Re: Large Tank Topper

I'm going to do mini tests of foam with grout, foam with titebond, and foam with both to see which works best.

Chirping?

I have 4 E's in a 40 gallon. They all have plenty of room and hiding spaces to be alone if they want to, so I don't think this is a crowding issue. Lately my two males have been chirping at each other. They walk right up to each other and interact and then chirp angrily. I can't tell if Orion is try...

Re: 30 G Tank - First Build

Beautiful tank! I love the names of your cat and your crabs. :D
I'm so glad they got a good home with you.

Hermit Crab Shell Preferences Survey :)

I spent some time compiling a list of shells and created a survey to help collect data on which kind of crabs choose which kind of shells. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfW4mQt0xg5BHbZL9iv6lvEbISblwtwE1t-yM6SgARcqd8dVg/viewform?usp=sf_link Feedback would be much appreciated! It was just a...

Re: A shell for Gamma and some stranger shells

The big shell looks like a muffin snail shell, they're really beautiful, I think. I ordered a few not knowing how big they would be! My little E's can fit inside the opening with their current shells on :shock:
But I'm glad your crab is enjoying his or her new home!

I could use this to adhere them, so they'd be easily replaceable if they were shredded.

Re: Large Tank Topper

Okie dokie. Just checking. I'm also a fish nerd, I have numerous tanks and have never had issues with them holding or supporting things, but I wasn't sure how they'd stand up to this application. So it looks like I have access to tools and help with building this if I'm able to scrounge up the money...

Re: Room for more hermit crabs?

Thanks. I think I'll hold off, then. I know E's can be territorial, so I don't want to risk crowding them. If at some point in the future I'm able to upgrade or get another tank, I'll look into getting some PP's. I saw an 180 gallon tank for sale, with a huge discount due to small chip making it una...

Room for more hermit crabs?

I have a 40 gallon breeder with 4 E's. I've never had PP's, but there are always tons of them up for adoption near me. I'm wondering, am I maxed out at my 4 E's (I thought I was), or do I have room for more crabs (E's or PP's)? I don't want to crowd them. I can't upgrade the tank currently, but I ma...

Re: E's and Shell Sizes

Mine are all in 1" shells except for the littlest one. I have some shells that are closer to 2", so I'm not sure if they'll even get big to use them.

E's and Shell Sizes

I got some beautiful shells from Naples that I'm very pleased with. However, some seem rather large for my E's. What is the biggest shell you've seen your E wear? For that matter, how big do E's really get? I've heard golf ball sized...

Re: Large Tank Topper

Yea. I'm thinking maybe 1/4" inch. I've been looking for decently priced cell cast acrylic and it's ridiculous how much it is in some places. I managed to find some online for a good price, though shipping might be expensive. I've considered buying a used acrylic tank off Craigslist and just cutting...
