Poop happens!

Post by CrabbyMom33 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 5:00 pm

I did a fairly major clean in my 90 gallon today. I pulled all the shells, which is probably 5 dozen. I cleaned out the shell shops and found the content to be very consistent in all 3 shell shops - a little sand and lots of poop! No wonder I don't find much on the substrate. :D

Due to the variance in color I found and some recent questions on the board about what poop looks like and what color it is, I figured it was worth taking a picture to posting.

Haha! My hermit crabs poop is white. :lol:

:hlol: The replies to this thread are hilarious.

On a more serious note, my crabbies also like to use the extra shells and shower caddies as toilets. :lol:

Oh my gosh this just made my day.

SOMEONE in my tank always drops one single crab turd on their food when I put it in there at night. I can never catch the culprit, but I'll put the food in, and look 10 minutes later, and there is a single poop sitting right on the top.

Also, mine never have white or light brown, they're always dark brown.
