Re: Plexiglass lids

So, with the price of plexiglass, I dont think we are going that route immediately. I totally underestimated those numbers. I would have ended up spending about $100 for the lid, which isnt a bad price but I also have to reinforce it so it doesnt warp and fasten it down all around. So, for right no...

Yeah, that would work. Mine was under my mesh lid.

Same thing happened to all of my handmade plexi lids. I gave up and went with glass.

Crabs Drag Minnow

I fed my crabs their first minnow the other day and it was a hit for at least two of them! They drug it out of the bowl, under the moss pit, and in through the skull! I will definitely be buying more of these from The Healthy Hermit. Thanks Stacy! https://youtu.be/zcWlV2vFRCs Sent from my iPhone usi...

Re: Hamster wheel won't turn? I have a pic of it, any ideas.

Like Motörcrab said I don’t think you need to worry about them falling off. I didn’t even have a wheel and they kept climbing to the top of their plastic trees and second level moss pit and they’d just fall. I figure they wouldn’t keep doing it if it really hurt them. But they’d just crawl back up a...

Re: Hamster wheel won't turn? I have a pic of it, any ideas.

They haven’t really teeter tottered it together but they usually climb up the support in the middle then crawl one way and it then goes down because of weight. T...

Re: Hamster wheel won't turn? I have a pic of it, any ideas.

I can’t see the wheel stand in the picture, I’m not sure if it’s the angle like others have said. Is it pushed too far into the sand? Here is mine when it was new. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190316/2ae4403a6b1bbf3978c9c3213039570a.jpg Rod♡Salty♡Bob♡Squirt♡Crabina »-♡-> Our Purple Pinchers <...

Re: Crabitat 2.0 (from a 20 gal to a 50 gal)

That is beautiful!!! You did a great job!!! They have so much to explore that it might take them some time to find the wheel :) Give it time!! :) Thanks! I think it will. They’ve only been going to the water to the food then back to their moss pit. Someday they’ll get there! Sent from my iPhone usi...

Hey Xenocrab, I used zip ties to secure the mesh down. Here are 2 pics.

Re: Hamster wheel won't turn? I have a pic of it, any ideas.

My crabs haven’t gone into their wheel yet, but the one time I placed my bigger one in there, he crawled almost upside down and the wheel didn’t turn. But I know that the wheel turns and it’s not that. I just think they haven’t tried hard enough to make it move.

Re: Humidity Low in Larger Tank

So I had a large piece of glass here that I cut in two for each side of my 50. Taped the edges so they wouldn’t cut me and also made little hinges out of the masking tape. So far after wetting my moss yesterday my humidity is at 82%. I’m happy with that if it stays around there. I think the crabs wi...
