Re: Is my crab stuck under his sand?

Don’t dig him up. They burrow a lot, so that’s probably just him digging some tunnels. Unless you’re using calcium sand which solidified after drying, there shouldn’t be any real concern here

Re: What are your crabs up to?

Well, I attached the coco lining to the moss because the holes were letting moss spill out onto the substrate and i was worried about mold... guess who tore up the lining and now there’s both coco fibers and moss on the substrate now... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201002/25fe596382510fe97375f...

Re: Maintaining good substrate consistency

Yeah, that's the main issue I'm having. The right half of my tank and especially the substrate around the pools is almost perfect consistency.

Re: New hermie owner

Already looking a lot better! Next step is to make the water dishes deep enough for them to submerge. You probably also want a digital thermometer+hygrometer which you can get from walmart. those tend to be more accurate. You may also want to provide them with more shells. EDIT: I see you have spong...

Re: Maintaining good substrate consistency

Yeah, my humidity has been at 99% ever since I added the playsand. I do mist the tank, although I try to limit this to once a week.

Keeping heat during winter?

So here in North Carolina, the weather can be EXTREMELY unpredictable. Just last week, the temperature was probably 85-95, but suddenly over the weekend that changed to 55-65. This has taken the temperature in my crabitat from about 84 degrees to 74 degrees, and my parents won't let me raise the tem...

Re: Maintaining good substrate consistency

Well... it looks like not all of them are molting after all. I replaced their food dish and tried out some fresh tilapia, and 2 of the “molters” came up from the ground and the two and the one who was already up are now sharing it

Maintaining good substrate consistency

Hi guys, I haven't posted in a while but I have returned with a question. The substrate on the RHS of my tank has a pretty perfect consistency, as whenever I stick my finger straight down into the substrate, the substrate holds. On this side I have about 5:2 sand:EE. But on the other side of my tank...

Re: Hermits being weird don't know if I should be concerned.

Yes, crabs are known to eat wood like cholla wood and cork wood. Unless the wood isn’t safe for them, you shouldn’t have to worry
