Command hooks?

Post by HermieHank » Fri Aug 31, 2018 9:07 am

Has anyone had any luck using Command hooks in their crabitats? I've got a hemp net and some plastic plants I want to affix to the glass. I've been using suction cups, but they come down so often. I was going to upgrade to Command hooks but I'm wondering how they hold up in the humidity long term.

I've heard the Command hooks for the bathroom work well. They're designed to hold up in humidity. I'm about to use some myself.

I also use them with no problem. They make outdoor ones as well.

I personally use the velcro type backing. My humidity stays at 99%. I think the main thing is making sure that the surface is clean before you apply the one that is on the "wall". Then, you apply pressure and don't hang anything on it for at least a couple of minutes. :)

ones that i put along the top of the tank I add a drop of aquarium silicone before sticking them. It gives a little extra hold just in case. I'm also able to remove them when i pull the command hook off like normal. I haven't had any issues with them not coming off after.

If you put silicone in your tank the tank has to be empty of crabs and fumes allowed to dissipate before putting crabs back in.
