Re: What are your crabs up to?

Kinda old, but in response to @CrabbyChelle628 and @Elli Krabooz is an Australian company so those crabs shown are more then likely aussies, I don't think they're E's. they're virtually only exclusive to Australia. Of course I can be fact checked by aussieJJDude who is from australia! They are auss...

Re: Adding Substrate over a Molter

When adding, try to also not move large decor which may disrupt tunnels if you can avoid it.

Re: New pools

Is it watertight, and what type of plastic used? Some plastics can degrade overtime, so enquire about tue plastic type and applications.

Re: Plastic Canvas

Ive never used plastic canvas, or seen anyone use the metallic colours within their tanks so I'm unable to give an accurate comment. Bit likely, the metallic colourants are infused into the plastic polymer, so it is likely to be safe - and shouldn't leach. But hopefully someone with some experience ...

Re: 50 gallon build

I think it could work, particularly with smaller crabs. As they grow, may be a different issue.

Re: 55g tank build (5 years in the making!)

Re: Does This Exist?

I've seen posts on the web of people creating open enclosures for their chameleons, such as a 'Chameleon climbing wall' or 'Chameleon tree'. Dunno the practicality, but they do look cool. Could also set up a nice pond in a corner qnd have a good turtle setup? Something like a smaller turtle like mus...

Re: Shell Care

I've done it on the past. Its messy, but it does work in a pinch. Just use some olive oil on the outside (i like to 'wet' sime paper towel and then rub it on the outside... little goes a long way!). It can be added to the tank immediately after 'polishing'.

Re: Spider plant

You can, but i dunno how the crabs would like eating them. When they die, mine tend to go soft... my crabs prefers more crunchy leaves.

Re: 50 gallon build

Could try an arcylic rod on the insiding of each corner, and weld that into place? Similar if you were building a box out of wood, using the dunno, 2x2 to build the frame, and then plywood on top, drilled into the frame. (Difference being instead of drilling, your chemcially welding?) Sent from my S...

Re: Lighting

The double sided tap I wouldn't trust when exposed to constsnt heat and humidity. It holds, but not with condemnation- has lights fall into my aquarium using same tap.

Re: Snake plant?

I would say a tentative yes. I've come into contact with a member that has a snakeplant with their crabs for a good couple of months... (sorry cant remember the exact timeframe :/ ) without issues. Try to keep it pesticide free, and potted so once the crabs do trash it, can be removed with ease. Sen...

Re: Lighting

If it fits inside the tank (may be a struggle, unless yoy get a smaller unit) could try zip-tying the ballast onto the glass braces. I've done similar, works a treat! :)
