Re: Guide to bugs in the crabitat 1.2

I second getting this sticky redone. It has some outdated links that no longer work. Maybe, and I know that you mods and admins are all diligently working to keep this site running smoothly and as such have a large amount of things on your plates, someone can be assigned to find new links and whatno...

Re: When is Your Birthday??...Newer even More updated list!!

Just a teeny tiny amendment to the list if you please, though you don't absolutely HAVE to do it.

I was formally known as oceanblue28 and am listed as such on the lsit, but now am TheCrabbyTabby, so if you could be so kind as to change that. Thanks! :D

To add to Suebee's post, the researchers take the horseshoe crabs from the ocean, bring them to a lab to extract a sample of their blood, which is blue by the way, and then release the animals roughly where they caught them so that they don't do damage to their populations. The blood of a horse shoe...

I did notice that amazing eclectus girl in your avie, Suebee. She inspired me to do some research on her species and I am surprised at the difference between genders. They almost look like different species! Anyways. I don't really bother with UV and full spectrum lighting. My tank is in my bedroom ...

Distilled water is, in essence, pure water. It has nothing else in it except the hydrogen and oxygen molecules that its composed of. No minerals, no chemicals ( like chlorine ), nothing but H2O. Because of this, it has a slightly acidic value. Some people argue that, because its slightly acidic and ...

Adding extra salt isn't necessary. They regulate the salt content of their shell water by mixing salt and fresh water. They can manage just fine with regular strength salt water.

Actually, Ecuadorians can thrive on many different types of substrate. I know someone who keeps hers on straight sand and she's never lost a single Ecuadorian. Personally, I keep my Ecuadorians on 100% coco fiber substrate and I've had great results. I've been keeping Ecuadorians for over three yea...

Cats are designed by nature to eat raw meat. Even our little house cat friends. Its actually unnatural to feed them the preprocessed packaged cat food. My mother used to feed our old house cat, Muffy, raw chunks of chicken ( mostly chicken fat ) that she trimmed off while preparing the meat. It was ...

I fed my crabs some raw salmon a few times and saw no ill effects on my part. Like Sugar said, just take the necessary precautions and you should be fine.

MaC, take Fishbone's advice. Please. Your getting in over your head with all those wants of yours. All the research in the world is no substitute for an ounce of experience. You simply CAN'T do it and it won't add anything beneficial to your crabs. Also, 5.5 gallon tanks are not necessary. They actu...
