Re: How often?

How often do you clean your tank? I am now worrying I am being too hands off with my colony. I haven't done a deep clean ever. I have two tanks, 8 crabs, established for 1 year now. I found what I suspect are food mites on two of my crabs yesterday, and now I am wondering if i need to be cleaning m...

Re: Rabbit poo

This is probably a little bit off topic but... When I learned that hermit crabs could eat poop, the next day I automatically asked one of my really close friends (she has a guinea pig) for some poop. Being the very weird people we are, she didn't question it. In fact, I actually think she was reall...

Re: I have leaves growing out of a cork log

Here's a few photos of my second attempt. I put the leaves a lot closer together. one two three four five In case anyone is wondering, I got the leaves from plants which had already fallen apart.

Re: I have leaves growing out of a cork log

Do you use anything to get them to stay in place - glue? In some cases I drill all the way through. But some of the ...

I have leaves growing out of a cork log

For the longest time I've wanted to have plastic plants in the crabitat without the stems. My crabs keep grabbing a stem and knocking a plant upside down. (I don't like suction cups.) A couple days ago I came up with the idea of drilling holes into the cork logs and inserting the leaves in the hole....

Re: does any one know if this premixed substrate is safe/goo

It is safe, however it is much more cost effective to mix your own substrate with playsand and eco earth. Sent from my LGLS665 using Tapatalk I know but there is no where to purchase play sand near me which is why i buy the pre mix stuff. I tried every Lowe's hoke depot and Walmart none carry play ...
