Re: 90 gal basic setup

Lighting timers

Hi all! I want to have 1, possibly 2 lamps that turn on during the day and 1 lamp that turns on at night on my tat. I bought a light timer with multiple plugs thinking that each plug could be programmed individually but now I'm thinking that's not how it works! Do you guys know of any timers that ca...

Re: Tank Build Diary

I looked on line at Home Depot for gutter mesh and what they have doesn't look flexible. Its probably something ud want to check out in person. I dont know if I would have guessed this stuff would be flexible by looking at it. The really nice thing about this mesh is that it's flexible but still ve...

Re: Tank Build Diary

That looks amazing. I love that 'lap level' you have going around the tank. Always wanted to do one, but never actually got around to it. Looks amazing in your setup!

Re: Tank Build Diary

Looking awesome! I keep forgetting to ask, what is the mesh you're using in your salt/fresh pools? I like that it bends easy and over the bowls. Craft/crabby mesh can't do that.

Re: Tank Build Diary

Tat's basically done! Although it's going to look alot better when its properly lit. Loving how it came out, this eggcrate stuff is amazing. Of course the crabs are already hard at work trying to tear it all down lol. I might have to add a little support column in the right hand corner. Also looks l...

Re: Hamster wheels

I use command hooks to hang mine upside down like this: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190831/7249c6e064cf4ae7b691d098082fd5db.jpg I’m not too concerned about the metal because most of it is coated in paint, and I’m not directly spraying the wheel with water. Metal itself isn’t harmful to the c...

Re: Tank Build Diary

Looks great! How deep is your substrate? It's hard to tell from the pictures. Right now theres no sub bc the tank isn't set up yet! Its gonna be done tomorrow, I just set them up in some temporary digs overnight since the crabitat at the old house has been broken down. Theres currently paper towel ...

Re: Tank Build Diary

So the gang has been upgraded from a crabby motel to a crabby presidential suite! This should hold everyone in relative comfort overnight. Put the newbies in, everyone seems to be getting along so far, they've already changed shells like 5 times now lol. Man it feels good to see them in this tank! E...

Re: Tank Build Diary

Ok so naturally this is taking me longer than I hoped it would and I really want to take the time to do this right. I've made 2 panels so far, just have to attach the platform(s?) to them and then I think I'm going to call it a night. I realized I have some basic supplies here (heat mat, food, fresh...

Re: Best vacation ever!!

With most of the new crabs we get they all pretty much dig and molt the second their claws hit the substrate. Most usually skip meals and water and just dig. I think maybe keep them in this container overnight and give them food that are beneficial for molting. A good meal before placing them in th...
