Re: Crap, my new E's brought in some mites. **microscope pic

Hey----Tiger or Wolf can you easily see your hypos? Just got mine and have put about half of the container split between the 70 and the 120 gallon tanks and I don't see squat, well except the food mites that were already in the tanks!

Re: DOUBLE wammy!!! I have mites!!!

that is really not too bad, I was reading up on them this morning wondering if I could divide one cannister between the 70 gallon and the 120 gallon tanks to treat them both. I haven't seen in the big tank but hey, might as well just in case I have missed them.

Re: DOUBLE wammy!!! I have mites!!!

Please let me know how that goes, we did another round of baths and found another big fat mite on one of the violas. I think they want to pinch me. :(

Also, how many did you order for you big tank?

Re: DOUBLE wammy!!! I have mites!!!

I think the ones I found in the bowl are food mites, looked closely I'm not finding any on crabs, but I see them in my worm castings. I still need to recheck the LHC ruggies and violas but the little suckers have moved the substrate around and gone under it so I'm trying to let them destress a bit.

Re: DOUBLE wammy!!! I have mites!!!

so this morning I bathe one of the small straws I've had for weeks now and once again he is completely clean. He's been clean every bath and the most active by far so I put him into my tank. Now this is on my way out the door so I just left the bowl on the counter. Just now when I'm puttering around...

Re: Thoes with straws, please talk to me

Haven't had mine long enough to be an expert on the long term, I haven't had any limbs drop from them and they are quite active. So far they really seem to like freezed dried krill and fruit treat from the HCP. Honestly, I had not planned on getting any straws because of all I've heard, but saw them...

Re: How to add a second level shell shop?

hey crabbymom, can you post a picture of the other caddy you mentioned? The one that is 15 inches long? I've been looking for something similar for shells maybe. I have found a metal one, that is in the shower caddy section at walmart so I'm guessing it won't rust but I'd have to put something in th...

best Hygrometer???

Ok, it's time to replace some equipment in the 'tat. What are you using hygrometer wise that you love?

I've used the little "hermit crab" ones when starting up last year, moved on the the white ones from Wal mart but I need something I can trust a bit more.

Suggestions?? :crabblush:

Thanks!!
