Hermit Crab Hello those who couldn’t make it to MACNA. <> One of my (saltwater) hermit crabs was upside down in his shell looks for something like a few days and now his claws are missing. It looks like Tipps zum Dating in Ihren 40-ern he only has two legs right now and is definitely unable to move with his huge shell (he got greedy in getting a new home). What should I do with him until he can grow he claws back, which I am assuming will take a few molts at least? Would it be better if I keep him in the main tank, the sump/refugium <>, or quarantine tank?? How should I feed him, or at least he has access to food?? <> Thanks, Kim
Red Slime Algae Hi Bob, Haven’t written in quite some time. I have a case of Red Slime Algae. I’ve neglected my tank over the summer (I’ve been a bad boy) and now I’m going to remedy it through large water changes every week. I know what needs to be done, but I’ve seen claims from a few “sellers” that Red Leg Hermits eat red slime algae. Have you ever seen this? Thanks, Tony
