Re: Crabitat humidity and temp (cold weather)

Re - insulating a tank with under tank heaters mounted on the sides or back. If it's a Ultratherm (which you attach to the glass with electrical tape), you can put insulation over top of it.

Re: Hermit crab and cat - how to protect crab

I have two cats and I haven't had any problems within the four months I've had the crabs. One of my cats is fourteen, so she doesn't care, and the other who is three heard them making noises one night, stared intently at them for a while, and lost interest.

Mine did this as well.

Re: My First Post!

Ironically enough, I think I jinxed myself when I said that they couldn't reach the sensors :lol: Today I came home to find Friday climbing the ridge of the tank lid. She made her way to the sensors and climbed around on them for a while. I have a weird setup around the lid rim to keep humidity in u...

Re: Florida Shells and Gifts

No problem! All the shells were round mouth turbos (so if you have Es or other species you'd need other shapes, I think they may make other bundles, but I haven't looked)

Re: About to dig up SIX CRABS

Man, it must be so annoying that the crabbies had to molt right before you had to move. We love them but sometimes they just have to drive us crazy.

Re: Crabitat humidity and temp (cold weather)

It's not exactly bubble wrap. It's Duct Insulation, the kind that you would use in your house. You can buy it at pretty much any hardware store. I tape it over the pad that's stuck to the tank. I have a ten gallon ultratherm AND a twenty-thirty one. As for your humidity problems, I can't help you th...

Re: Live Plant Set Up

Do you put the spider plants in a pot in the tank or directly in the sub? I have a few spider plants that are just sitting on our windowsill (like any other potted plant, I guess) that I would love to add. I just hope I have the space.

Re: Video Cameras in Crabitats

Really cool! I have a Raspberry Pi camera set up and programed by my dad to take a picture every ten minutes. Your pictures look pretty cool too! Here's a picture that mine took:

Re: Crabitat humidity and temp (cold weather)

Hey! I was in almost the same position as you were a few months ago. I have a ten gallon and had the Ultratherm ten-twenty gallon heater. My temp wouldn't raise above about 78. I got the thirty-forty heater and put that on, and it helped raise the temp a few degrees. I put a towel on the top to keep...

Re: Molting again

I have two small-medium crabs and Jarvis went down for a molt, came back up, wandered around for a month, and went down again exactly two months from the first time he went down. I'd say it's normal.

Re: Substrate

It may just be the eco earth. My sub smells musty and sandy all the time.

Re: Is my crab dead?

So sorry... it's unfortunate that these things happen. Although this one didn't make it at least the rest of them went to someone who knows the proper care.
