Re: Craft Moss

i don’t think you need a 60 gallon for how small your crabs are. looking at crab per tank guidelines a 30 gal can hold 8 medium crabs. pumpkincrab wants to put 6 in a 29 gallon. and only 2 are close to being mediums.
correct me if i’m wrong but i think they will be fine for now with 29 gallons

Re: Is it a Hermit crab exoskeletons or is it dead

Well I'm pretty sure Sunshine is dead being that she is starting to smell. Thanks for your help. I think she left her shell and couldn't find another one quick enough. Luckily we still have 8 other crabs and they are doing awesome for the past year. as stated, crabs leave their shells when they are...

Re: Where to find shells (opening apx. 1-1/2" to 1-3/4")

i ordered from CrabbyKateCrabShack once before and my shells came the wrong size (not a huge difference but enough that they were tooo big) and they had big chips in the openings.

Re: Where to find shells (opening apx. 1-1/2" to 1-3/4")

SimplySeashellsDecor on Etsy is absolute favorite place to get shells. They are always a great price! She does not have any sizes that you listed, though. i have previously bought shells around 1 3/8 from her which i know is smaller than your asking for. it wouldn’t hurt to ask and see if she will h...

Re: Tank capacity

http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=836451#p836451 according to JMTs crabs per tank guidelines you can fit 5 large crabs alone in a 40 gal. so based off of this you are not over capacity. if it were my tank tho i would leave it as is in case i needed to rescue smaller crab or some...

Re: Glass Top?

Um, one more question I came across: Doesn't a glass lid make it so that the hermit crabs can't breathe? they will be perfectly fine especially when you have the lid open to do things like with food and water (or spraying if you do that) when u have to lid open it will kinda like circulate the air ...

Re: Please post pics! :)

i know right i love crabbycaseys tank! but in my opinion i think greenery is the secret to making a tank i personally love the natural aspects of crabitats so my favorite things/ my must haves are lots of greenery, some wood (i found some woods mold more easily than others), and some climbing nets (...

Re: Humidity Keeps Dropping

Moss pit could def help, but I also noticed you said you have 3/4 of top covered with plastic wrap and have a heat lamp...I’m assuming that’s why you have 1/4 left open. Having that open part and a heat lamp could easily be the reason you’re losing humidity. Maybe consider fully wrapping it in plas...
