Re: Can I do a tank topper

I decided to try adding a topper, I had an old fish tank laying around. I'm not exactly sure how many gallons it is, but it was NOT the same size as my existing tank. With some help from boyfriend and his tools, I carved this out of some spare wood. The smaller tank can rest on this and cutting out ...

Re: New babies

I do have my two UTHs insulated. My insulation covers the whole back and one side. I think one of them is too small, I should probably replace it with a larger size. Are the ultratherms insulatable? My house gets quite cold in the winter, so I need to be able to wrap them. I'm relieved to hear that ...

Re: Ideas for decor?

I'm a fan of more fake plants, especially vines, and varied-length cholla wood put in at different angles/inclines. I especially had fun crafting some platforms and a connecting bridge out of popsicle sticks. Looks nice in the tank and gives them a second level :D You could also put up a climbing ma...

Re: Lighting suggestions

I have a 10-gallon, working on a 5-gallon topper for some extra room. I really like your clamp-style light, especially having the timer function different light settings. Do you have it ray down from above, or coming in from a side?

Lighting suggestions

Hey everyone! I am looking to buy some kind of lighting for my crabs. The room they live in stays pretty dim, and two sides of my tank are covered in insulation over my UTHs, so I'm concerned they aren't getting the right light cycle. I'm looking for something that sits outside of the tank and does ...

Question about owning new crabs

I recently acquired two Es. When I put my largest one, Treble, in the tank for the first time, I gave him a quick dip and set him on a raised platform off of the sub. He crawled straight into a coco hut on that platform, probably to de-stress. The problem is, he has not moved from this spot since I ...

Re: Big holes in sub

I would want to smooth out the holes for aesthetic reasons (and I like tracking overnight movements), but I'm afraid of messing up their tunnels!

Re: New babies

As far as temps - I let my temps go up to 86, but never higher. Es definitely love the warmer temps, and the PPs don't mind it either. Just make sure the humidity stays up there too. :) My humidity is ridiculous, I can't get it to go lower than 90 xD But my temp is always just shy of 80, despite ha...

Re: Spider Crab!

When I brought home my first crab and put him in his tank, I placed him on this popsicle stick bridge I made. He immediately scuttled to the side and started walking over the edge. I panicked and was like omg hes gonna fall and wreck himself, but thankfully before I could try to stop/"save" him, I w...
