Re: Is this okay?

I just saw "Terrarium Top - Glass Inserts For Exo Terra® Terrariums" for sale through NE herp supplies. (About half way down the page here - http://www.neherpetoculture.com/enclosures ) If you don't have somewhere nearby to custom size a glass/plexiglass panel, you might be able to use one of these ...

Beautiful set up and beautiful crabs. Well done! I am quite jealous, as are my crabs. :)

Re: Is this okay?

Not to hijack this thread, but I'm curious about people putting their crabs' iso tanks into the main tank. Wouldn't that still run a risk of transferring parasites if present?

Re: New Owner New Crabs, Help please!

Hi there. I'm glad you've been reading up. It sounds like you're doing the best that you can with these guys to become informed. You're right that they'll often appear immobile, but I hate to say it, if the crab smells fishy, then he's probably not alive. Double check that he is the source of the sm...

Re: Is grey sand a sign of bacterial bloom?

Tanins would stain it a tea color. Others are right that it would smell like rotten eggs if it were an anaerobic bacterial bloom. If you don't have the odor, you're probably clear of that. Be careful, though. Anaerobic bacteria releases methane and other (potentially lethal) gasses. Everyone's right...

Re: Worm Composting/Vermiculture

I'm sure it's thought about, but I'm not sure whether it's 100% safe or a calculated risk. I know that amphibian owners are often more concerned with bleaches (such as in most white paper towels) than newsprint. My guess is that the worms don't really ingest too much of the paper; it's there for the...

Re: Worm Composting/Vermiculture

I think that, if you're looking to use the castings (rather than the worms themselves), then you're absolutely right; it would be extra important to use crab-friendly materials in the compost. My thinking is that, in collecting the castings, you're likely to pick up small particulates of other thing...
