Re: ultratherm and retpliebasics.com

The pads are pre-set to work at 95 degrees so they don't burn out. Even though you're only seeing a 3 degree increase that may be because the room is already warm. If it were winter and the room was at 70 the pads may still reach 78. (Hoping? Praying? Maybe?) No way to know for sure though for a fe...

Re: Those with straws, please talk to me

My humidity often goes up to 85, sometimes higher, and my straws don't seem to mind at all. I think that if your tank is 80/80 most of the time, you should be fine. My strawberries are the calmest crabs in my tank and for me they're the ones that are most active during the day. I say go for it! Awe...

Re: Those with straws, please talk to me

They can't be sooo sensitive that if the temp/humidity fluxs a little (Say like 5 %) they'd become ill. No enviornment is THAT stable in the wild. Yeah but where they come from I believe 85/85% is the minimum . http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/5749/bigworldmapcoloured.th.jpg Orange is straws... a...
