Re: Running out of time

Haven't been on here in a while so I want to give an update about what happened last year. I found a hermit crab owner in the UK at the last minute who accepted the crabs the day of my flight to the US. Unfortunately, all of the supplies had been packed and shipped already so I just gave him the cra...

Maintaining humidity and substrate moisture

I am having difficulty keeping the humidity and substrate moisture at a constant level. I have an acrylic lid that brings the humidity up to 99% when I put it on, but the substrate dries up to the point where my crabs can't dig. Any suggestions on how I can keep the substrate moist but keep the humi...
