Re: New tank and needs to be cleaned

So I tried lemon, a razor blade, and CLR nothing worked. Oh well with the substrate being at least 8" it will come up to the calcium line.

Re: New tank and needs to be cleaned

Cool thank you! I cant wait to get this tank set up. I have a 10gal with 2 crabs and an Iso tank with a crab that lost most its legs in January and is ready to be put back in with the others.

New tank and needs to be cleaned

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

The longer you can keep him isolated in good conditions, the better he will do long term. He needs to load up on food and have an undisturbed molt in order to have the best chance of long term survival. He isn't out of the woods yet! Okay thank you! I was holding him today and he is fast! When I fi...

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

I replied GB for GotButterflies Update. So yesterday I replaced the main tank cause it cracked along the bottom. I've read the care guide and everything I thought I was doing right was wrong. I used play sand and coconut fibers prob 4-2 since I have trouble with humidity. I used instant ocean on th...

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

I replied GB for GotButterflies So sorry to hear about this. :( It sounds like a shell fight to me, but I may be wrong. Was your crab buried in the substrate when you changed it? He could have been molting. I can't help much, but I know other crabbers have fed their injured crabs with a Q-tip (with...

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

I replied GB for GotButterflies 1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Eco earth and half sand and about 3". It was very dry so that's why I changed it and read I should mix in the sand and eco earth together. Moon: Your substrate is a little low. The HCA recommends no l...

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

Okay. Then your crab still has its exoskeleton, but has lost all its limbs. Sent from my LGMS550 using Tapatalk He was out of a shell for a while and I tried to coax him in a shell and nothing on him was hard. She shrunk in size so much he doesn't have any strength to walk in the smallest shell I c...

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

Your crab has no exoskeleton? Did it surface molt and leave an empty hollow "body" that looks just like the crab? Or did it drop all it's limbs? Sent from my LGMS550 using Tapatalk No there was a crab fight and his pieces were everywhere. All his claws except a little one and most his front legs I ...
