Re: Thrift shop score/lighting

Doesn't wattage usually Translate to heat by-product? I'm not sure what kind of lamp that is but it looks like a midsize incandescent tube what's that size T10? I would assume that excess heat is what you would want to watch for. Tubes are always good low wattage options they provide a lot of light ...

New Hygro Thermo worth looking at.

New hygro thermo. It was like 12 bucks on Amazon with some of the best reviews out of any of the products. I calibrated it and it seems to be the most accurate thing I've owned so far. Lots of people have those black and gray bricks from AcuRite from Walmart you can take the brick out of your tank a...

Re: Sprout buffet.

Thanks everybody! One layer of peat crusted with seed Pete sprinkled on top. Damped it down and left it out uncovered but it dried out immediately and then I remembered in order to germinate seeds I need to cover them. So I Saran wrapped it and put it on top of the tank and I'm sure the warm tank he...

Re: May be molting?...should I leave him alone?

Yes at least one buddy of the same species. 5 gallons of tank per crab for pp. I hear calcium sand can harden to cement when wet. You will need something like play sand. I found mine at depot. Mix it with coco fiber. I actually use long fibered sphagnum i found at depot as well. Play sand is nice an...

Re: May be molting?...should I leave him alone?

:) slooooow down. 1. Replace the calcium sand when an admin here recommends 2. Its good to just worry about keeping your crabitat dialed in at first and provide good food and water. After that try not to worry about your crab for at least 2 to 3 weeks or more! Thats because they will use all that ti...

Re: Aproved Building and Decor Products.

The HCA does not endorse any product. It never has. Members write reviews and share what works for them. Please never release a crab that has been purchased. They come from different areas and islands (though mostly Haiti) and are often exposed to foreign crab species during their warehousing. Rele...
