My hermit crabs seem to like EE more, and I only used one fifty pound bag of sand, and used EE for the rest to make about 5-6.5 inches. So I would say that I used 4/7 of playsand, and 3/7 or 1/2 of EE. I also think the EE helps with humidity. Some people do the 5.1, some people do around half and ha...
I got dried shrimp. You can look in the reptile food section or the fish food section for dried meats. Just make sure it doesn’t have any harmful ingredients. The dried shrimp I got I think is from omega 1. I don’t know how to help with the hand feeding but you could put the q tips right next to its...
Sometimes crabs hide really deep in shells. You might want to check them again. I would recommend to get a water conditioner for tap or spring water called prime or aqueon tap water solution, and instant ocean salt for saltwater.

Either one can be accurate if you calibrate it
I got two digital acurite weather station that day the temperature and humidity. One of them was 7% too dry when I calibrated it. I felt like I could have saved $4
Thank you, I flipped him over and moved him closer to the food & water dishes. I also put q-tips with honey&powdered calcium mixture, water, & saltwater right next to him so they’ll all be right there if he lifts his shell. What foods should I be giving him? Are Honey and calcium good or is there s...
Sure. I haven’t experienced this before, but it seems like you are doing everything pretty good. You might want to put the crab right side up though in case it can’t do it itself. It could be too weak to get to the food and waters so you might want to move them closer too your crab and maybe have so...
