Lost a leg!

So one of my PP came up from a molt a few weeks ago and now I found a leg in their water dish. Should I separate him from the main tank?

I've been worried since I bought 2 new E's and read that they like to find molters and eat them so I've been smelling the tank daily. It was stuart's first time molting since January when I got them. I'm so happy the...

I have been trying to adopt crabs for months but Colorado doesn't seem to be a popular place to find unwanted crabs. So I took my son to petsmart first and there were no gauges and moldy food and I saw no active crabs. So we went to petco they had the temp and humidity correct. And probably like 10 ...

Re: Upgrade!

I used 3m hooks to attach my burlap net to a glass fish bowl. The were the really small ones I got for hanging Christmas lights in the house. I'm planning on using them to hang the climbing wall on the back too.

Re: White stuff in my tank. What is it???

Sounds like maybe spider mites. They are really tiny red spiders

Re: Crab fight and crab out of his shell!!

Update: Bob is doing just fine! We upgraded to a 60 gal tank. And he has been out of iso for over 2 weeks now and is loving all the room he has and being back with the other crabs. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180522/b3d85b334f29c114426d8c882ba2e1f3.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018052...

Live plants in crabitat?

So I was wondering if anyone grows live plants in their tank? And if they do what do the crabs like the best. I was at a nursery and almost bought something and couldn't find it on the safe/unsafe list. I did get a little terro cotta pot and want to plant some seeds in coconut fiber and see if it wi...

Re: New tank and needs to be cleaned

Thanks!! I'm having a hard time getting the thermometer to stick. I've tried 3m strips and super strong velcro. Right now it's just sitting on top of the humid hideout.
