 Nip-Nip & Pinchie

I finally had the chance to take some pix today. Nip-Nip was ready since I got home from work, but Pinchie has been buried since I woke up this morning. She REALLY loves to burrow! She finally came out around 8pm...

Nip-Nip & Pinchie



Their Crabitat
The top is off for the pix. It’s a hinged glass top to keep humidity in. It has a plastic strip in the rear which i’ve drilled a series of holes in for adequate ventilation.
Notice the dark spot of eco-earth in the lower right. That’s Pinchie! I mixed the sand and eco-earth around her very carefully when she was buried, as not to disturb her.
They absolutely LOVE the sand/eco-earth mix! Absolutely love it...



Their Playpen (an under-bed storage tote; GREAT for observing and exercise!)



Extra Shells



Poop




Even though they’re VERY similar in size and appearance, it’s easy to tell them apart. Nip-Nip’s walking legs are bright red, whereas Pinchie’s are a deeper, darker red...

It’s just a ten gallon. I tried not to crowd it too much, yet at the same time give them enough shelter and climbing apparatus. I think it’s perfect, and Nip-Nip & Pinchy seem to LOVE it!

My tank is a 10 gallon. I added clover to the right and a moss pit in the front center.

This is a great post for Ella to share her wealth of pictures. Here are my favorite tank layouts (or ones I think have good ideas for you to do) I’ve had over the year or so, dates on pictures, I go between a 20L and a 10 gallon when my crab population allowed. Now, on to the pictures....
Here are most of the things I have in my tank--


And when things are in the tanks--

I like your tank set up; do you have a hood for your tank or can you keep the proper temp without it?

@ Chamelion: I like your setup, but are you using calci-sand? I don’t mean to be a know-it-all or anything, but calci-sandis bad for hermit crabs, and can somtimes prove to be fatal. Calci-sand which claims to be "hermit crab safe" is not, because it clumps when wet, and wetness is needed for humidity, they can’t properly bury themselves in it to de-stress, or to moult, or just to dig, and if they eat it, it has chemicals in it that could seriously harm a hermit crab,and if the sand gets into a hermits shell it could cause irritation on the abdomen. And the rocks could hurt a hermit crab also.
If you need any help, you can message me.(:

Here’s my tank!

Hey everyone, check out www.hermitcrabassociation.com to learn the best way to care for your crabbies! I see some issues with most of the tanks on here but dont have time to write about them. I’m not meaning to be a troll or rude, I’m just interested in the best care for all the crabs! Happy crabbing,

Ashlee
