I'm new to this forum and i wanted to say hello! I have three crabs named Eric, Charlie and Herman.
:welcome:. If you have any question on the care of your little buddys someone always gets back to you in a short amount of time. Are you an experienced crabber?
I have actually had them for weeks. I'm worried about molting, do you know anything I can do to prepare other than bigger shells, an iso tank and deep sand?
:madhouse: welcome to the group I just went thru 2 molts so I'm still new like you other than what u already got just make sure u fot food and water for them. Let them do their thing they know what they are doingm
make sure the sand is deep enough for them to bury deep down in, mine was at least 3x's deeper than my largest crab if that makes sense? If my crab was 1 inch tall, my sand was 3 inches deep or deeper. Make sure it sand castle constistancy. There is nothing you can do to prepare a crab for a larger shell other than boil them, let cool & stick them in the tank & hope they like the shells you pick for them. I have some picky crabs that will only use tapestry turbo shells!
A large selection of shells helps too=)
make sure they have plenty of salt,and fresh declorinated water. Plenty of calcium (egg shells,cuttlebone,powdered calcium from the pet shop) also plenty of protien (meats,fish organic peanut butter) dried flowers and veggies.
