New tank & need some help with heating

Hello fellow crabbers! I have not posted on here in a few years due to some life changes but I am back & ready to dive back into the world of discussing crab things with other crabbers. I just moved & upgraded my 53 gallon tank to a 75 gal & I'm having a tough time with heating. Previously i had use...

Thanks Rachel [emoji3] well he finally changed out of the spiral shell and I took it right out and boiled it. It was a really old damaged shell. And they were hiding d...

Re: No Power

I usually keep a ton of hand warmers on hand just incase. You can get them at a pharmacy or sporting stores. Usually come two in a pack. You can tape them to the tank and wrap a security blanket around the whole tank. Use warm towels on the lid. I'm glad your Power is back on. But this is a good bac...

Re: Coconut castle DIY

So I decided to go for the craft wire... I figured it may hold it together better then hemp... but I could always change it later if I need to... so this is what I picked up.

Re: found naked/ dead in salt water bowl

thank you everyone. I just hate it when they die... I try so hard to save lives, and when I loose one it just feels like I messed up somehow. which I know cannot be true because I do everything pretty much by the book. its just weird, knowing that you did everything but still some lives can not be s...

Coconut castle DIY

So I have found a website through Pintrest called PetDIYs.com and found instructions on how to make your own coconut castle out of three young coconuts that you gut, bake and put together. Its pretty neat, so I gathered all the supplies and started making it and may I say I have really enjoyed it. F...

Re: Which fogger/mister to get?

I have the reptifogger with mine to, I have it hooked up to the hrogrotherm so when the humidity drops bellow 80% it automatically turns itself on. but the reservoir is small so I have to refill it often. so for a 500 gallon it may not work well for you

Re: Mite?
