Re: Is my crab dead?

So sorry... it's unfortunate that these things happen. Although this one didn't make it at least the rest of them went to someone who knows the proper care.

Re: About to dig up SIX CRABS

Sounds scary... good luck and best wishes. Why do you have to dig? Is there a bacterial bloom or flood?

Re: "205 Gallon" Custom Build

It's amazing! I wish I had the room and craftiness for that kind of that setup, I'm limited to a ten or twenty gallon.

Re: Red Legs?

He is soo cute! Hermit crabs can change colors when they molt so he’s probably fine. I’m really not sure but I had to tell you that he is soo cute!

Re: Red Legs?

The leg that rests on top of the claw when closed up is called the sheild leg. It's almost always a different color than the other three in all species. Newly regrown legs will often come in bright red in Purple Pinchers. It can take two or more molts before it blends back in to the others. Cool! I...

Re: Possible new hermit crab accessory??

Looks to me like crabby paradise! If you're concerned about their legs getting stuck I would put up some coco-mat over the holes. Maybe that would help. Otherwise looks like they'd have a lot of fun on it!

Re: Red Legs?

I noticed recently one of mine had one leg a really bright orange. Not sure why that happens, but hopefully just part of the crazy mysterious molting process! Sent from my XT1635-01 using Tapatalk Yeah, I was wondering if it had anything to do with the fact that carrots are a main part of their die...

Re: My First Post!

Welcome! Great set up. I showed the Rasberry PI to my husband who is 1 semester away from getting his Electrical Engineering degree. He knew exactly what it was and has one laying around somewhere. Lol. Do your crabs nibble on or pinch the sensors in the tank? No, the sensor is hanging from the lid...

Hoarding Food!

I'm not sure if any of your crabs do this, but it's really weird. I put a piece of shrimp in the tat for the crabs to eat, and soon after, it was gone. We checked the photographic evidence and saw that Friday had dragged the shrimp into her cocohut! I was worried that it would stink up the tat but i...

Red Legs?

So my crab Jarvis came up recently from his second molt with me, and we were doing a water change and decided to take some pictures. I saw that one of Jarvis' legs is a much brighter red color than the rest of his legs, which are all purple and/or brown! I think it looks cute and makes him look uniq...

Florida Shells and Gifts

I looked around the review section a few times and realized that nobody reviewed Florida Shells and Gifts (And if they did, I missed it). I got a pack of thirty shells off of Amazon from them and they came quickly and unbroken. They even sent me an extra shell! Sadly, most of them turned out to be W...

My First Post!

Hello everybody! This is my first post here and I'm very happy to be joining the HCA. I've been reading on this forum for over a year, and got my crabs a little over four months ago. I thought this would be a good time to join because my crab Jarvis recently came up from his second molt with me and ...
