Re: T-rex climbing background?

My crabs love it, though they did shred it over time like mentioned above. I just bought another one then. I use the little 3M removable light hanging clips to keep it up. The Velcro didn't work for me.

Re: Best store (online or IRL) to get Eccies?

The Petcos around here tend to get them, but it's hit or miss. A few years back one store had an entire tank full of them.

Re: Pet Supplies Plus - A Great Place to Buy Crabbies!

The worst is when they think they are doing a great job... Ugh. One of my local pet stores is family-run and they take horrible care of their hermits.

Re: Need opinions please...

It was one that I purchased. I bought it at the same time I bought the tank. It looks very similar to the Zilla one in this picture:

Re: Need opinions please...

I have these sheets on top of a metal screen lid on my 55 gallon. I'd originally bought a thick piece and that warped in no time.

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Tonight the crabby "kids" and I are having stir fry.

Straw mushrooms, baby carrots, water chestnuts and beef. Theirs is getting some cuttlebone instead of rice noodles.

These are some new foods for them - hope they like it! :)
