Crab mesh?

I’m wanted to upgrade my tank with decor and want to use what people are referring to on here as crab mesh, however we couldn’t find it in any craft store, Walmart or any stores like Lowe’s. I tried to search to buy online but when I look up crab mesh nothing even close comes up to what I see people...

In the dessert dish I have crushed apple, diced cranberries with a little calcium powder,...

Green tea

So I have some organic non caffeinated green tea with jasmine flowers mixed in and figure if the green tea was safe for them I could feed it to the crabs. I don’t see green tea on the safe or unsafe food lists. Also there has been discussions in it saying it’s safe or that people are feeding it to t...

Name?

We have one crab left without a name. The hubby and I can’t think of something to fit him good that cute maybe clever and unique. He has a weird quirk of changing shells a lot like he is a fashionista and wearing a shells that fit the day. He’s a big night owl but super laid back. He doesn’t climb m...

What wood materials are safe?

I wanted to build my crabs a second level by creating basically a wooden table with materials from a local hobbyist shop near us that has it conveniently precut. However when I stopped by I realized I didn’t know if the type of wood was safe to put in a crabitate. There was only balsa or basswood an...

Worm castings?

Hey I’m seeing that worm castings are kinda an essential for crab diet. We search Walmart Lowe’s and Home Depot today and the closest thing we could find is soil with worm castings in and I’m assuming that’s not it. Where can we find just the worm castings to feed the crabs?

Beans

I’m liking the idea of adding some beans to my crab food rotation. Should I feed the beans to them cooked? Or can I mix them with the dry food I give them (which includes dried safe foods rice oats nuts and that kind of thing) ? Also, could you maybe grind them up with another type of dry food for e...

Humidity struggle

Hi I’m having a really hard time keeping our 40 gal tank humid enough for our crabs. We use only ee for sub and have moss scattered around to help out at well. Tank had full lid cover to help keep moisture in. We have just been missing several times a day to keep it up but it feels like we are const...

How can I tell my females have eggs?

Just wondering if there is anything you will notice or if you pick up each of the females to examine if they have eggs?

chicken or beef broth?

I found some chicken and beef jars from the store. Besides the beef and chicken the only ingredient listed is that meat broth. Can hermit crabs have beef and chicken broth? Or is it not safe for them?

Re: Fruits and nuts?

Thanks for the advice I actually find freeze dried fruit chips of strawberries peaches pears and bananes with no salt or sugar or additives at family dollar!!! Super happy especially since the ingredients listed was literally just the fruit and nothing’s else! Each bag was $1!!!!!
