Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

How do I prevent the mold from continuing to grow once I remove it? It’s only grown since I added moss. Should I just remove the moss?

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Ok so now I got what I think is mold growing on some moss I added to help with humidity. It’s like white fuzzy stuff. Is this bad or hazardous? The tank is in my son’s room so I don’t want him getting sick. Thanks y’all!

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

One of my heating pads is zoomed. It covers half the back of the tank but my other pad is tiny. I may just get a big one. I will try using a towel on top to help. As long as I don’t use the heat lamp the humidity is super high. I just want it warmer so maybe a bigger second pad. I have a 20 gallon. ...

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Ok update and question! My molter is still doing great, walking around, and I moved her and my other hermit to their new aquarium. It has two heating pads on the side, sand and eco earth mix, and the humidity is great! However, I can’t get the temperature to stay above 70. It always drops between 6...

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Hey guys! So my hermit crab is still in her little corner. She looks good and healthy from what I can tell so I am assuming she is still regaining energy from molting? Should I place some food close to her? I just want the worry to end! Also I am DYING to move them to their new 20 gallon with the pr...

Re: I am new to hermit crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

My hermit crab is still in her corner but her claws are looking darker red like back to normal but she is still in her corner. How do I know when she is fully done molting? I plan on getting a larger aquarium and wondered when I could move them? She has already shed her exoskeleton a few days ago sh...

Re: I am new crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Oh ok so isn’t she supposed to change into a new shell? Or not necessarily? I think I will add some substrate to the cage and yes I have been thinking of upgrading because there’s so much crap in the tank that even though it’s a 10 gallon and two crabs, it looks super crowded :-/ I do have a soaking...

Re: I am new crabs and don’t know what’s going on!

Thank you for the replies! Ok so I need more substrate and plan on incorporating the play sand and getting a larger heat pad to cover the back of the tank, plus I will turn off heat lamp and cover top with Sarah wrap. I will also get more shells for them to choose and ditch the sponge plus improve t...
