Re: I got Hermit Crabs[emoji3590][emoji886][emoji3590]

Sounds like you’re on the right track to me. I try to keep my temp and humidity at or above 80. Sometimes at night it will fall below 80 especially during winter. I only have purple pinchers as well. Use salt that is used for saltwater aquariums like instant ocean for the saltwater pool. Offer plent...

Re: Air stones vs emitters

I was thinking the emitters might cause less splash out but I thought maybe someone here had tried them before

Re: Can I see your water pools?

It’s hard to tell in these pics but they are deep enough for the crabs to submerge. Although I will be getting something deeper sometime. As well as hopefully finding at least a 75 gallon tank. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200714/5d11943c5e38f7e419b6336cf14857c5.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cd...

Re: Kosher salt with anticaking agent. Ok to boil wood ?

So I guess there is kosher salt without the anticaking agent. I’m not familiar with ferrocyanides

Water activity

This was back in January and I haven’t seen him swim since. This was when i first added filters and took out my bubblers. Crabby wasn’t scared of the filters a bit. My ramps are different now but this was just a quick set up. My filters are more secure too. This is Crabby in the freshwater. https://...

Re: How to boil moldy wood...

I just quickly bought some Morton kosher salt but it says it has yellow prussiate of soda as an anti caking agent. I thought kosher wouldn’t have anything added. Is it ok to use for boiling wood? I also have some sea salt but I thought it might have other stuff in it hence the reason I bought kosher.

Re: Few questions about food, feeding and storage

Hello! Happy 4th of July! I personally make mixes for my crabs. I myself am too busy and have too many animals, people and plants to take care of to prepare fresh foods for ALL of my hermies on a daily basis. By making mixes I am able to make sure that I cover all of the food groups covered in the ...

Few questions about food, feeding and storage

I could use some advice on feeding. It takes me about 45 minutes to prepare food every time I change food, depending on how many things I put in. Sometimes it takes longer. I guess I’m slow anyway lol. I have meats, fruits and vegetables in the freezer. I do my best to rotate but also provide a vari...

Re: Feeling more confident today

So sweet. Wish my kids would’ve stayed involved. I feel like I took over. Lol. But in their defense I made it difficult to get into the tank to do any maintenance as well as change food and water.
