Am I crazy?

So. I got this really large tank on LetGo for cheap. Very cheap. It is rated as an aquarium, so I know it’s tough enough to hold what I need. I have a million ideas right now, and I want opinions!!! I cannot decide if I want to leave it as a tall, or if we should customize it, lay it on its side, an...

Re: Adopted 2 HC that Have Lived in Conditions Opposite of Good for over a Year, and they seem fine. How Can that Be?

That’s a great way of looking at- and explaining- things. Thanks! That is a straightforward way I can talk with the kiddos about it. I do HOPE all 6 of mine make it for many years, but as you say, the luck of the draw and law of averages says I may well not. I know, basically, how all my crabs were ...

Re: Wooden dowels for legs to 2nd level safe?

Oooh I like the sound of that! I’d also love to see a picture if you can get that sorted. I use the app, and pics are super easy with it, assuming they’re on my phone. Hopefully someone else can walk you thru the process on the computer, cause I’m really interested in how you did that- it sounds awe...

Re: Almost a crabber!

Too true, especially anyplace internet! I did actually have the some of- the first time thru and didn’t catch my own deletion during editing. Whoops! I meant what I said tho, that is way too much work to take away from anyone’s successes. No worries, I’m one that would prefer someone (or multiple so...

Almost a crabber!

Fair enough! I didn’t mean to exclude anyone, and I am by no means an expert. [emoji6] (I had actually meant to add the ‘some of’ in front of that statement, so thank you for pointing that out. I do know the breeding takes so so much time and effort, I definitely don’t mean to take away from anyone ...

Wooden dowels for legs to 2nd level safe?

I agree, I like trying to use as much natural as possible, and to try to emulate their environment as closely as possible too. I will preface this with saying I cannot guarantee 100% any of the products I listed on the post shared below. However, I am continuing to read up on them in regards to crab...

Upgrading to a more suitable home. My first real scapeing attempt.

I love the name! We actually had a cat when I was growing up named Monkey. However, he was named so bc he was a polydactyl cat, and had extra toes on all four feet! Very cute! Love when they’re popping out of their shells like that to say hi, I think they just look so darn funny!! Dave is by far the...

Re: Slate that Carol used for Jonathan, Details? What is this Process?

She definitely seems like a cool lady, and I am definitely grateful that there is someone like her that took the time and love to figure out better what they needed.

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

Oh that’s wonderful! Thank you for letting me know, I will head over that way soon! I only had a few minutes the other day, so I didn’t get to look but for a minute! How fun is that, having adoption days? Love it. I can’t blame you one little bit wanting (and needing!) to screen and not ship- you’ve...

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

You guys crack me up. :hlol: It is SO hard to keep track of them all. Started a new full count today and we're up to 195 as I tucked them all in tonight. Found them congregating in big groups, all snuggled together happily. They seem to be really companionable little creatures, thankfully. I have b...

Re: Slate that Carol used for Jonathan, Details? What is this Process?

And how did she know they where ready to stay put and molt? Yes! That made me wonder as well, especially when they were younger; I have heard several say that after an extended time having a certain crab, you recognize their ‘molting cues’ but the early days? Yeah, how did she sort that one out? Sh...

Re: Tunnel collapses

Sweet. Yes, it’s just that top bit that is a little more exposed. Thanks- that totally answers the question for me at least, and I feel a bit better now. Since there is a visible tunnel that goes at least couple inches down and back, I’d guess I’m ok, but a little spritzing is in order! [emoji16] Se...
