Re: Help Redesign 40G Crabitat

Do you have a way of heating the tank? Also how deep is your sub?

I was on vacation w my family and we came home with a crab. Sound familiar? Thought so. I did quick research and realized the KK th...

Re: Smallest ultratherm

I'm giving my 10 gallon tank to a friend that just purchased 3 crabs on vacation. I'm also giving her some other extra supplies I have. Once there are 6 inches of substrate, it leaves 4 inches of empty space. That gives the dimensions 4"×19" for a heater. There are no ultratherms close to that size...

Re: Safe silicone?

Like everyone else said, there should be no referral to mold resistance, mold inhibitor, mold whatever. I was looking for Silicone most recently as well to reseal a tank. This actually leaves you with very few choices. Most likely, the following types don't have mold inhibitors in their "basic" ver...

Thanks! There is some silicone where the crabs could eat it. Do you think I should cut that off?

I can’t tell, but it says 100% silicone and I think silicone is naturally mold free.

Yes, I’m using it for a DIY popsicle craft. I will let it dry for a couple of days before putting it in

Re: UTH my hermit crabs are cold!!!

Where do you keep the UTH? I would keep it at the back of the aquarium and I personally have two. A large one that covers most of the back and one on the side of the tank as well. Also I provide natural lighting. I am honestly unsure what’s best there :-/ maybe someone with more experience may have...

Re: UTH my hermit crabs are cold!!!

What is your gauge reading? I struggled keeping my crabs warm and humid and finally bought a large UTH that almost covered the entire back of the aquarium. Then I started using Saran Wrap on top and ever since my heat and humidity has been perfect. What are you covering the tank with? Sent from my ...
