Mushrooms? In my tank?

So I haven't cleaned out the top layer of my tank for a while (but I clean here and there). Last night and today my crabs made a major mess and I found mold and a large clump of mushrooms growing? I'm going to clean out the mold and excess food but are these mushrooms safe to keep in the tank? I did...

Re: What in the heck, I have isopods in my tank!

I haven't seen any out in the open since the one on the cork. I'm a bit afraid of lifting up any pieces of cork around where I found the isopods because all the pieces are very large and my crabs love grabbing onto them. I know I have a lot of Porcellio Spinicornis isopods around my house, so I'm ju...

Re: What in the heck, I have isopods in my tank!

You haven't added any new wood to the tank? That would be interesting if there were isopod eggs in the moss that somehow survived packaging, if that is possible... Nope! I also just bought the moss on Sunday so I highly doubt that that's what they're from. I did rinse the cork off a few months ago ...

What in the heck, I have isopods in my tank!

I was misting my tank last night for a little boost of humidity and I noticed something crawling on a large chunk of cork. I thought it was just my mind playing tricks on me so I ignored it. Now over 12 hours later, I saw another one. I think these are isopods in my tank even though I haven't ever a...

Re: Setting up a 157 gal tank!

That would be unstable and probabky wouldn't hold the tank up. You're best off either moddifying the current stand OR making a whole new one which can support the weight of the completed tank.

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

In dish one I had raw salmon, some river shrimp and a few saskatoon berries (all were frozen and defrosted in the tank) - the shrimp were a hit

Dish two has assorted veggies (carrots, celery, bell peppers, and cucumbers)

Re: dumbest things people have said about your crabs/other p

"Are they pets or are you going to eat them?" "What do they taste like?" Just a few comments on some pictures of my crabs I posted on twitter. I made the mistake of mentioning a mildly well know person on twitter beacuse he retweeted a few pictures of my crabs... oh boy the comments people made. Lik...

Re: Exo terra tank topper question

The top of an exo terra does not seem strong enough to support the weight, especially in the front over the doors. After carefully adding on another tank today, I can confirm that most exoterra tanks do seem every flimsy at the top over the doors. One tank is very flimsy, while the other seems to b...

Re: Exo terra tank topper question

I tried to just flip it as is, but the tank was sitting the the inner lip thing of the tank frame and wouldn't open. I just used a glass blade (with water running over it) and cut out most of it. I just picked out all the remaing glass and washed the entire tank for ten minutes with a hose. I filed ...

Re: If I won the lottery..

First I would divide the money into savings and spending (intrest would sure add up over time! I could buy a house in the future or pay for collage). The spending would be %25 to assorted local animal charities, %25 for funding my musical hobby and the rest would go towards my pets. I would move my ...
