Re: QUESTIONS

Here's an answer to your Repti-Rain question: I once got one when I had just gotten my 20 gal. The thing klonked out in a week. It was a total waste of money for me. I've heard of some success with it, but I would now steer clear of it.

Re: Crab Molting? Need help plsssss

Probably destressing, but a molt is likely too.



EDIT: They could really be doing anything. Just because they're buried doesn't mean there molting.
