This is what he looks like right now. He will be still and then go and eat and move a little and then kind of go back to this. His abdomen is tucked in, I couldn’t reshell him

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

I tried having him back into a shell and he is tucking his abdomen in and he is so weak :( I feel a little helpless. Honestly, I got these hermit crabs because my son came home with one after visiting his father and so I bought more and started learning how to care for them but I don’t like touching...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

I meant unbury the other one and the substrate seems like the right consistency to me. I guess I am freaking out because I don’t want to hurt him and I have NEVER backed a crab into a shell so idk I’m going to try and ok I will have to change my water and salt. I got a fish water dechlorinator once ...

Re: Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

I haven’t touched hon because everything online I saw said to leave him alone. He doesn’t look right to me. I can’t believe I could’ve collapsed their tunnels. Should I I bury my other one that’s under and make sure she’s ok??? I don’t use an digital hydrometer thermometer so I will get one soon. An...

Hermit crab out of shell and pale!

So everything has been great for...

Re: Not sure if it’s an emergency or normal?! Newbie here

It’s been maybe a month since they’ve had deep enough substrate and the newbie crabs buried immediately. But my regular crabs still hung out on the top until I guess they realized they could bury and so now they are gone lol no foul odor so that’s good. It’s just I was so used to seeing them all the...

Re: Help! I am freaking out!

Re: Help! I am freaking out!

Also....I am no longer using the heating lamp. I just know it needs to be warmer than 70 :-/ I am looking for a better heating pad now. Shaking my head. Welp...at least I know all my hermit crabs are ok. I have never had more anxiety about any pet in my life before being a crab owner.
