Crabitat is missing the secret ingredient

Post by SinLeche » Fri Aug 09, 2019 5:59 pm

Title pretty much sums it up- I feel like my crabitat is missing something... I just can't figure out what. It's a 10 gallon tank and I have small 2 hermits, 1 of which has buried itself and I haven't seen it since I got it. My other crab is in the log hideaway so you can't see it in the picture.

Here's a picture of my crabitat: ... 6895563138

The conditions are good, it's at 81 degrees and 82% humidity, the crabitat has over 6" substrate, saltwater/freshwater (I just switched to Instant Ocean and Prime), fresh food (in the dish currently is quinoa, red quinoa, minced broccoli, arugula, and green apple) and a chia seed garden in between the water dishes- nothing has sprouted yet. It has extra shells, cholla wood, 2 fake plants, log hideaway, climbing rope in the back, and a cuttlebone piece as well as 2 large leaves that were marketed towards hermit crabs on amazon....heh.

I know it can't be just me, like what the heck is it missing?
Thanks everyone!

Do you have an UTH on the back? Are you giving them proteins? Is there a regulator set up?

Try a larger piece of cholla in the center of your tank to fill it out a little. Is that what you mean?
