Re: ISO tank humidity and heat?

Under the tank heater, placed on the side of the tank above the substrate! Plexiglass or saran wrap on top holds in heat and humidity. Depening on the size of your tank, and how much it needs heated, I would recommend an Ultratherm, or Flukers, heating pad from reptilebasics.com or beanfarm.com. I b...

Re: Water

What dechlorinator are you using? Seachem Prime, which is what it recommended by many here, is two drops per gallon. And you put the lid back on and shake it up really well. At least, that is what I do.

@Wode.. I am sorry. Poor baby. They deserve so much better, but you were probably one of the best people she could have gone to. Thank you for being so caring.

Re: Crab eating plastic!

Oh no, I had it happen once three years ago and removed all of the plastic immediately, and just a few months ago I put in some plastic plants, all hard plastic so it would be harder for them to eat.

Re: Crab eating plastic!

May be that the safest thing to do is remove the plant. Crabs are weird so I can't say I know why he is doing it, but I have had the same things happen and my crabs diet definitely meets the nutritional requirements lol.

Re: Too much humidity? Pinkie Mice?

I do not see anyhing wrong with a pinkie mouse, if you can stomach the gore after. They find dead carrion in their native habitat all the time. Expect to maybe have it carried off and buried, mine sometimes do that with stuff they like a lot. High humidity is not a problem at all, as long as mold is...

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

I give my guys dried anchovy, no salt, and they love it! Also canned sardines are a hit usually, I bet yours will love it. Where did you get those, if you don't mind me asking?

Re: Calendula blossoms

I would put them in a food dish; I have had a whole Calendula blossom mold. It wasn't just the petals. It was all of it and it was in a dish, and still molded after about a day or two.

Re: Adding Substrate - What if they are Buried?

I believe, as long as you add no more than an inch a day, and don't pack it down, it should be fine!
