Re: Recommend things to me

That would expand from 10 gallons to30 gallons I think.

Re: Recommend things to me

I’ve been researching toppers too, but don’t understand he works. How is access gained to feed/tidy up with a glass topper. Eg would it be possible to get a 20 gallon tall and modify that as a topper for my 10 gallon? I see a Zilla vertical tropical terrarium that’s 12” L x 12” W x 18 H. My current ...

Re: Recommend things to me

I was hoping for a 20-40 gallon tank, tall, that’s fit on a 24”x11.75” cabinet that had a swing door so accessible from the front. Quite a tall order I know. I can get a bigger cabinet, but it can’t be much bigger as this fits in a nook between a window and a column. It’s the only area in my place t...

Re: Recommend things to me

Thank you for letting me know I didn’t realize silicone would have to air out for a few days, I thought just one day! I would do the silicone before adding the substrate & decor & crabs to the tank, but it’s good to know it’d need to air out for that long. I’m having trouble finding a tall tank that...

Re: Recommend things to me

Wow I never thought of that I might need to try silicone in the new setup. I had a large corner caddy with 4 big suction cups and it’s help up great for I think 6 months but it’s just started slipping downward so I had to remove it. You can see a bit of it in this photo where my guy tried to escape ...

Re: Recommend things to me

These are all great suggestions thank you!! Plexiglass & sealing the edges with tape for a Exxo Terra tank (that is the kind I meant) is an interesting idea, I might try that. How often do you have to replace the tape? I wonder if sone type of waterproof tape would work and be safe enough. I love th...

Re: Recommend things to me

Two crabs, they’re small-medium. I’m printing out the template to measure them tomorrow better.

Recommend things to me

Hi! I want to get a bigger tank but am having trouble. It needs to fit on a 24” L x 11.75” D cabinet, so I want to go tall but I need to be able to get inside easily for changing food/water. I like the reptile tanks with doors on front, but they aren’t deep enough for 6”+ of substrate and reviews sa...

Re: Is this safe?

Follow up question:

How long can freeze dried meat like this stay in the tank? Overnight? 2 nights?

Re: Is this safe?

I know, I’m kinda weird about raw meat though, i’d rather give them cooked. When I cook meat it’s always with seasoning and I have other pots / pans on the stove too so it’s hard to designate just a pan for the crabs. Or if I set some aside to cook later I forget and then it goes bad [emoji2358] Tha...

Is this safe?

Is this freeze-dried chicken safe for my crabs? It doesn’t say organic, but it says it’s for cats & dogs and 100% chicken. I’m trying to up their meat-based protein (they mostly get beans/lentils/fish/shrimp/egg/peanut butter now). I’ve found it tricky to find time to cook unseasoned meat for them. ...

Re: Awake during daytime?

Also, that’s the same Prime bottle I’ve been using for a long time. I just realized I hadn’t checked before if that was the right type of Prime. Glad it’s the right one.
