Long Time, No Crab

Post by emberfusion » Fri Jun 02, 2017 1:02 pm

Hi everyone!

It has been a long time since I've been on here and a long time since I've had hermit crabs. About 3 years ago I had a lot of life changes going on and ended up having to make the tough decision of giving up my little (and big!) guys.

Now, here I am, 3 years later - married, kid, house.
I'm ready to get back into caring for hermit crabs. I truly miss watching, caring for, and loving them.

Since it's been so long, I wanted to make an intro post to help get reacquainted with this place.

Well, now I'm off to read through things here to see how knowledge has changed in the past 3 years so I can set up properly. :cheer:

Hi welcome back! I'm pretty sure everything is the same other than heat/humidity being 80/80. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask ;)

Thank you, thank you. :)

I truly forgot how addicting crabbing was, but boy am I falling back into it QUICK!

I've already gotten plans drawn up for my new tank. Going to be building my dream tank this time around, so I am super excited.

That is SO exciting! What size are you thinking?

My plans are coming up to just over 300 gallons, but I'll know for sure once I get all my supplies in one place and can get final measurements in. I'll def be making a thread for it once it gets going. Lots of planning first, though.
