Re: German cockroach infestation

Fasting them for a few days is probably your best bet. They can pick at the moss, leaf litter, or climbing branches. The roaches can also be attracted to water sources.

Re: Settling

I have never worried about it. As long as it is the correct consistence. I have always just added them back in when I was done. Never had any trouble. I didn't even know that was a thing or a concern. Now you have me second guessing myself lol.

Re: Painted Shell is Chipped

Crabs are very picky. I read someplace that when they are looking at shells they are inspecting the inside so be sure it will suit them. When they roll the shell around they are determining the weight. So they are looking for a perfect balance between size and weight that will be best for them. I'm...

Re: OUT of shell and missing limbs!!

Could it have been a fight over a shell?

Re: Enrichment Toy?

I do something simmiliar. I place each of their foods in clean bottle caps and scatter them different places around the tank so they have to "hunt" them. I also tend to chamge the minor non attatched decor every 3 or 4 months to keep them active

My crabs are currently loving their new tank, and enjoying finding out where they like to hide/sleep. So far Little P has claimed the moss pit as his domain during his day time rest. Shy Guy likes to hide on top/behind one of the rocks I have stacked to make a natural cave. And Monkey has claimed th...
