Re: Tank/ rescued hermit

Basically, that’s awesome! [emoji1303][emoji1303] Sounds like you’re on the right track. I’m pretty new here myself, but these boards are an absolute wealth of knowledge!!! I love it.

Re: Color Preference

How odd! Mine don’t touch strawberries either come to think of it, although I know they’d like them. Maybe some fresh green ones or pink ones from my (organic) patch in the spring. That’s a bummer bc I was excited to be able to share those and my blueberries with the crabbies! Guess we are down to j...

Re: Dishes

I also use a dish similar to the ReptiRock one that Wode posted. And I have about 5 or 6 of these little prep bowls in varying sizes, I push them down into the sub so the crabs don't tip them over. They are shallow enough that I don't need to worry about the crabs not being able to get in and out. ...

Re: Dishes

I’ve started using these, and my little guys don’t seem to have any trouble; I added the craft mesh for grip on one side. They are glass mason storage... glasses. Lol. They come in a set of 6 I think, and there are one of each respective size shown but in a square, a circle, and a rectangle version....

Re: Not eating

Awwww. It makes you wonder how much of the pecking order is forced and how much is them just giving in to their ‘superiors’ or ‘elders’.... well I’m glad he’s found it and will eat... as long as he’s comfortable? You know what I’m sayin tho. It’s just so fun to watch them all. Thanks for the update....

What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Ah! I love it! So many awesome ideas. I never considered cooking things specifically for them. Yes, that sounds a bit naive I suppose, but still- I didn’t. Mind. Blown. So many amazing ideas, what a great thread- I have a fairly big variety of dried and freeze dried and plenty of the ‘normal’ fresh ...

Re: Molting/hibernating

I read the same info regarding that, BUT the key was that it was triggered by a low temp and it was a forced sort of thing. From all I’ve read, if no smell, they’ll basically come up when they’re up. I know I’m new so you don’t have to listen to me, but it sounds to me like they’re just taking their...

Re: Hoarding Food!

Yeah, I've tossed shrimp tails to my crabs a few times and they loved them. First time I set them out, I didn't even get the tank lid close before my smallest guy started to steal one away. I dont give shrimp tails that often as the crabs do love to secret them away which leaves me with more mold a...

Re: Shell fight???

Wow- great stuff to know and learn about the straws! I would love to eventually have some straws, but I know we are nowhere near ready for them. I understand they are quite a bit more high maintenance, and from this discussion and what you’re all saying? Yes, definitely high maintenance, all around ...

Re: Not eating

Since I have cameras in my tanks I see if my crabs are eating. In one tank it seems like the 2 crabs that are up aren't eating. They walk around, back and forth, use the wheel but walk past the food dish. Now in my other tank, I recently added 2 small crabs. One I think buried. The other one has be...

Re: Fight Aftermath

Oh no! I don’t have any advice but hope your lil guy recovers well. Sounds like you’ve got it well in hand, lucky for the new guy! I hope that’s the last you have to worry about that, and he recovers and grows them back successfully ASAP!

should I buy my 7yo a hermit crab?

I have two boys, who are now 10 & 13. They love learning about the crabs with me, but I’m not sure at age 7 if they wouldn’t have lost interest a lot faster. Part of the interest depends on the crab too, since some are more naturally curious and explorative and brave lol. Dave is super friendly and ...

Re: 4 smaller rescued PPs, Jersey Shore, NJ

Hi! It might take some figuring out, and maybe an assist from someone else to transport, although I am willing to drive up to 4 hours or so, more if absolutely necc. I would be interested in at least 2, I have a 10 gallon, with two small-med PPs. I don’t want to overcrowd of course; I’d take them al...
