Re: how often you rotate in food?

I don't change food daily either, there's still so much that they can eat, and they normally will go back for more.

Re: tank vs tote??

I have a large tote for my isopods and would love if it were capable of housing hermit crabs. They are great for others that cannot afford or fit a glass tank into their living space. You most likely would lose a lot of climbing space, unless you were to find a tall tote. Most totes that are taller,...

Re: My 40B setup

I only don't like that 55's don't have the width that I really want.
40 breeders are great, but I don't like the height, so I got a 55 for that.

Thanks, I really wanted to know for sure.
I do not plan on any more crabs, I actually wanted to get rid of a couple.

Re: Is my tank too crowded?

Okay, that’s wonderful news :)
I had thirteen inches, but it won’t stop settling, so now I have nine.
I will increase it a lot more once my molters come up.

Re: Is my tank too crowded?

We recommend a minimum 75 gallon tank for jumbos and 15 gallons per jumbo. 75's are the smallest tanks that have an 18 inch width afaik. I've had a dozen PP's in a 55 before with no issue.

Okay, well I was wrong about the gallon size, but I remember being told by another member that a 75 was the minimum.
I still don't meet the width minimum of 18 inches.

heyitseggs2 wrote:You're fine. The jumbo needs ten gallons, and then the other eight need five each, so the minimum tank size you need is 50. So you even have room to spare. Thanks for checking though!
If I remember correctly, jumbos need at least a 75 gallon tank, being 18 inches deep.

How many gallons is your tank? The HCA recommends 5 gallons per crab and 10 gallons per jumbo crab.
55 gallons:)

Re: Question about using net.

I never double layer mine.
One of my crabs did get his leg segment caught in one of the strings, so I unhooked it from his leg and was fine :)

Is my tank too crowded?

I have been thinking, maybe my tank is too crowded. It’s currently housing seven PPs, and two Es which I thought was a bit much. I see minimal space when all of my crabs come out, they could use some room. So, this has me thinking, maybe I need to adopt out a couple of my PPs to a different home. I ...

Re: NEW crabs

Just so you know...some of that is what I recommend, not the HCA. It is my opinion that Es do much better with two protein choices a day. All crabs need calcium at all times. :) I personally give my crabs several choices for calcium. Ecuadorian crabs do not do well with overcrowding. Purple pincher...
