Re: Hands-off or hands-on? I'd like to bring a thought to the table

I used to handle mine at first but then when I heard about how they are better hand off, I stopped :-/ not sure how they feel about it. How can you tell? They hide in their shell anytime I go to change their food, that tells me they are scared of me, but when I used to handle them...I would hold the...

Re: Discoloration

Ok yeah that makes sense that their colors change because I’ve never noticed this before lol and if it’s diet related they obviously eat the same thing and I’ve changed the diet around I give them a variety so definitely feel better that I don’t need to be too concerned Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

Discoloration

This might be a silly question and it may just be that I haven’t noticed this, but I realized that my crabs both seem to have sort of a faded area of their claws. Is this ok? I want to make sure it’s not a sign of bad health of anything like that. They are my two oldest and my first hermits I’ve eve...

Re: UTH my hermit crabs are cold!!!

Where do you keep the UTH? I would keep it at the back of the aquarium and I personally have two. A large one that covers most of the back and one on the side of the tank as well. Also I provide natural lighting. I am honestly unsure what’s best there :-/ maybe someone with more experience may have ...

Re: UTH my hermit crabs are cold!!!

What is your gauge reading? I struggled keeping my crabs warm and humid and finally bought a large UTH that almost covered the entire back of the aquarium. Then I started using Saran Wrap on top and ever since my heat and humidity has been perfect. What are you covering the tank with? Sent from my i...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

Thanks. Yeah I guess I’ve been super worried about adding too much dechlorinator or it not cleaning my tap water good enough. That scares me more than using like distilled water. I’ll get that dechlorinator and def change my salt. I don’t think it was PPS as I had the crab for 5 months and it seemed...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

I was going to attempt to manually reshell him today but he’s gone :( honestly, I never signed up for this. My kids father brought him back to me after spending the weekend with him with a hermit crab. After much research, I learned they needed friends and a good crabitat and I’ve kept the original ...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

Last night, I kept him in isolation with substrate, water, food, and every single shell he can fit into. This morning he is laying on his side and is surrounded by the shells. I don’t know what that means. It’s like he made a shell fort around himself. He doesn’t look good :( it’ll be a full 2 days ...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

I’ve got her in a different small tank away from the others with just a little bit of water and several shells for her to chose from. I added a heating pad to the side of it to keep her warm. She isn’t doing much. Walked around a little, I added some honey and peanut shell in the tank. I also checke...
