Re: Which live plants are best?

I have been trying chia seeds in my habitat so that they can have a lovely snack when they sprout. My goal is to have a small, thick patch of chia growing in the corner of my larger tank that they can munch and mangle all they want. I throw a pinch of organic, GMO-free seeds into the substrate, give...

Which live plants are best?

I saw a post written by ShinyDragonfly about which plants are safe for a crabitat. I decided to try to get a list going of the best live plants to grow in a crabitat based on size, origin, edible vs. toxic, and most of all durability! Post your luck (or failure, we all need a mistake or two to learn...

Re: Live plants

Does anyone have a list of the best plants to grow in a crabitat? I'll make a separate post about this.

Re: Live plants

When I get my new tank (hopefully soon) I want to do this thing that really has more of a background appeal rather than practicality. I have this plant with droopy vines and big leaves. (They are a common household plant that I don't know the name of) I want to set it on top of the habitat and let t...

I would have LOVED to get a video and have some comedians do a voice-over for the whole thing! Haha!

Re: Decoration recommendations?

Go hit up Wal-Mart for some fake flowers and burlap. You can make beautiful, Hawaiian-inspired hammocks with that, a few suction cups, and some hot glue. I'll be making some today if I have time so I'll make a post about it.

Re: Exotic species care

I think the term "exotic" is based on perception. If it doesn't originate in your home country it's labeled foreign. Since they are desirable, a nicer, more flattering term is used (thus we have an "exotic" breed") Sent from my SM-S320VL using Tapatalk Also, I think abundance plays a part in this. ...

Re: Upgrading from tote to tank

^^ To emphasize the cost of mine... All tanks were purchased used off the sites I provided earlier. * I paid $125 for my 90G with no stand or hoods and I had to drive 3 hrs there and back to get it... Bad deal but at the time all I could find! * 3 months later... I paid $115 for my bamboo tank (120...

And I almost forgot LaBelle she is my most photogenic baby! Look at her posing on a lily flower.

Re: Depressed, Naked and possibly dead/molting?

Good News! (I think) I heard some rustling around the habitat a few nights ago and today I got too curious and lifted the cork log and found Judy still in her shell. I watched for a bit to look for signs of wiggling or any movement and lo and behold, she scooted away from me! She has been under that...

Re: Upgrading from tote to tank

Might have already said this but you could also check CraigsList, OfferUp, or LetGo. Search aquarium, reptile, fish tank, terrarium, or just tank... Most come with 'usable' accessories often times at a cheaper price than new! Sent from my HTC6515LVW using Tapatalk I paid only $230 for it plus tax a...
