You have voted Wings for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have one more vote left for this month.

Outstanding -

That could be the most bizarre post I have ever read, and around here that is saying a lot. Right on

we got aliens, llumanti, government plots, abductions, 9-11/7-7 conspiracies, and now HERMIT CRABS. wow, that has to be the definition of diversity.

i've seen it all on ATS now.

oh, and it won't hurt the hermit crabs to be in seperate tanks and it'll take care of the big crabs stressing the little crab problem. can't believe i admitted to knowing that piece of here-to-fore useless information. hope it helps.:shk::shk:
if i hade a WATS left this month, you'd get it just for origionality.

I heard that Hermit crabs don't like each other and when one molts it is vunerable to an attack by rival crabs.

Google "hermit crab care sheet" and you might find some good info on the subject

Hermit crabs are not always nice to each other but they like friends or they get depressed... and they do. Hermez was my first crab and he was all bu his self so i got him 3 friends and he because more active and would acully move and not just eat and sleep...
I can't believe ppl. though that was "bizarre" a like weird but "bizarre" is a little strong...although i do see that it could be so simple or ...well not normal... but that could make it "bizarre" i geuss...

Oh wings I'm so glad theres another hermit enthusiast on this board. I have 12. So how long did you wait after he was done molting till you put him back? Usually I wait untill there out of hiding and climbing and back to normal before I put them back into the main crabitat. also, how do you have the food set up? I put out a few dishes spaced out around the crabitat, with diferent hiding places spaced out as well. Lastley, how big is your crabitat? The generall rule of thum I go by is 5 gallons per crab. They are social creatures, but they need there space. Hope that helps!! U2U me with any Q's!!
