Re: Plastic canvas mesh?!

Walmart has 6 for $3.87, if you get a chance to order or can check to see which stores close to you may have them. (All of ours are super centers and all carry them.) https://www.walmart.com/ip/Darice-10-5- ... t/36246080

Re: coconut butter

It's great for popping popcorn! The crabs absolutely love it, and it's the same stuff movie theaters use so we love it, too.

That's fascinating, wodes--what do you do differently with the Ruggie?
I feed every three to four days, on the same schedule as my crested gecko, since they get the same food. (My crested tends to get overweight easily, so he's on a controlled diet, too.)

Re: Plastic canvas mesh?!

Our Walmart still sells it as well! You can also order online with free shipping to your store, or what we do is order enough dry groceries to get it to their $35 minimum and get it all sent to the house for free. It's stuff we would be buying anyway so it's not impulse buys.

Re: Could my IKEA Dresser Hold a 10g Tank With About 75 ish lbs?

If you have someone strong enough to lift it gently, you should be able to get away with just sliding the board under it without having to empty it. It's not the safest thing but it is doable. I've had my husband (who is 6'5" and can lift me) carry a 10 gallon full nearly to the top of sand and molt...

Some of the AC Moores are becoming Michaels. We just had that happen with Pat Catans, and now there are two Michaels not even ten minutes apart.

Re: Accidentally brought home hermit!

Unfortunately because of the location he came from, this is going to be a marine hermit crab. They can survive for a few weeks out of water in lucky situations, but they need a fully established saltwater aquarium in order to survive long term. Please look into local aquariums, fish stores, aquarium...

Mine only get the liver (raw) and they go nuts for it. I use the rest of the giblets for gravy!

Re: Turkey day!

Moved to Food. 😊 Not today's dinner, which is a chicken because my turkey is still rock hard. 🤦‍♀️ I marinated it with lots of onions and garlic in buttermilk so I'll pass on the crabs getting any. When we fix the turkey this weekend though, I'm going to marinate it like an orange chicken, so the cr...

Re: Could my IKEA Dresser Hold a 10g Tank With About 75 ish lbs?

Yeah! If you can get like a 1/2 inch plywood sheet to fit on top the dresser, that would be ideal and would negate much of the risk.

I always worry about MDF as well, it's just not great with standing weight on it.

Re: Lizard freeze dried food okay?

Dry is better, they take their time eating and with the heat of the tank it will mold quickly if moistened.

Re: Substrate concern

You'll have an easier time with maintenance if you add some playsand to the mix. EE by itself is fine, but it can be challenging to keep at the right moisture levels. The sand helps change the consistency and slows down evaporation. Either of the playsands would be safe. The natural one sounds like ...

Re: HELP! HE'S LOSING ALL OF HIS LEGS!!!!

Thank you for rescuing him!! They drop legs in an effort to conserve energy when they are dying. It's almost always fatal, but sometimes there is a miracle and they manage pull through. My guess is he was already under too much stress. If the house dropped below 68 degrees at any point during that w...

Re: Crabs not growing

Crabs grow at completely different rates! I've had some triple in size in a single molt, but others who did not noticeably grow at all. Molts that are repairing any damage or injuries take a lot of energy and reserves, so major growth is usually on hold for those. What usually happens in my tanks is...
