Re: Back to back molting, or sick?

When you says your crab is 5 to 10 years old, who had her before you had her? Do you know what the conditions were where she was kept? I had bought her from my local Petco. Conditions of the tank were not decent. Lots of overcrowding, not enough substrate, I think there was even a dead crab or two ...

Back to back molting, or sick?

Hello. Recently my smallest crab Sammie has come up from her first tank molt.She's about 5 - 10 years old, I believe. I've had her for almost two months and I'm a bit concerned for her and her health. She's been up for about three to four days and she seems to get more lethargic each day that passes...

Up and out too early?

So my three crabs went down for a molt a month or two ago. The biggest one (as big as a mandarin) just came up this morning. Out of concern, I carefully dug up the other two to check up on them. They are perfectly fine, and I put them in ISO. Though, they are wondering around the tanks eating and dr...

Re: Tank Upgrade Recommendations

Hey. That’s pretty exciting! For tank brand I would suggest Aqueon. Their tanks do a great job with keeping moisture in.


Thanks.

Re: It's Been a While...

If you are that concerned then go for it. As long as you are careful you can go a long way. Though if he is still alive I would suggest moving him into the ISO. So he won’t struggle to come back up.


Thanks.

Re: How do I Introduce New Hermit Crabs to My Tank? Please help!

Good idea? More than definitely. Hermit crabs are social creatures and love to interact with not only you but their own kind as well. I would recommend sticking with getting him one friend for now, and waiting a bit to get a third. Maybe a week or two to see how you like it and then see if you could...

New hermit crabs and molting signs

Hello. I'm new to this site. I've been taking care of crabs for about 5.5 years now. I've owned about 5 total and to this day some things really confuse me about them. Today I got two small babies that wear shells smaller than the 2.5" sizes. When I got them there weren't in the best place, the tank...
