Re: The Best Number of Hermit Crabs to Have?

Well, we are up to 6 now... it was 1 more than my plan, but as I said, the poor guy was literally waving around like dumbo’s ears popping out! I’m making light of it but it was so heartbreaking to see I had to get him too. I don’t know how the stress of all of that will affect him/her long term eith...

Re: Welcome the new Crew!!

Mmmm. Totally just spent about $50. But really, I gotta say, compared to anywhere else her prices are certainly fair. So I can’t wait til they arrive. Literally I may not.... [emoji854]

Re: Welcome the new Crew!!

Thank you for sharing. I am new enough at all this, and as I say, I didn’t PLAN on bringing anyone home that big if I could help it. But I couldn’t help it because I had to help him!! I bet everyone else passed him over for the same reason- and were afraid of the bigger pinchers too. But yes, unexpe...

So, real quick, is this most likely the size I’m looking for?

Welcome the new Crew!!

I’m only about an hour 1/2 from there, (pigeon forge area) so.... it may be best for Dumbo if I bomb down there tomorrow... I guess I need to determine exactly where I’d be going. But, either way, I would think at least ONE of the stores down there would cater to that sort of thing. Oh and yes he wa...

Welcome the new Crew!!

Well.... my patience ran out and so did my cabin fever. I went and added 4 to our crab family today! We are all so happy about them too. Even if we didn’t get to adopt, we still are giving these guys a good loving home. Ok so we have only named one so far; Dumbo is the Jumbo, when compared to the ot...

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

Hi angel bear-I don’t have an answer for you, but I know I bought the 50lb playsand for like $4.—? Not much, and I could’ve gotten a 25lb but figured I can always use a lil extra!! Mine already had quite a bit of eco earth in it, it’s mixed more like 2/5, or even closer to 3/5 with the playsand, and...

Loves the Hygrometer?

Ha- Dave finally has a ‘real’ friend to play with again- yay! Pat has been under for at least a week, by all appearances anyway. He’s a shy and quiet type. I’m hoping as he gets bigger and more comfortable in general he won’t stay hidden ‘quite’ as much. Anyway- Dave keeps following him around. Very...

Re: 3 crabs down under

I’ll pop on to say that it sounds absolutely normal. Welcome! We never know quite what our little friends have gone through to make it all the way to us. Temp changes, jostling, food concerns, being packed together etc etc .... point bing, there is something called PPS, post-purchase syndrome. I don...

Re: which AcuRite model?

Sweet- thanks for sharing, I was kinda curious too. I have one, as we know, but I’d like to get an all in one unit like that too. Thanks!

Re: Artemis, Day 14 carrying eggs

They’re all soooo stinking cute!! Super big congrats!! Maybe someday we will get to that level here in our home, but that won’t be anytime soon! Please when the time comes, I want to be in line for one of those sweet little babies too! (Or two.[emoji6]) I just ordered a dish from you, Mary, can’t wa...

Wow it turned out so awesome! Very creative and has me looking forward to my next iteration. [emoji16] If I was a crab I’d totally wanna live there too. Nice work!

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

I’m wondering why bombing down is the best way to get in that pool... [emoji848][emoji2957] Too funny, must just be keeping themselves entertained... Crabs gotta have fun! I have GOT to get me a camera. Can’t wait.

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

Oooooh I LOVE that idea with the pebbles. I have the perfect type of glass pebbles to use- they’ll love it. Yay! Thanks. [emoji16] They are SO clumsy sometimes! I think that’s the biggest part of their charm... well, that and their buggy eyes and waving multiple antennae. I actually saw the containe...
