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!

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...

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.

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...

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.

[mention]wodesorel [/mention] That would be such a great size! I may get the 75g for my next setup. Any idea where it can be purchased? I can’t find anywhere locally...possibly somewhere online?

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!

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...
