Re: False bottom

Vivarium or aquarium? A lot of the time Viv glass isn't built to hold a lot of weight since it's for no water use and the species it's used for aren't needing much substrate. If it were an aquarium there would be no worries if you chose to, but I would be a little nervous about doing it with the th...

False bottom

I was thinking about building a false bottom for my 4x2x2ft vivarium but I'm wondering whether the pressure from the substrate above pushing down on the pvc supports will lead to the base of the vivarium cracking or not?

Re: My new bin topper!

That looks really interesting! I don't own mice but @Callalilly does and could probably give you any advice you needed. I think they're adorable but I'm sure my cats won't! Thanks and that's the same way that my dogs think of my guinea pigs but they haven't been eaten yet and I have had one 6 years...

My new bin topper!

Sorry I have been inactive for awhile but I'm back to stay and just wanted to update on a new project! I have been building a topper for an old bin cage I used for my hamsters which will now hopefully own mice (I haven't asked my dad yet but now I have built it I'm hoping he will say yes.) So here a...

Re: Crabs being funny

Mine don't do many things like that either, haha. Sometimes I see no crabs and sometimes I'll see a few out exploring-- nobody comes running for the food dish or anything though lol. Well at least they are not being "crabby".. I have had crabs kick others off ledges..walk behind them and "kick"! lo...

Re: Crabs being funny

I think I just have 2 lazy crabs. One gets active at night but the other eats and then sleeps, she's still distressing so hopefully after a successful molt she will be active, she's molting now so fingers crossed, the other crab is lazy for 2-4 days then from storing energy she goes crazy in the ta...

Re: Crabs being funny

Maybe you don't watch your crabs as much as others? Maybe some people just tell their stories really well and that makes the crabs seem entertaining? A good observer and writer can made the mundane seem enchanting. That could be an explanation although I do watch my crabs quite a bit I don't watch ...

Re: Crabs being funny

I mostly see mine out at night. Like 1, 2 in the morning. They do most of their activities while I sleep. While, since I started crabbing in November they are more active than before, they are no means active constantly. I have to sneak up on my crabs. That, or approach slowly. Some don't mind me, ...

Re: Crabs being funny

I think it's because other people have has some of theirs for years maybe? Mine are not so active but I haven't had them long. My one crab will be really active ever other night, last night she enjoyed climbing her vine and then jumping off into the water. I've had one of mine a year and that one d...
