Re: Rose/flower advice please

I give my crabs rose of sharon, they like a wide variety of the flowers from the safe food list.

Re: I revamped the 50 gallon!

Looks great! I love the topper, I really need to do more research on the different sizes that fit. Your tank turned out awesome! [emoji3059] Thanks! I did add quite a bit of new wood, cork, and extra plants yesterday, here's what it looks like. https://i.imgur.com/reWaKZO.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FA...

My house gets into the eighties and nineties in the summer, so I have a thermostat so I don’t accidentally cook my crabs.

My heaters remain unplugged for the entire summer, and I watch the weather forecast for the night in case it gets chilly unexpectedly.

Re: Heating pad or heat lamp?

I just dislike heating lamps due to the fact that you can't set them down on glass lids or they will crack, and they have a higher chance of drying out the substrate and zapping humidity. It's much easier if you install a heating pad like an ultratherm with insulation if needed. You can buy thermost...

Re: I revamped the 50 gallon!

Your guys will love the deeper substrate! When you need to change the food and water do you just pull the top tank off? We have talked about making a topper for a while now but never got any further than talk. I'm sure the extra room helps spread things out and frees up substrate real estate. I alw...

I revamped the 50 gallon!

I decided to redo the entire tank yesterday afternoon because of how nasty it was getting, and the substrate was a bit dried out so I added brand new and moistened it again. Now we have about fifteen or so inches of playsand and ecoearth in a 29 gallon tank with a 20 long on top of it, and I just ca...

Re: King of the acurite

I have been thinking of hanging mine like this so they could climb on it, they are always knocking it over when I lay it in the topper on the platform.

it is probably grooming itself. dont worry.
No, crabs come further out of their shells to groom, and you'll see their tiny legs in the back moving around, this crab is just sleeping.

Mine have been up down and all around today, it must be the warmth that is causing it!

Re: How do I know if my crabs are defecating?

I find some turds in my tanks sometimes, but the isopods do a good job at keeping them at bay, but occasionally I will find a green poo in the topper from greensand.

Re: Giving E's their own tank?

I only considered separating them so that I could put all ten PP's in the same tank together, and the E's could have their own space.

Giving E's their own tank?

I have two tanks, a 75 gallon tank, and a 29 gallon tank which I added a 20 gallon long on top of, and I was wondering if it would be a better idea to move the two E's I have into the 29 gallon and have all the PP's together in the 75?

Re: Cycling Filter?

No, the amounts are so small that it won't have any effect on anything else. If you use the Dr. Tim's ammonia you probably won't even smell it yourself! I knew that I would only need a few drops to produce a small amount of cycling ammonia, but was just worried of the fumes being near the crabitat ...
