Re: Tall tank layer ideas!

The shelving for organizing cabinets is pretty handy too...can get several styles that have 2-3 shelves. They're metal but coated in that white rubbery plastic stuff.

Re: I don't know where exactly to put this.

I think the hair is just a sign of a recent molt...they come up with sharp nails and little black hairs.

Re: Naples and MyGann

That's good to hear about MyGann! I just ordered 2 turbos (twins to a couple of yours [emoji1]) today from them.

Re: 40g Tank Broke

:-( I'll be moving soon and I was worried about moving the 40g with the sub in it but 3 of my 4 are buried now and 2 of them went down within the last 4 days.

Re: My CL post worked!!

Thankfully (for now) there are only 4 and they have pretty distinct personalities so...fingers crossed ;-)

Re: I don't know!

It took my crabs several days to explore all the stuff in their new tank and each one wandered around at their own rate. Or they could have partied it up the first night while I was sleeping [emoji1][emoji38]

Re: My CL post worked!!

I think they go into shell overdrive when we bring them home. With a shortage in the wild they don't get giant piles of suitable shells. Happy hermits. :) Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk For sure. This morning he was up bright and early in a different shell than when I went to bed and then tri...

Re: HCP isn't as wonderful as everyone thinks

I have nothing intelligent to add, I just find the idea of glittery/sparkly crab poop to be highly amusing. #lowbrowthursdayatmyplace Sent from my LG-D850 using Tapatalk I'm glad you chimed in with that lmao I was envisioning Team Edward hermit crabs all glittery [emoji38] Zoo mom of 3 cats, a dog,...

Re: My CL post worked!!

It's funny...he studied the magpies intensely and tried on practically every shell I own but he settled on a really pretty turbo and wore it for hours. But I just woke up to him lumbering around in a gigantic Apple murex [emoji85] he's very indecisive apparently ;-) I just got a decent shipment of m...

Re: What size of heat pad needed

Heat pad should be on the back of the tank. How big is the one you have and is it keeping your tank at least at 75 degrees all the time? You can mist your substrate to keep it moist...think fresh de chlorinated water only. It should be sand castle consistency when put in the tank. Zoo mom of 3 cats,...

Crabitat Heating

Huntley I'm going to tag onto your thread if that's ok ;-) I've got my temp at 78-80 but I'd like to see it at 80-82 and consistent. Right now I have an Ultratherm that covers the full tank back and it's insulated with foil & foam board and taped up to within an inch of its life to prevent any heat ...

Re: Ok, here goes :-)

Sweet...thank you :-) I may switch some greens out for some other flowers I have somewhere to add some more color but [emoji29]

And I love what you did with the food dish and the flower wreath! [emoji1]

Re: Ok, here goes :-)

Thought a new crab called for me to actually install some of the greenery I've been avoiding ;-) Do y'all think this is too much? I'm a little worried that they don't have enough open walking space now...and I'm thinking the 55g I saw on CL for $50 this morning is looking mighty good [emoji85] http:...
