Re: Cheap/DIY Hood Needed for 10g & Is 73 F Safe for PPs?

I would definitely get a heater, at 73 the crabs won't be very active & could have health issues down the line if kept at that temp long term. you can get a heat mat & attach it to the back of the tank. for a 10g you shouldn't need a very large/expensive one. Ideally look for one the same width of t...

yes ultratherms can be safely insulated with aluminum foil! I've done it myself & it helps a lot!

Re: Questions about lights and heating

ultratherms are good, you can get them from the Reptile Basics website. I'd recommend getting the largest one that will fit on the back of your tat. you'll want mount it on the back above or alongside the substrate line, never underneath. for lighting there are a ton of options. this forum has a hea...

Re: Using Only EcoEarth

I know there are crabbers who use only sand or only EE. the only downside I can think of is EE doesn't hold its shape well when the crabs tunnel but I'm not sure if that would make a difference in a temporary enclosure. it should hold humidity well though

Re: Can a rescued cannibal crab be "rehabilitated"?

poor guy, he must have been starved! I know larger and smaller crabs can cohabitate so I'd imagine be could eventually be introduced to yours. I'd wait to introduce them until you can be sure that any nutritional deficiencies he might have had have been resolved. Maybe until after he molts with you?...

Re: Recently rescued a crab

sounds like you are on the right track! Add some protein to his diet & keep up the good work! you can try some raw honey too, crabs love it & it can help them "heal" after being in poor conditions.

Re: Daphnia Cubes

Agree! Those look good. I honestly prefer offering things with a little added vitamins. They break down quickly in stored food when not purposefully added, and it helps create a more well rounded diet for the hermits. Awesome! Can't wait to see how they like them Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
