Forgot to mention... I have a 90 gallon and it's so heavy that if it ever needs to be moved from its current location one of the following will have to happen: 1. Hire movers 2. Break the tank up with a sledgehammer and carry it out in pieces I cannot stress enough how heavy a glass 90 gallon tank i...

Re: Tupperware Containers as pools?

Do you have a tupperware container as a pool for your hermie? If not what do you use? I have built-in pools with inserts so I can completely remove them when necessary. I think I have the best of both worlds. Is it plastic or glass? plexiglass, silicone sealant, gravel Do you have a filter in it or...

If you cut out the screen you'd have nothing left. The reptarium is just a fabric sleeve with a zippered door. It has no structure and it's completely separate from the pvc frame. The pvc frame (even if you buy higher quality pvc poles to build your frame) is nowhere near strong enough to support gl...

Sorry I missed the part about the glass stones being meant for aquariums. I'm paranoid about any kind of iridescent coating since I heard about the incidents with it on plastic. People were putting those plastic wind-spinner things that have an iridescent coating into bird and sugar glider cages as ...

I have a 260 rept for my sugar gliders but I don't understand what you're trying to do. The rept cover is just a big zippered screen envelope that slides over a pvc frame. The pvc frame supplied by the company is flimsy and made of brittle, poor-quality pvc. I built my own rept frame out of pvc from...

Sorry, I have to disagree on this issue. I know for a fact that the iridescent coating on plastic can kill birds and small mammals. Because of that, I would not trust an iridescent coating on glass, especially since the product you're using wasn't intended for use with pets.

My first E, Jack, turned electric blue a couple molts ago. She's more of a golden brown now with blue creases. She eats an outrageously varied diet, molts often, and is growing like a monster. http://i41.tinypic.com/jq0xtj.jpg http://i41.tinypic.com/3509rwi.jpg http://i41.tinypic.com/1et075.jpg http...

Thanks for all the responses! Mello- Nope, no way am I giving up Jack. He's got the most perfect E looks and personality. He's so outgoing and sweet but he holds the championship belt in tank trashing. I can only have the expensive locking type of hook/caddy suction cups in the tank because he can p...

One of my crabs, a medium PP, went into an absolute panic for hours when he resurfaced after molting. He came up voluntarily and had finished successfully molting. I'm not sure what that craziness was all about but he dug himself down for a few hours the next day and came up that night acting calm a...

5 Crabs, 5 Molts (w/ pics)

I have five hermit crabs and all five have successfully molted within the past three months. Here's a picture of each crab post-molt with a listing of his name, size/type, length of molt, and extra info. The flash on my camera washes out their colors a bit but I managed to get a decent picture of ea...

She looks great and that shell is beautiful. Did you get it at one of the online crabby shops? I'm waiting for my first molter, a PP about the same size as Clary, to finish eating his exo and re-emerge. I hope he molts as beautifully as your gal.
