Re: What are your crabs up to?

I have 5 crabs in almost identical green turbos now. How the heck am I supposed to tell any of them apart?! :( I got some new shells on Friday and finally got them put in today. Mario is obsessively checking them out. Earlier he was eating dinner, tried to leave the food dish, lost his balance and ...

Re: New mom and questions

Also do you have a glass tank? They hold in heat and humidity much better than plastic.

Re: Upgraded to 29g Crabitat - Feedback please!

Hi everyone! I've had my 4 hermies for about a month now. After thinking a 10g tank was fine (per the guy at the pet store :roll: ) I quickly realized I needed to upgrade. I opted for the 29g and have spent the last few weeks getting it ready. I swear I felt like an architect/engineer trying to mea...

Hermit Crab Supplies Store

I have 3 small pp’s and I have bought pretty much everything in Petco, Petsmart, and Amazon that is for them or could even be used for them. There is just not many places that have everything. Does anyone a good hermit crab supplies store or any store that has a lot of stuff for them?

Found “Molting” Hermit Crab

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Play sand and eco earth. 6 inches deep. 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they located and what temperature and humidity do they usually read? Yes. They are right in the middle an...

First Crab Fight

I have three crabs that are new. They have been with me for almost 2 weeks now and so far, as I know, they’ve gotten along fine. My smallest crab, Blue, is molting and there doesn’t seem to be an issue with it. My biggest crab, Thunder, has always been a bit aggressive. He will take food from the ot...

Thermometer and Hygrometer Stopped Working!

So basically, my temperature has been at 80 for days now without moving. I thought the consistency was just because of having the same patters everyday. Today I noticed that my humidity stayed at 80% all day without me using my repti fogger which is unusual because I have a lot of trouble keeping my...

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

Congrats. I know this is kinda silly but how much does a hermit crab pinch hurt. I have never been pinched by mine and I am wondering if it’s like a bee sting or something like that. For some reason I have always wondered that lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk It depends on the size of the cra...

Clean Sponges or Throw them Out

I haven’t had my hermit crabs and although I dip the sponges in hot water and then squeeze them out, I have heard that you should microwave the sponges every few days. I don’t know if I should do the microwave cleaning method or every few day or throw out the sponges and replace them with new ones. ...

Is my Crab Going to Molt?

I have 3 PP hermit crabs including my smallest, Blue. I had only like 2 inches of substrate in the tank but I added some to make it about 6 inches. Blue has been looking at bigger shells and have been digging lots of holes and hiding and is not as active. I also noticed him in his food and water mor...

I’ve Been Cleaning my Stuff with Tap Water!!

I’ve been cleaning my food dishes and water dishes (both fresh and salt) with tap water without treating it. I got them Sunday and it’s the next Thursday, will that be okay if I change now or is it too late?

The middle one is the shy one and her name is Ruby. And my smallest is very energetic and named Blue. I love them so much alr...

Crab Food from Pet Stores

So I saw that crab food (like pellets) are not too good for hermit crabs. Is this true? And if it is, does that mean feed them other things along with the food or avoid it completely? What about treats and/or other reptile food? I am a new hermit crab owner and have been feeding them their store bou...
