I initially bought one of the tropic-aire things and it didn't do anything. The humidifier worked really well and I never got the impression that the hermies were stressed out by it. I usually had the timer set for about 15 minutes at a time. If you get a humidifier, mine was fairly small, take it w...

When I had my 40 g with a screen top, I used a small humidifier from Wal-Mart and rigged the top with a plastic pipe fitting and rubber tubing. The tubing led into the tank through a small hoe in the lid. I had everything set on a timer, so depending on the time of the year I would adjust the freque...

ModPodge cleans up with water, so I am not sure if it would hold up in a humid environment.
I have used aquarium sealant to repair a large broken piece of decoration and it is holding very well. You might try it for whatever it is you are making.

The guy that built my water dragon tank, painted the back and side walls, as well as the pond. Afterwards, he covered everything with fiberglass, which has worked really well.

It has to be aquarium sealant. Anything else is not safe and will leach toxins into the water.

IMO a tank in a crabitat would not work out to well since it would be small and very high maintenance, neat idea though. You are right about the maintenance issue. I have had a nano tank for the last three years and it is much harder to keep than the 75 g freshwater tank. However, I think it could ...

Are you planning on making a sort of nano tank out of the saltwater pond? If so, and you are planning on putting live rock in the pond, I would think they should be ok, since the MHC's could hide from the LHC's in crevices in the rock, if need be. What type of filter are you planning on using for th...

Wow poncho, the pool from home depot looks awesome!
I will have to go tomorrow and look at the local store to see if they sell them.
So much nicer than the plastic container I am using now.

Isn't it funny how we can get so giddy about these guys?! About 6 weeks ago I found 5 E's at a small rinky dink pet store in MO, about two hours from here. We were in that town for another reason, but me, always prepared... I had my transport cage with EE in the car, ready to be used. So after we go...

The ceramic heat emitters are great, but I think even the smallest might be too strong for a 10 g.

Here is a link that explains it detailed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brackish_water I basically wing it most of the time and just fill the pond with freshwater and add a little bit of pre-mixed saltwater to it, just to get the concentration up a little. I do have a refractometer with which I can m...
