Sometimes I get condensation inside the crabitat, do you wipe it off or leave it?

I leave it unless i want a really good picture. It helps keep the humidity up as it evaporates.

I usually leave it and have noticed that the crabs enjoy drinking the droplets -- very cute to watch!

I leave it for the most part, although I wipe down the glass every couple of weeks since the droplets dry and form a film. Crab logic dictates that even if the water bowls have JUST been refilled, the condensation is tastier, so who am I to take away their fancy drinking source? ;)

I wipe it down when I feed because they get sand in it and it looks dirty having sand stuck to the glass above the sub.
