Re: New Kid on the Block

It's amazing how much variety one species can really have. I'm half tempted to do a color experiment with my straws. I saw pictures of some on IG that are a very dark blue almost black but their joints are still red. I know diet has a lot to do with their colors. I'm wondering if I will notice a ch...

Blueberry, Indo & PP crabs

I have an Indo living with two other PPs, and prior to my adopting them also lived with some straws and several other PPs. So they can do fine, given the right conditions, as others have said. I have a straw with 2 tiny PPs in one tank, and I also have Es and PPs together in another tank (all to be ...

Re: Almond Leaves......?

Mine too- yummy! They like the sea grape leaves to move around I think, but reserve them as a last resort for munching. They choose the oak and maple, magnolia and bee balm, and more- they’re a bit spoiled...

Re: Question about mating

I have 10 crabs and most are female I think... i’m just wondering will they end up mating at some point? I’m in no way ready to take on something like that. I read that the temp & humidity has to be right & luck. My humidity is about 80% and 77degrees in temperature. If my crabs were to possibly ma...

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

I’m gonna go with possible blueberries for all for my guess- Wow! I’m so jealous- my son and I have been wanting to find some for a long while now. So I have stared at a lot of pics of them lol. Sooooo cool. Best of luck to you and the new little ones, please keep us posted as they continue to molt/...

Re: Websites with Good Shells [emoji3] Concerns about my lid!!

You won’t want to use a towel or blanket without first covering the screen in some type of plastic, or it will absorb the moisture and counteract the effect you are going for. I personally used press n seal on my screen too, with two single pane mirrors upside down on that to hold in heat. (I just h...

Re: 38 crabs. What size tank?

Oh wow- I was going to ask the same thing! That’s incredible to take on that many- good for you! I hope you can work out where everyone goes; I’m no help, I have 20 crabs and can’t decide how to ultimately split them up in the new tank/s!! But I’m glad to see that guide posted again right before I a...

Re: All My Isopod Species [PICTURE HEAVY]

Those are sooo cool! I think my favorite you called ‘little sea?’ Those are so so pretty! Would those be considered ‘crab safe?’ Sorry, I know you’re getting a lot of those ?s! If/when you get to the point of being able to breed/sell/share, you’ll have an awesome selection to choose from. [emoji39] ...

Re: New Hermit Species in the 75 Gallon and Update

So awesome! I am also getting more and more intrigued by the aquatic guys! There are just so many varieties and they are so cool looking with their long thin limbs (mostly!) That is a future interest though for me! I think they’re all beautiful! Thanks for sharing, and if you have a link or can post...

Re: Not molting, evacuated shell, now back in shell but still acting funky

Pretty much exactly what was just said is what I would also say. I have some concerns with the bedding also, but I don’t know enough about that type to say much yet. I would also like to add that crabs love and need variety in their diet, just like we do but even more critical in some areas. I belie...
