Air Rocks - How Much is Too Much?

Post by Asheka » Sat May 09, 2015 8:09 pm

I hooked up the air rocks today, trying to make sure temp and humidity stay constant before bringing cabbies home, and the pump is quite strong. I had oneattachment piece that can adjust the air flow (I don't know what it's called) and I have it hooked up to the larger shell shaped one as it was almost frothing the water. While the long one doesn't produce nearly as much air, it's still bubbling a fair amount. I wonder if I should get anotherattachment andlimit thbubbles, or will the crabs mind? I can try to get a quick video, if it helps to see exactly how much.

This is a pretty bubbly/strong airstone and the crab hugged it for like 15 minutes, lol. I think they like it.

Love that picture. I had time to kill this evening, so took a quick video. Lighting isn't the best cuz it's on my phone.

They look fine to me but maybe I just have funny crabs that like water jet massages.

:lol: Well, I can always get one of those attachments later if they don't seem to want to spend time in it. I hope they'll like it though.

Looks good to me too.

My bubblers are hooked to the same pump so I had to have a gang valve to balance the bubbles. Without it, one side was way stronger than the other. My crabbies don't seem to mind the bubbles and I've seen other crabbers pics/videos that seem like their crab was actually enjoying the bubbles. :D

Awesome! :D Thanks so much guys, maybe I'm paranoid, but I want to make sure everything is "perfect" this time.

Since they wander in and out of the surf I think strong water and bubbles probably seems much more natural to them!
