Re: New Exotics! (better pictures coming soon)

Looks like your well reasearched! But, here is a link to a website of someone who actually tried 4 different years (3 successful!! :) ) She kept it very well documented! It is really interesting to read, and it may help you! :) http://maryakers.com/inthecrabitat/ Thanks! I always do a ton of resear...

Re: New Exotics! (better pictures coming soon)

There are many reports of hermits laying eggs in captivity but so far no one knows how to induce breeding behaviors reliably, not to mention how difficult it is to keep the zoea alive. I wish you luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks! Yeah I understand how difficult it is. I used to help ...

Re: New Exotics! (pictures coming soon)

They all look great so far. I fed hard boiled eggs cut up into smaller pieces with the eggshell, shrimp, and some Indian almond leaves. They ate a lot of the food and I gave each bin a filled plate. Some are drinking a lot of saltwater while others are exploring their new home. The pseudorugosus is ...

New Exotics! (better pictures coming soon)

Today was a big day. I just received 16 hermit crabs that are going to be part of a breeding project. I have 3 groups and hope that I have both males and females. The groups consist of 5 lila, 5 cavipes, and 5 indos, and 1 pseudorugosus. They are currently very small and are in large tote crabitats ...

I'm not positive, but I would guess that it probably happens during molts :)
Ok thanks! I’ll keep checking after molts then and hopefully I can try and breed them. :)

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

We have seen hermit crabs change their sex. One of your males might change into a female, but it's hard to say. Yeah I have heard that from others. Hopefully they do change. That would make them simultaneous hermaphrodites like a lot of marine organisms. Ill keep an eye on that. Do they change sex ...

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

How are they doing? Sorry for no update for awhile, it’s been very busy. Unfortunately since they came from very bad conditions where I got them from, 2 days in two surface molted and did not make it. The other two are great still and are coloring up after two good molts. They were at a local repti...

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

Of course I understand adopting is always a great thing to do! And yeah the winter is rough by me too. The website I got straws from was yourfishstore but it is a risk since it seems they might ship directly from the wholesaler. But when I got mine they came in perfectly.

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

Hopefully I can get some exotics in the future. My 10g is good for PP's and my one E (you don't know how excited I am to have a crab beside a PP), and even when I get a 20g, unless I see another E, a viola, a blue/straw, or rug, I'm just going to stick with helping the PPs. I can't wait until I'm d...

Re: Need help with an ID.(Image heavy)

Yea I agree. I'm glad I got them because the guy who sold them most likely had no idea of care. I'm excited to have them :D
