Re: Changing substrate

BTW - I edited my post so check that out. It isn't necessary to use bottled water. You can use tap. Just use a dechlorinator. A lot of us use a product called Prime. You need a dechlorinator that removes chlorine, and chloramine as well as neutralizes ammonia and heavy metals. :) Yes! I saw the edi...

Re: Changing substrate

Hello! Yes, you want to use dechlorinated marine saltwater or dechlorinated freshwater to make it sandcastle consistency :) Edit: BTW - it isn't necessary to change out your substrate unless you are having a bacteria bloom or flooding. I also wanted to let you know that I know how difficult Tapatal...

Re: Changing substrate

Lol! Replying to my own post here, But I was doing some research while I was waiting for somebody to reply, and I came across an older post where people were advising that the OP used salt water to moisten the substrate. So, should I use my Instant Ocean salt water mix to expand my hermie’s substrat...

Changing substrate

Hello my fellow crabbers! Quick question, when changing my substrate, I got the Eco Earth compressed coconut fiber. So you have to add water when changing the substrate for it expand. So my question is, can I use tap water for that? Or do I need to stick with bottled water? The last substrate I got,...

Re: Shells

Thank you guys! And how do you know what sizes to get and stuff? I’ve never bought any offline before, so I just don’t want to get the wrong size because I feel like one of them really needs a new one. I can tell he wants one, but he doesn’t like any of the ones I got in there. But now that I know w...

Ant overload!!!

Hello everybody! I need some help. I have a 20 gallon tank, for my two hermit crabs. But it has a screen top to it, so seeing how it has been getting colder, I usually keep a baby blanket over the top of it to keep the heat and humidity in the tank. Last night, I decided to Expose one of the corners...

Re: Hermit crap shell mold

And if that is true, they are in shells right now that are way too big for them. Because they aren’t that big. But the hole in the shell is way bigger th...
