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

Totally! I’m anxious to see how Dumbo ends up doing- Idk if you’ve seen my shell finding.... emergency? Yeah, kind of an emergency. But the poor guy- there’s no WAY he’s molted in who knows how long while he couldn’t even pull back into the shell at all... heartbreaking once you know better! Also, r...

Re: Almost a crabber!

There is a TON of info on the web. Tons. Some good, some less than good, some totally wrong of course! This site is- honestly- the only place you will need to go. They’ve been crabbing for a collective 100s of years, and the only successful captive breedings have happened by members on here. If it i...

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

Yay- congrats! That’s one of my favorite parts- seeing what shells they pick! So far Dave is the only one, and Pat is still in an icky painted shell, bc he won’t stay out long enough to look for anything else! Anyway- Best of luck with these little dudes- as they said, they may not live a long lifes...

Re: Welcome the new Crew!!

And, of course, fashionista Dave is the first one to give one a go! He is a shell lover for sure! He actually fits a little better in this one even tho it is still a touch in the large side, but he seems to like them that way. Anyway, without further ado- here’s Dave! He loves his people. (Yeah, lot...

Re: Crabby genius?

I saw that pic a couple days ago- so funny! I’m sure Calypso was thinking up a way to skip through there- “hmm.... now for the rest of me...” ha! Love it.

Re: Welcome the new Crew!!

Now, this is a load of shells! Lol They were so sweet, and she threw in the pink murex in place of shipping costs- so sweet of them! They’re all so pretty I had to share... I can’t wait to see how much happier Dumbo is once he’s got a big shell... he is kinda grumpy crab but I don’t blame him. It’s...

Welcome the new Crew!!

I’m so excited for him. I never did snap a pic of how enormous he was for the shell he started in. He’s got to be one tough crag to have made it this long in those conditions. I do worry about the damage showing up in the future. I honestly won’t feel great about him until a couple of months. Just t...

So a big big thank you to them, and to motōrcrab for the recommendation. ( I think it was you!) So whi...

Crab in need of a home - Akron, OH

I’m in Virginia, but honestly it wouldn’t be that hard to meet halfway- not for me, but I like to road trip. And I’m good at it! It says we are roughly 5.5 hours apart zip to zip. I don’t mind driving 3-4 hours, (I do mean one way, for 6-8 total) I’m not sure what you are able or willing to do? I am...

Re: Store-bought driftwood

Thank you Wodesorel! I had thought along the same lines but hadn’t had the fully formed thought re: kosher salt, and maybe never would’ve thought to ask. Good to know- anything that can save me a bit of money, I like!

I was curious as well, if for no other reason than simply curiosity’s sake! Anybody else know more?

Re: New 20 Gallon Tall Build With Egg Crate (in process)

I don't have a water drip anywhere. Only if I over mist the moss pit. Hermits love wheels! I viewed my crabby cams recorded video and saw some guys easily spend 12 hours just walking in the wheel with out getting out! Oh my gosh! That’s amazing! I just added one in my 10, I had already decided the ...

So pretty! I didn’t even know keeping crayfish as pets was a ‘thing’ til I landed on here! But I think they’re beautiful, and I love learning more about them and seeing the pics. Thanks! [emoji16]

Re: What should I do?

You can still start adding humidity and moisture to help them out I would think- and the crabs have, unfortunately, also been in similar conditions at PetSmart- unfortunately they don’t do their own homework as well as they should either. You came to the right place- for now I wouldn’t worry terribl...

Re: 10 gal crab tank

Yep- what they said! Always great deals on LetGo in my area, hopefully yours will be the same! Good luck, I bet you’ll find a steal someplace. [emoji6]

Also, I would be interested to know/see how the tank topper bit works with the crabbies! Thanks!!
