Re: Sandcastle consistency QUESTION

Either distilled or spring can be used to mix substrate, with or without the salt mix. For drinking freshwater, spring is better. For drinking saltwater, either would work.

Tap water is absolutely safe to use for everything if you use a dechlorinator like Prime on it!

Re: Sandcastle consistency QUESTION

If you have a large bucket or bin, I'd recommend mixing it outside of the tank. The sand can scratch the glass, and it's a LOT of work, so the more elbow room you have, the easier it will be. For a 10 gallon, you'll need most, if not all, of that 50lbs. Go slow with the water as it's easier to add m...

Re: I Think I Accidentally Hurt My Crab!

Doesn't sound that unusual an occurrence, really. Aorse has happened, you didn't accidentally rinse her in hot water, or toss her in a boiling pot of water trying to clean the shell. She might be a little shaken up, but these guys can fall out of trees in the wild and be okay. I wouldn't worry.

Without the SD card you're stuck using their free recording service. It's 12 seconds at a time, once every 5 minutes. My SD card slot must be broken on the camera, it will not read any card. Wyze has a subscription service for $1.49 a month that allows for unlimited recording length and no wait betw...

Also, is this more of a problem if their conditions are not correctly maintained, or is this just their personality in general?
It's the crab itself. Some are sweet, some are killer.

Re: Breaking Glass

Hasn't been reported to happen yet! I used to have a custom tank that was three feet tall and they never managed to bounce hard enough to cause damage.

Re: Pantry? Moths

Those do look like pantry moths, or maybe clothes moths. 😕 I can't say I've ever seen this issue in a tank before! The strings may be silk from the caterpillars, or it could be mold growth. Are you positive they are coming from the tank, and not ending up there from another breeding location? You ma...

Re: Is there a way to make non organic food safe?

Washing and peeling can be extremy helpful! Also check out the yearly Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen lists which are published by independent researchers - it lists which vegetables and fruits have been shown to have the most and the least pesticide and fertilizer residue for the year.

Salt is not dangerous to hermit crabs, this food is considered safe.

Re: Tank Upgrade Recommendations

Tetra makes a front opening 75 gallon terrarium, if anyone is interested. Doubtful it's available in Australia, though.

Re: Building an Aquarium Stand

Stands for aquariums and crabs are exactly the same, as the weight will be just about the same. The nice thing about making your own is that you can adjust the height if needed - many of us petite ladies end up with sore armpits while changing water and food because the commercial stands are too high!

Re: Tank Size And Heating

anotherashley14, that exact warning is in our lighting guide for using heat lamps. Okay, so the upgrade from a 10 to a 15 is so small it is really not worth the price. A 20 tall would give you more area for climbing and substrate and has the same footprint as a 15. It's also a standard sized tank an...

Re: Tank Size

Most tanks come with their own black plastic rims, and so long as that is evenly supported then anything solid can act as a stand.
