Re: Hello! New crabber

Hello and welcome to crabbing! Feel free to ask question about anything you don't understand or need help with! As for heating, your best bet would be an under tank heater(UTH). For crabs, the heater is always mounted on the back or sides of the tank, never underneath. Personally, the room where I h...

Re: How much Eco Earth

If you don't have an emergency like a bacterial bloom or flood, there really isn't any need to completely change out the sub.

Re: New crabber

They will get enough oxygen when you open the tank to change food and water every couple of days. My first two tanks didn't have a lid, so I sealed them with saran wrap. I have a plexiglass lid now, covering the entire top.

Re: Adopted (2) Crabs - Need help with Substrate

I'm not sure about that brand. I *think* it is very similar to something like Quickrete....but hoping someone from the US will weigh in.

Re: Adopted (2) Crabs - Need help with Substrate

Welcome to crabbing! Play sand won't be white, it will be...well, sandy colored LOL. I am in Canada, but think that looks like play sand. You are correct that the Calcium sand should not be used. A very small amount may not be harmful to the crabs. If I were you, I would take out as much of the calc...

Re: Designer Dog?! (With pictures)

so-called designer dogs are mutts. at best they are accidental, at worst they are bred by people who are profit-driven. either way, they are due to human irresponsibility and they should not be glorified or given cute names. And yes, I do have one of what would be considered one of them - he is a mu...

Re: Fighting? Chirping crab?

I asked about the number of shells, because I wonder if the one crab was possibly interested in the other's shell? HCA does recommend 3-5 extra shells per crab, so that would be 9-15 extras. Maybe they haven't seemed interested in the shells because there wasn't a good selection? There are also prop...

Re: Jumping Ship

1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? Play sand/coco coir 3:1 ratio moistened with Instant Ocean saltwater mix. Curly - How deep is your sub? 2. Do you have gauges in the tank to measure temperature and humidity? If so, where are they located and what temperature and hum...
