Re: Regarding post-molting

Do the antennas of a hermit crab grow back without moulting?

Cholla sleeping bed!

One of my crab, Ellen, loves to sleep in this cholla wood. He been doing for days. Then Hearty decided to have a sleep over but outside since it's not big enough for two haha. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180811/0ff112d9fd219c433ebb14c09a9b1d3c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180811/a97...

Re: How long is too long?

I believe I read one of the posts on here stated that jumbo crabs can stay down burrowing for over 10 months or so. But maybe someone with large crabs and more experience can tell you more in details.

Also, if there are no bad smell, they should be ok. :crabbigsmile:

Re: Chirping

When I first have the crabs, they were usually chirping at night for many consecutive days then they stopped. Not sure when they would do it again. There was another event when I was misting the tank and hit one of the crabs with the mist and he chirped too like "hey, stop it" :hlol:

Re: Regarding post-molting

Sebastian's first molt gave him lots of little hairs on his legs and his color was more adamant. Rajah's color was darker and much bolder, and he grew quite a bit. Both of them were shy and skittish before, and after they explore more and eat A LOT more. Both Ellen and Hearty are very hair and with...

Re: Whats the difference between a Ruggie and an Ecudorian?

Ruggies are also not available in the United States anymore... They are, but they come in randomly in shipments to smaller mom & pop shops, usually through the fish distributors. You cannot request them. That's how I got mine two years ago, and I missed out on the other five she came in with! Edite...

Re: New Look After Minor Cleanup

Your tank looks pretty! However considering that you have an E, I highly recommend the following- bump your substrate up to a minimum of 10”-12” depth. Feed a wide variety of proteins. I recommend 2 a day. I recommend a wide variety of calcium choices also. I would recommend you take the two really...

Re: White stuff hanging from 2nd store

Grab a big plastic container, like a butter bowl, and flip it upside down. Cut a hole for a door and maybe cover it with rocks or organic jute twine? If you do rocks, try aquarium safe silicone to attach them. I saw it on an old post here and it was a great hide plus it created a second level for t...

Re: What are common ways to make a second level?

I made a wooden table and my crabs climb on it to hang out and eating as I put my food dish there. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180801/84fc060a1ca27fc2911336d49ddebe01.jpg Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk How did you make that table? 5 PPs: Koa, Moja, Siam, Chella, and Ozark.

Re: White stuff hanging from 2nd store

Plywood is made with a lot of glues and chemicals. The best possible outcome is that this is mold, otherwise it could be those chemicals leaching out in the heat and humidity. It is not recommended for use in a crab tank unless it has been completely sealed in a two part epoxy of some sort! To be s...

Re: White stuff hanging from 2nd store

What type of wood is it? It’s most likely because the wood isn’t treated or sealed. The molt itself is harmless to the crabs, but can cause problems in humans that have asthma or that get bad allergic reactions. You can remove the piece of wood, and soak it in saltwater and airdry, otherwise, it’s ...

White stuff hanging from 2nd store

I just notice some sort of white fungi/ bacteria hanging down from the under of the wooden 2nd floor that I built for the crabs. I wonder if those are any harmful to the crabs. The other day I saw a little bug from their food dish and thinking it was just a food mite but then I saw another same kind...
