Re: PP in a Pink Murex?

I have no explanation or advice....just wanted to say what a cutie he is in those funny pants! Haha thanks! Thought it was just going to be a temporary 'new shell' thing, but he's still rolling with it. Seems to be happy in there so guess it's all good! [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapata...

PP in a Pink Murex?

I adopted a PP last year and had some aggression with shells even though there are plenty of appropriate preferred shells to the point that this crab was rocking another in a turbo shell. Finally decided to add some more, even if unpopular, and my adopted PP is and has been in a pink murex since (wh...

Re: Finally Upgraded! (55gal)

Just got a chance to look at your pics here. Take a look at my reply in "Miscellaneous". After seeing your picture and setup, I'm leaning back towards purchasing a 55G early next week. Although a free tank with stand and lights is still tempting and is larger than my 20G long. I also have 4 and they...

Re: Adopted (2) Crabs - Need help with Substrate

As noted, purchase the playsand for children that says "screened/washed" as there are many different playsands available. I use the Quikrete brand, but they also have different sands available depending on use (unscreened and unwashed more for mixing with concrete). A 50lb bag is <$5 here in NJ at H...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

I totally understand! Thank you for putting yourself out there to help others during these crazy times. Just make sure you take care of yourself too! Our Petco and Home Depot stores are open too, but the hours are cut short (both are only open til 6pm). I'm also in one of the PA counties ordered to...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

How are you making out with your upgrade? I was able to get my 6 bags of sand and egg crate at Lowe's, and the rest of my supplies from Amazon. They even delivered a day earlier than planned. I'm working on filling the tank now and calibrating my new hygrometer. I hope you're doing ok! [emoji847] S...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

Good luck. I'm sure you'll keep us posted. I will as things evolve. Same here in NJ. Was hoping to start tomorrow. Slept all day after long work weekend... now everything closes at 8PM. Curfew from 8PM-5AM here starting today apparently. Haven't gotten to the news yet though. Just getting a lot of t...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

I'm not sure if the sale is going on now. I usually get an email from Petco about it if it is. But I'm planning to use my spare 55 gal and upgrade this week. I'm going to grab the glass tops from That Pet Place. There's 2 of them total since there is a center brace on the top. They're about $36: ht...

Re: $1/gallon sale at Petco

They are doing this again now, aren't they? I have 4 crabs that are all up and in less than a year went from circular death cage to critter carrier to 10G to 20G long... now I'm thinking 55G. My adopted crab is kinda a bully. He was in a small pink/purple shell and was the only pic I received so tho...

Re: Some kind of Aggression!? (pic)

The 360 isn't a pan cam. I do have the wyze pan cam for my living room, dining room. The thing I prefer about the 360 is it's not a square that can just tip a little on an angle. The 360 can be turned and tipped on almost any angle. It's just a little more expensive than the wyze. I know others hav...

Re: Some kind of Aggression!? (pic)

I put my cameras in the tank. I found it difficult to position the wyze cam. But I use now the 360 Smart camera. Much easier to postion. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200302/4bfcf71c8d2a315c56de74f9796e8333.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200302/fc8bb604048cf475f39f42f924f7a483.jpg Sent...

Re: Help with reducing clutter?

Thanks so much for the pictures!!! If this was possible, I'd pay you or anyone with all these great ideas and DIY tricks to just do my upgrade in a few months! Definitely have a lot more ideas though. Really just want to upgrade at this point especially with all crabs up simultaneously. Not sure I'l...
