Re: Crabbing Smells: Is there anything I can do?

Original Poster here! I figured out the problem (shortly after originally posting). It was tossing old food in the trash can that made things smell bad. I've been using my garbage disposal in the kitchen sink to dispose of old food since I posted that. I also make sure to take out fresh or raw food...

Re: Crabbing Smells: Is there anything I can do?

I'm not sure what I did with my personal food mix, but somehow my tanks smell like spearmint when I pop the lid now. I wish I could tell you why! I do not have any mint in it, and it's a mix of a ton of different items from my garden, purchased items and leftovers from The Addiction that another me...

The pools are on the left and right. I use doubled up round plastic food storage containers. Once cured, the top bowl of the pools will be switched out.

Re: Glue

They currently have a saltwater and freshwater pool in the tank. These would be prepared before they go in with the hermies. I won't be curing anything inside the tank.

Glue

I have e6000 glue and gel SuperGlue as my options. The aquarium silicone peels off of the round plastic HEB food storage containers way too easily. I want to add SuperGlue to the lip of the bowl and stick sand to it (like the salt on a margherita rim). Aquarium silicone will be used for the rocks th...

Re: Substrate mixing question

Would mixing in a batch or two of the play sand/EE mixture rectify the situation? (Play sand 5:EE 1)

Re: Substrate mixing question

The top fin and super naturals are both very fine sands. I'm guessing I should have used play sand all along. Poo.
