    Max is doing fine. She is back to being a vibrant purple-y color and is as happy as can be. And as for the tank, I do not know anyone selling a tank. Sorry.

    Well, I don’t know what its sex is. And I have only seen it up from underground only once since I got it. I have never fed my crabs a flower. And I have a little plastic hut that they like. But I’ve used bark and […]

    I have 3. Max and Jaro are my ladies I got a year ago today. And I got my mystery crab, Tuomo a month ago.

  • Kayla replied to the topic Ashy crab? in the forum Chewin' the Choya 7 years, 1 month ago

    Well she hasn’t gone under at all. And just upgraded the tank a few weeks ago. And since then, she hasn’t dug and has been active every day. And I noticed a little dent in her big claw that wasn’t there before. So […]

    Well, I would be nervous about putting an acid in the tank. But I am still new to this.

    Max is doing wonderful. She is eating well and being her normal, annoying self. She dug up little Tuomo earlier. And […]

    I have no idea how to keep it clean other than wiping it. I do that every morning and after dinner.

  • Kayla replied to the topic Ashy crab? in the forum Chewin' the Choya 7 years, 1 month ago

    This is Max today, with a quarter next to her for size reference. Jaro is a tiny bit bigger and Tuomo is a little smaller.

    Update: Max has a love affair with raw ground beef. I have never seen any of my crabs grab food from the dish and drag it to her hiding spot. And I mean she RAN back.

  • Kayla replied to the topic Ashy crab? in the forum Chewin' the Choya 7 years, 1 month ago

    I just checked on her, because she hasn’t moved out of her spot all day, and I noticed she is a lot hairier and the tips of her legs are very sharp. And she is darker. So I am guessing she molted? Can they just do […]

  • Kayla replied to the topic Ashy crab? in the forum Chewin' the Choya 7 years, 1 month ago

    I am not aware of her molting when I’ve had her. However, she is a bit bigger since I first got her. So that would mean she must have molted last may-july. I left her in the care of my boyfriend’s cousin, since I […]

    Today, Max has been going crazy. She has been pushing Jaro and dug up my newbie (I named it Tuomo) and it wasn’t happy about that with all the clicking it made. She enjoys sitting on top of a tiki decoration I […]

    I’ve read that if you are mounting the heater on the side of the tank, that you get one for the next tank size up. My hermit crabs seem to like it better, and stay on that side of the tank. It keeps the […]

    I put fresh eggshells in the tank as a calcium source. They seems to love it. Both of my “older” crabs have been hanging out in the fresh and salt water bowls since I upgraded. I also got an under tank heater that […]

    That pic is from august this year. Below is a picture from today. I had a 5 gallon plastic tank. I just managed to upgrade now to a class tank. I believe one of my crabs, Jaro, had molted over the summer. I had […]

    I have had my crabs for a year, but lately I’ve noticed that one of my PPs, Max,  looks a bit dull. She was never a really bright colored crab, but she looks a lot duskier. She is more active that she has been. And I just switched them to a 10 gallon aquarium. I am worried. Is she sick or going to molt? I am just afraid to lose my crab. 🙁

    This is Max, my shy little girl. She was bough with Jaro back in February 2012. She is mostly a purple color.

  • Kayla uploaded a new picture: Jaro 7 years, 2 months ago

    This is my biggest crab, Jaro (pronounced YAR-oh). She is the most active and the dominant crab. She is also the most friendly. I got her in February 2012. She is mostly orange.

  • Kayla uploaded a new picture: Nameless Crab 7 years, 2 months ago

    This is my newest crab. I got it in January 2013, and it is the smallest of my crew. It seems to be friendly as it came over to investigate my camera. It is a deep reddish-purple color.

    This is Jaro climbing the new plant in her tank. She seems to love it.
