Re: New to the crab world!

I placed him back down in the hole and covered him, should I still isolate him, I don't want to dig him up again and add more stress

Re: New to the crab world!

So I have my first molting crab, I didn't realize he was buried where I was digging, to clean out and rearrange tank and found a body and the shell, I thought it was dead but then saw he was actually in the shell still and moved so I'm hoping that it didn't stress him out too much. I also did upgrad...

Re: New to the crab world!

He is definitely buried in substrate, I upgraded size of their tank today and the only spot I didn't touch in old one was the last place I had seen him which was under a rock house. So the mound that was around him I have not touched and have left the heater on in that tank to keep him warm while th...

Re: New to the crab world!

How long will a crab stay buried? We got 2 new crabs a little over a week ago to join our other 2. One of them has been out and about exploring and changing shells almost daily, the other buried itself almost instantly and hasn't been seen since.

Re: New to the crab world!

Thank you! I have an active fishtank that is I think a 30 gal and if i upgrade them , I can use that for the crabs, it should keep them happy for awhile.

Re: New to the crab world!

Thank you, I switch things around every couple of days, which is fun to watch them explore. But now I'm obsessed with these little guys and need a bigger tank, want something taller, so they can climb more

Re: New to the crab world!

I only mist the moss on the platform, they seem to like it better when it's moist versus drier

Re: New to the crab world!

Just followed your link for Walmart and saw that they are sold by Florida shells and gifts, of you go to their actual website they are cheaper for the same lot of shells

Re: New to the crab world!

Thanks, Walmart shopping is very slow! I just ordered more from Naples should have them by the end of the week. I have had the hammock since day 2 of the tank, I put some moss on it and mist every other day and haven't noticed any mold issues so far, but will keep an eye on it. My smaller guys love ...
