First of all, let me just say I love these emoticons, haha! Hi! I'm Mandee, and I'm a new crabber from Texas. As a little background, I became interested in Hermit Crabs a few years ago and I've been doing research and mulling over the topic of actually getting them ever since. I decided that as a Christmas present to myself, I'm going to go ahead and set up my tank and then pick up my new crab babies when the weather gets a little warmer. (Side Note: Texas weather = brutal) :chuckle: (You know..they say in Texas, if you don't like the weather we're having, just wait five minutes and you'll get something different.) Oh goodness, Texas jokes. Gotta love them! Anyways, I like this forum a bunch. I've been reading it for awhile now and I just decided to join! I can't wait to meet a bunch of you guys and share such a wonderful interest. Question Time! 1. In your crabitat, what are some of the decorations and ornaments that your crabs like the best? 2. What foods have worked the best for you? 3. How long should I let my tank "cycle" before getting my crabs? That is, letting the humidity and temperature become stable and getting into a routine as far as lights and cooling? Thanks!
