How to keep gnats/bugs out of tank?

Has anyone tried carnivorous plants to combat pests? I’ve been thinking about getting a butterwort and placing it somewhere the crabs can’t reach it, but where the gnats will. Thoughts?

Re: 2 male Caribbean Crabs ATL,GA

I am in Birmingham, AL and have a 75 gallon tank that would love to home them. Let me know if they still need a home and maybe we can work something out!

Re: Succulents in my tank

The issue I have had is that the humidity levels are too high for most succulents. Have you considered air plants?

Unsuccessful Molt, large crab (pictures)

Sadly I lost one of my largest crabs to a molt yesterday. I was gone for memorial weekend and all seemed well when I left, but when I got home last night he had very recently passed.

Tunnel Collapse?

I have heard that sometimes crabs can become trapped when this happens and need rescuing or do not survive, and...

Feeding behaviors

Thats a great question! I would guess if the tank conditions are staying the same year round that they would eat the same year round, but I'm really not sure!
