Re: Holes in sand

I pretty much leave mine be, I have holes everywhere and a large hill on one side. You can try, but if they want a hole there, you'd be fighting a losing battle. JMO

Re: White mold over buried (molting?) new crab

It's doubtful he's anywhere near where he went down, they tunnel like mad.

Re: First time tank and struggling with heat...

I have a piece of glass duct taped over the mesh on my lid. Was under $20 to get the glass and have them cut it. My tank is a 20g long so the glass is larger.

Craft mesh, it's for cross stitch, comes in loads of colors. My grandson likes red.

Yes, my acurite meter is in there, I got tired of them knocking it down and trying to bury it.

King of the acurite

These guys are best buds, they were won at a county fair by my grandkids. The little one is always climbing over the big one. The big one protects him from my e who is a bully. The e once marched up to the big one and ended up rolled across the crabitat. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190514/7b6...

Re: How do I know if my crabs are defecating?

Yes, they do. I've found it in the food dish, in their wheel and since I hung the acurite, on top of that. Looks like little, tiny brown bananas.

Think I'll hit it with my stick blender and see if that helps.

Salt

No matter how I mix it, hot, cold, warm, salt first, salt last, dump it in or trickle it in, I ALWAYS get this (refer to picture). I always end up sucking it out with a turkey baster. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190507/d9f61fc0cfcecdc4f75f8f4d376b03cb.jpg Sent from my SM-J337A using Tapatalk
