So I try to limit it to once a day when I add food and water the moss on the wood which will never becomes established with crabs snacking on it.

Re: 65 Gallon New Crabitat!

They also make great places to attach ropes and other stuff too. The only downside is that the Flukers rods only stretch to 15". With...

Re: Fish

Its a risk, but yes you can. Internal issues can arise and lead ti a subsequent fish death, and can happen rather quickly.

Re: Two crabs dead in their pool with no shell!

As soon as I heard it got up to 40C, I knew you were from Australia. Haha, onky Australia does it put you on a slow roast.


I'm interested as well, as it may be a temp related issue, it may be due to other factors.

Re: Temperature high’s and lows
