Those vents aren't actually blocked by the glass. There's a gap. I run a fogger in there often.

The barrier glass I installed at the front of my terrarium has been working well for over two years now. Good luck with your build!

Re: LiveHermitCrabs.com

LHC does/did have Aussies. Several people here at the HCA got them from her. I got some from her a year ago. Other people/companies have imported Aussies to the US before her, as well.

Re: Crabitat Smells Bad

If you have minor areas where it's too wet you can get a few of those small, compressed coco fiber bricks that look like hockey pucks. Doing your best to avoid any crabs underground, dig a narrow pit straight down to the bottom glass and insert the pucks in the wet places and fill the holes back in....

Re: Life spans

landlubber has said she had hers for 7, which is the longest lived straws I've ever heard of. 5 to 6 among expert keepers is considered excellent, although we have two members now (kuza and sugarselections) who have reached 6 years with their straws still alive (to my knowledge), and crabbymom33 ha...

Re: Mice

Sorry to hear about Twix's tumor. One of my sugar gliders has a large tumor in her abdomen that we've been treating for a while. Her vet and I decided against surgery so we're managing it with anti-inflammatory and pain medications. It's not fun:(

My instinct immediately said rug, but I can't be 100% positive without a good frontal picture. Her anatomy, quality of color, and the look of her under-eye smudges seem more like a rug than an E to me.
