I took some pics and I tell you when it on my website.
Okay there in!
Great to here you got another tank. But, now that i see them, i can see another *big* reason august streeked. Your sand is much, much to shallow. It must be atleast 4 inches or so.
I'll do it later. By the way got to the album Random
yes, i went to that album. And you cant just 'do it later'. Your crabs need a good 4 inches of sand...
Nice set up! I'm not worried, I'm sure you'll put that sand in soon.
I used to have a cage with like, one inch of sand in it. But I learned, and filled it to the correct level. Shelle absolutely LOVES to dig.
Yeah, your sand is a bit shallow, but I trust you'll do the right thing for your crabs. That hut looking thing is interesting - do you remember who made it or what it was called?
Your crabs look happy! Make sure each tank has both fresh and salt water, and I'm sure they'd love to eat some nice fresh food in celebration for dinner!
I put more sand in the tanks last night (halloween) cause there was no tricker-treaters.
That hut looks like it was made by the Snak Shack people and it contains: Pine Wood Shavings, Cassava Starch, Alfalfa, Sodium, Potassium Sorbate, Propionic Acid, Honey, Glycerin, Cotton Thread, Bamboo, Straw, and Paper Cord. My snake's mice love to eat that thing, as that's what it was made for.
I'm glad to see you are finally addressing the spacing issue. Augst was that one that had that weird ulcer-like thing, does he still have that? Maybe you need some more shells in the tank for them to try on?
Ahhh, the only prob is that the crabbies might miss each other.
But hey, maybe once in a while you could switch which crabs are in each cage so they can all meet and never have to miss each other!
You could also, once in a while, take them out of their cages (all of them) and put them in a makeshift pen. That's what I would do!
If that hut is the Snack Shack, the pine in it is lethal to crabs, sorry, Cool.
Oh, and Donny - moving crabs around (in one tank, then back to the other) will actually stress them out. They get used to their surroundings and changes cause stress that could kill them. That's why you ISO crabs after you buy them from the pet store, or why you shouldn't handle adoptees for at least a week or two after getting them, or why generally you should leave crabs alone for a few days after a deep clean. An exerciser that everybody goes into, but then goes back into their own tank, could work well in this situation.
It was pine so i'm going to return it. Luckily nobody is hurt.
Glad we caught it before it could hurt them!
Thank you emmac and deejam
It looks like you're over you're cold, Cool!
Glad to have you back!
I got 2 new huts today
Great! One hut per crab is the best but maybe you will be able to save up and get some more then. For now, you're doing great just make sure you don't fall for those adorable little buggers at the store.
Do you do one hut per crab, coco? I've never had that many huts - my guys have always preferred to dig when they felt like hiding. I have a few who prefer sleeping in the cholla log (it's hollow, go figure), two or so who liked the cocohut (I had several, but only one of them ever got used, sometimes there would be 2 or 3 crabs in it at once) to hide in, and on a VERY rare occasion someone used to go into the rock shelter, but overall they just love digging in. I don't know who'll like where in my new setup - I still have 6 crabs active on the surface out of my 8, which is highly unusual in my tank!
Just curious, what do you mean switch every month?
Every crab can meet a new crab and a new tank. I'm going to do it every week instead of month(too long).
