Re: Using a tote

Many like to get clear totes so that way they cab still look into the tote. But honestly, it dorsnt matter. They all work the same.


The only issue, if you get a darker one, you mau want to mount some light(s) so they can have a proper day/night cycle.

Re: Build Diary - The Curio Crab-inet

Thats interesting. Is the picture going to be outside of the tank? I worry about any exposure of the paint to the crabs.

Re: Air plants

Most air plants to my knowledge are safe. Just to be safe, what exactly were you thinking to purchase? Safe: - bromeliads - tillandsia - mosses - orchids You may need a small 'quarantine' period in case the seller sprayed them with an insecticide. Wash it throughly, qnd repeat it over a month period...

Re: Am I doing this right??

It will hover around 75% when its been in the 'chamber' for a couple of hours. Any major changes is likely due to the humidity in the chamber settling.

If if doesn't sit at 75%, the gauge is either busted or inaccurate.

Re: Misting questions

Its common for the first couple of inches to dry out, but underneath is at a good consistency. I reccmend poking a hole all the way to the bottom along a glass wall, if it holds it shape than it is fine - no need to panic!

Re: Am I doing this right??

To answer both questions, yes. It should read around 75%. I find its best to let it 'run' overnight, so 6 - 8 hours may be will help it equalise

Re: Where to get greensand in Australia?

As far as I'm aware, no anywhere. Only one place lists it for sale, but it doesn't look similar to what they sell in the US (so haven't pull the trigger and purchased it). https://www.riversands.com.au/manganese-greensand And maybe (big if!)

Re: The Shell Removal Experiment

I'm in, interested to see if it will make a difference. My crabs rarely show interest in their shells, so it will be interesting to see if any differences develop. Colony Size - around 6 to 8 crabs. A couple have the same size and shell, so a little hard for me to keep track at times. Species - 1 C....

Re: What shell's do Aussie's prefer?

Thank you! I think I'm going to get some land snail shells, Babylonians and some Japanese land snail shells (Do you think these are okay?) They may not go after the Jap snails shells, but worth the try. Some crabbers say their crabs love them, so who knows really! Best to give them a wide variety t...

Re: Blueberry, Indo & PP crabs

It's okay to keep PP's and an E together, right? Mine seem to love each other! Many have success with the mix, others dont! If its working currently, it should be fine. I forgot to mention, false blueberries (they still labelled as blueberries as they are a rather 'recent' described species, or som...
