Re: Temp ranges and times for rescue flight--urgent!

I don't want to use hand warmers since they will be at 90 degree (F) temps for some time before, during, and after the 3-hour hops. What do you think? Think of them like a UTH, they run hot, but less than a couple of inches away the temperate drops quickly. (UTH can run over 100F, yet a couple of i...

Re: Temp ranges and times for rescue flight--urgent!

The insulation of the boxes will help maintain temps. As would using a couple of hand warmers to keep the temp up. IMO. They should be fine.

Re: Lily turf/monkey grass

Lily turf. As in Liriope sp., such as mondo grass/monkey grass? It should be fine, it's not known to be toxic to any other animal. There are some reports of eating large quantities of the flower/seeds in dogs leading to upset stomachs, but nothing major. Once again, should be fine. Sent from my SM-G...

Re: I guess its offical... an upgrade?

I feel like finding a couple of sticks of real bamboo is going to be super hard. I know it grows fast but I think it will be ok to just shear it back every now and then, bamboo is super hardy (or so I've heard!)

Re: What is on my crabs joints?

Yeah, its normal. The funny thing is that, its not actually hair. Its actually part of the exoskeleton, forming a hair like look. (scientific speaking, it is refered to as the 'setae'). It is used primarily for touch.

Re: Pothos?

It's on the unsafe list due to containing oxalates. The effect on crabs is virtually unknown, but basically oxalates in mammals/reptiles causes calcium to coagulate and can strip the blood of calcium, which can lead to calcium deficiency of muscle tissues and bones. This however, depends on the plan...

Re: Saltwater Pool Upgrade! Crabmas in July

Oh my, what on earth is that airline tubing network!? :hlol: I was thinking similar too, that the change of water would of kicked into motion. It makes sense for me, since in the wild I believe the release of eggs is usually timed with tidal activity - where they would be 'washed' out to sea... Fres...

Re: What species are my 2 crabs?

Both PP's (C. clypeatus). Both look a little pale, which is common for new and smaller crabs. After a couple of moults and a varied diet, they being to colour up nicely.

Re: Is my crab too anti-social?

He sounds like a medium-large. Honestly I would hold off on getting another crab due to your tank size - and the crabs prior history - since they do require a bit of space per crab to be happy. If your set out on getting another crab or two - the care requirements hardly change - just as most a larg...

I didn't know that! Yikes! Yeah. Me neither until I was talking to a group on a fish forum about boiling rocks to add to an aquarium, and they nearly had a fit.

Re: Is my crab too anti-social?

It certainly is a tough decision. With known attackers, it's certainly hard to gauge their aggression. Some crabs for whatever reason just dont mix with others, and do best alone. If you do decide to get more crabs, keep in mind the current tank size. How big is it? Can it support another crab or tw...
