Re: When would you dig?

Everything is good and as it should be. I’ve had 2 successful molters who both switched shells when they came back up. Just worried about these other two. I’ll let them chill for a bit longer. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Mama of 4 PP’s: Crabby, Hermie, Mr. Crabs, & Squidward Sent ...

When would you dig?

I set up my crabitat towards the end of May. 3 of my 4 crabs went down right away for a molt and came back up about a month later (I posted pics in here. The 4th crab must have went down after the 2 came up cuz I haven’t seen him. But even one of my crabs that went down right away hasn’t come back u...

Knats

Thanks!

Re: Bacteria bloom

Also, ive had the 5 crabs we own in a much larger tank with deeper substrate for about a month now and since we put them in there we rarely see any of them. 2 of them I havent seen since the 1stday we moved them over. If the substrate wasn’t as deep erode as it is now, they may have went down for a...

Re: Little Crabby

It stresses them out? Really? I did not know that. When I’m fidgeting in the tank they come right up to me. And always pop out to check things out. I didn’t know it stressed them out.

Re: Little Crabby

Imaging my surprise this morning when I picked up his shell and it was empty. I nearly had a heart attack. I did a quick scan of available shells and realized he changed shells. And then I located him in the moss pit. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190807/752c1e1264b8be3ba2ebada6b68e3458.jpg •••...

Little Crabby

One of my new little guys (I’ve had him for a couple months) has appeared from the down under. I haven’t seen him in at least a month or so. This is Mr. Crabs and he is NOT shy. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190807/22a9bd67886ea8163a86ac3f98354832.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190807/1...

Re: Hmmm?

I soaked it in a bucket of salt water made with kosher salt for a day or so. Then I baked it in the oven at 200 degrees until it was visibly dry. Making sure to flip it over so the bottom could dry as well. Maybe I didn’t let it dry out enough and that’s why this grew? I’m not sure. I just did what ...

I’m basic.

Re: Driftwood from the beach [emoji905]?

I brought driftwood home from a trip to Lake Superior. I soaked it in water and kosher salt like I read to use and baked it until the wood was dry. And my wood started to mold within a couple days. So I took it out. I have no clue what the issue was. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Ma...

Re: How to transfer crabs

Just keep your new tank set up as if it’s got crabs in it. Then as they come up, transfer them. Don’t dig them up. My tank is never at 80 degrees and my crabs do just fine. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Mama of 4 PP’s: Crabby, Hermie, Mr. Crabs, & Squidward Sent from my iPhone using...

Re: New crabitat new owner

3 crabs have still not been seen since we changed to the larger tank and gave them deeper substrate. I'm thinking they were ready to molt but the conditions werent right so as soon as it was they went down to do just that? I changed my tank to give my crabs a bigger tank and deeper substrate. All 4...
