Really fine pebbles (difficult to get today), extremely wet, for the molting tank. You can observe in both my personal Google folder for the Hermies. Brand new okay articles is within the photos of one’s Lego structure that they tore asunder. Jon is within the chief tank images that have normal gravel shortly after an excellent molt. Carol
I recently planned to let you know that a beneficial Lego wall structure performs perfectly right here

Really, nobody’s responded yet, Maryann. I simply complete these with water and set her or him within the a good plate of liquids and you will microwave from the five times (boiling). Then i move him or her well to leave the new nonsense. This can be my procedure for new shells otherwise of those with been employed by that crab and discarded. One other crab constantly wishes hands me personally lows. Possibly a circular bottle brush would work to reach to the? Or Qtips? Their pinky? Carol
From: crabworks Date: Thu Topic: Re: Revision to my Hermies..for it month! October My personal old crabs usually dug under some slate or a rock to help you molt. Now I want to bring these with postings to hold her or him upwards. As far as i accept that they want a damp substrate in which in order to molt properly, Really don’t believe they enjoy under water foods under control so you can dampen new substrate or around food dishes for a good treat immediately after molting . (I know you were kidding, Marie.) I believe just what folks are watching is the requirement for an effective crab so you’re able to burrow below something flat to make a great colony and to getting a defensive rooftop above. And you will I’m sure it can help in the event that h2o is built in the processes, whether or not accidental. I am a company believer during the a damp molting substrate. Assume y’all be aware that. ?? I have been considering this more for a long period. My viewpoint arises from personal findings. Any takers about? Carol from CrabWorks

PS: Trust in me, once they could proceed how they regularly, I might end up being really grateful. Basically got a big container having most strong gravel…better, I really don’t therefore will be tough to ensure that is stays loving sufficient and you will would require a whole lot of pebbles to own bad mother to cleanse. I am unable chatki to even see more good gravel. Thus…the fresh designer is always working. ??

Hello gals and you may guys, Immediately after understanding so much throughout the forest sleep (bedding), I thought i’d test it. I got the latest stone (TRex) sawed into house and you can over loaded one region. However built a good Lego wall surface along the fundamental container, and you may occupied in the a-quarter of one’s container which have tree bed linen. The brand new Lego wall surface work really well, interestingly sufficient (middle size Legos), that have pebbles similarly and you may on the several ins out of forest bed linen on the other side. Well, my personal a few crabs don’t appear overjoyed to have it. It bring occasional strolls inside, however, mainly stay on the brand new pebbles front. I have tried it which have and you can rather than good UTH significantly less than it. No less than it have not pulled a lot of it into the pebbles. It actually was value a-try. Maybe at molt big date they enjoy it. I am going to let it rest truth be told there a small extended in the primary tank. Legos don’t behave as wall space to hold right up a record roof after they had been strengthening molting nests. Jon and Kate totally missing the fresh structure while they tried to dig so you can China. For folks who consider, We actually rubberized banded the new Legos with her, and pinched aside all the rubber bands. Looks, as to what I was capable comprehend here, the little crabs such as this Tree Sleep an educated. Therefore the jumbos appear to not promote a great hoot. Carol
