I can’t find Tiny!

Post by crabbycasey » Mon Jan 11, 2021 9:24 am

I had all 5 of my med PP crabs under at once and got bored watching/feeding my pet sand so I got 2 more hermies, a small and a teeny. My small one, Ruby, seems to be adjusting pretty well, climbing, eating, digging and hauling shell when I approach the tank. Lol. My teeny guy, Tiny, checked out a few things, ate a little and went into a hide. Well I have a 40g breeder and now...I can’t find Tiny! It’s been a few days and I look all the time, everywhere, for his tiny little self with no luck. I guess he could be buried, but just hoping for some thoughts from those who also have teenies in a big tank!

Thank you!

Probably buried himself. I have 5 in a 65 gallon and sometimes I can't even find the larger ones' burrows! As long as your sure that the tank is escape-proof then I wouldn't worry :)
My 5 crabs: Dilly (ecuadorian, medium-small), Flame (purple pincher, medium), Fleck (purple pincher, medium), Bubbles (blueberry, medium-large), Indigo (blueberry, large-extra large).

Omg, I didn’t even think about that...him escaping! The only area possible is where my bubbler tube goes into the tank and I think it’s even too skinny for Tiny...I think . Going to double check now! Lol

I have two teenies, Mango and Koda. It's quite easy to find Koda as she insists on living in a shell 3x her size. For Mango, though, even in my small 16gal tote it can be hard to find her! They find ways to hide. Don't worry, he's probably just hiding or buried.
