New Crabs, New Shells!!

Post by arsavoir » Mon Oct 16, 2017 11:45 pm

I got a new hermie today, named Leonardo (originally in a painted ninja title shell) as soon as he went into the iso tank he switched! And I put new shells in my main tank with Jareth, Winston and Turbo!! Jareth switched around but is still in his old shell, but Winston is in his new shell!

Congrats on the newbie!

What kind if substrate are you using? It's awfully white hence the question. My sand was an orange-y color til I mixed it with ee (dark brown when properly moist). Now it's a grayish color - don't know how that happened.

I just have vitasand, it’s actually kinda yellow but the florescent light brightens it. He’s just in the iso tank because I just got him from the pet store. My main tank has coconut fiber.
