Okay, so I went to check on my crabs the other day and I noticed one crab behind one of my plants and I thought it still had its shell on, but it didn't. It was just the body. It wasn't moving and I poked at it with a pencil ( Very gently of course) and it still wasn't moving. When I picked it up, I freaked out because I thought it had it's shell still on, but it was just the body. I think it might be the exoskeleton? It doesn't smell or anything, and if that is the case, than I should leave it in the tank because it says they eat it to regain lost nutrients right?
ps Another non-molting question. How come I have bought three heaters for my 20 gallon tank and I can't seem to get the temp above 72? So I brought another big heater that heats up my room and I use that to heat up my tank. I can't get the temp stabilized, and my humidity is at a constant 99% and it says on my digital thermometer that it's 'wet'? So should I just cleaned out the old substrate about a month ago, and it doesn't smell or anything inside. But I just can't get it at proper temperature?
You need a new hygrometer! I swapped my first one out when I got constant 'wet' readings...I know it's not that horrible in there! The 2nd got thrown out when the temp 'froze' at 26c. I'm waiting to get my little tank's 4th, the humidity's stuck at 90. I know my big tank's hygro isn't so crash hot anymore, the temp's stuck at 21.3 but there are 2 crabs up and about so I know it's warmer then that!
4/1 - Stained crab is a boy! 1/5 - Got a 'sick crab' pack from Nat. I'm very impressed, it's a large pack so will feed all crabs! 30/6 - My new hygros have arrived! The big tank is 29degrees/81humidity. The little tank has the same temperature but 86humidity.
kitty: Not much activity in my tank. One morning I got up and it looked like a tornado went through it. Water bowls tumbled, food dishes upside down. Fixed it all up and have been waiting eversince. ! Nothing. DARN !!
