Re: hermit crabs Type Sirs, onenightfriend I’m creating so you’re able to inquire specific day hermit crab hobby
It seems the one opening of one shell is inside the other opening of the other shell on the top of a piece of live rock. (one shell is on top of the other shell). They where both acquired at the same time and relocated to larger shells. One shell is about 3/8″ and the other is a ?”. Not sure if I should ban the children from looking into the tank or if the smaller one is trying to acquire a larger home? There doesn’t seem any movement from either shell, which leads to believe they are not fighting? Yesterday I notice a few were moving around the bottom more actively instead of scavenging. Should I break them up? Or listen for the pitter-patter of little (many) feet.? If so how long would it take for little ones? A side question regarding the new book (Reef Invertebrate): I’ve been reading and researching many topics in your site prior too moving up to a 75 gal next June. Many question regarding the brothers Kalk and Alk and was wondering if this is touched on in the new book? And the proper way to mix a Kalk slurry? It was referenced many times in the FAQ’s that it’s covered in Anthony’s book “Coral Propagation”, and I was wondering (hoping) it was covered in the new book? If not, I’ll have to pick up Coral Propagation sooner than expected. Don’t plan on adding any coral, etc, until the end of next year. Many thanks out to the crew for all of your help. DaveK

Do crabs and snails need air? Do regular or hermit crabs require air, or can they stay fully submerged in water all the time? Snails?

Cleaning Crew Hello WWM crew. I’m currently looking into getting a cleaning crew for my 180 gallon aquarium that consists of 200 lbs of live rock and 300 lbs of sugar size aragonite and wanted to see what you recommended in terms of crabs and snails, I’ve been hearing some negative things regarding the blue legged hermit crabs and Astrea snails. Thanks, Jose
