The Fluker’s heat mats can be insulated. You can also insulate the sides of your tank that don’t have a UTH attached. I insulate my heat mats, and in winter I also insulate one wall of the tank that doesn’t have a heat mat. Just that added insulation increases the temperature by at least 10 degrees...

Re: Here it goes again with the dying crabs again

I had a large aquarium with no tank heater because the room temperature was always around 75 degs F. So I went and boug...

Humidity question

Is it ok that the humidity fluctuate from the mid 70’s to the mid 80’s all day long?? My digital humidity/temp likes to read different numbers through out the day. The temp like to between 75-79 but, i had the humidity read one time 71 then later in the day 81.
