure because ...

Re: Heating help

My house varies so much with temperatures - the only way I could keep the temp in the tank a decent range was to have multiple UTH's. I have two on the back and one on each side. My tank is upstairs in a room in our old farmhouse, no air conditioning for summer, and baseboard electric heat for wint...
