Re: Large crab attacked but other crab. Twice over shell

I found the qtips to work better than dishes in her case, as the only moving parts that could lift were her mouth. For powders I would roll it in honey or babyfood first, then roll it in the dry like sprinkles. Always kept proteins, honey and coconut as those allow for a lot of energy and calories ...

Re: Large crab attacked but other crab. Twice over shell

Keeping you updated. Now that I'm sure of what to do. He just got watered (no pics ) I will later. He seems to enjoy salt water dish more than freshwater. But I leave him in both for 5 min each. He just enjoyed his food mash when he's finished he turns himself around I have pics of that below https:...

Re: Large crab attacked but other crab. Twice over shell

I would leave her in for 5 or 10 minutes and walk out of the room to do something else. She was really jumpy around me though so I couldn't watch her! And just like a 1/8 to a 1/4 inch of water, just enough for her to dip mouthparts and scoot around the cup, not enough to spill into her shell openi...

Re: Large crab attacked but other crab. Twice over shell

Make sure he can eat a LOT - I like honey, insects, shrimp and coconut for these situations - give him access to water at least daily (I did three times a day, first salt than fresh, it also allowed for some exercise and kept her clean), and he should grow in gel legs in a month or so and then molt...

Re: Large crab attacked but other crab. Twice over shell

I’m really sorry to hear what has happened to your poor crabbie. I have had past experience with shell fights - one of my molters came up and one of my other crabs took the opportunity to steal his shell which left him naked and traumatised. I isolated him and offered him food and water, but he kep...

Re: Molting cave window

I am not going to post a pic of my tank. There was a lot of criticism over the size of it and the type of sub I was using when I first posted it to another group's Facebook page a couple of years ago. But when I said he did not end up staying there, I meant the crab tunneled away. I'm not new to ha...

Re: Molting cave window

Well, I think he was just tunneling around because he did not end up staying there. They rarely molt against the tank glass ever . although it might have happened to others. In a rare case When they actually molt you won't even know where they are. up against glass they are just hanging out and dig...
