I hope so. I just didn’t think it was natural or normal for two molters to come up above ground prematurely :(

Re: Another Molter Gone...

The others are perfectly fine, just for some reason molters keep appearing above ground before they are finished

Another Molter Gone...

Yep, again.. Another molter has been found above ground, dead. Conditions have been the same and the other guys are doing great, happy and healthy. I'm sure this guy is Chella.. I'm not sure why molters are appearing above ground before they are finished molting. I'm doing everything I can to keep m...

Sand Dollar Bits

Are Sand Dollars in any way useful nutrition wise for the crabs? I have some and I'm unsure if it's safe to use.

Re: Yes, good news for once!

Hooray! My guys have been under for a couple months, and I'll be returning home Sunday with new shells for my big guys, including him. Hopefully they'll all be up when I return so I can tell which crab I'm missing.
(I apologize if the last bit was sad.)

Re: Waiting for Friends to come back from molt

It depends on how large your tank is to tell if you can add another crab in or not. My guys are often times alone for a period of time while the others are down, and they're usually fine.

Re: Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

Cute crabby! As for the shells, boil them and soak/dip them in salt water before adding them to your tank. Personally, I don't trust what people say, but there is still the shipping and dust, among whatever else the shells may have collected before you bought them. I take no chances when it comes t...

Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

I am currently vacationing and I picked up some turbos and a cute little hermit crab figurine. The shop claims there are no harsh chemicals used in the process of polishing them. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190319/2a62219ba12108ca8bc8d9b2a75bbeee.jpg 5 PPs: Koa, Moja, Siam, Chella, and Ozark

I'd say it's some kind of insulation or heat pad. I have heat insulation tape around the sides of my tank

Re: First Time buying new

Naples, Florida Shells and Gifts, and Nautical Crush Trading have shells in bulk. I've also gotten some from craft stores and I got my gold mouth turbos from a vacation we took the past summer. We went to a cave and in the gift shop were gold mouth turbos and delphinium shells that my baby crab, Sia...

Re: Harry changed shells again!

When I got Harry he was in a tiny shell. Soon later he changed into a shell twice the size of his original one. He has changed a billion times since then but then he settled on his favorite green turbo. Since Hagrid sadly died two weeks ago I put in his old shell today. Harry changed into it half a...
