Re: Post your 20 gallon tanks!

Awesome! Tanks seem so expensive and hard to find. My brother has a leopard gecko in a 20 gallon long so I'm hoping he upgrades his gecko this year and I can have the 20 gallon.

Post your 20 gallon tanks!

I've had a 10 gallon tank for my small crabs for the past few years and it's definitely worked for them but I've wanted to upgrade for the longest time. I'm hoping later this year I can get a 20 gallon long tank. I kind of like seeing the all natural decorating of some tanks but then I also want a h...

Re: PetSmart Hermit Crabs

Before I knew too much about crabs I got mine from my previous local Petsmart. Not the best care but those crabs are all doing well over 2 years later.

Re: Questions About Feeding

I did a big first order from the Hermit Crab Patch a year ago this month and I'm yet to even being close to running out of the foods I bought, and that's saying something because that's what I feed my crabs (a variety of course) 95% of the time. Definitely recommend, crabs go crazy for their food!

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

I'll be getting the small heating mat...I don't know as you guys said if it will be quite enough, but I might be upgrading in February so I do not want to spend too much on a heating mat if I'll be moving my crabs in less than a month.

Re: Enclosures that aren't tanks?

Thanks for the info! Do you know if Petsmart runs any $1 per gallon sales?

Enclosures that aren't tanks?

I want to upgrade my crabs from their 10 gallon tank, as I want more crabs, I want to do more natural decor, and of course my current babies deserve more room and won't be small forever. Tanks are all good, but they can be pricy and totes look pretty handy and cheap to have, but has anyone used anyt...

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

I live in Georgia so even though summers get very hot winters get very cold! In the 20's and 30's here this week, which I think is cold anyways. :lol: I think I'll likely order this UTH. It's a little costly, but the main thing that would hold me back is that I might upgrade my tank in February.

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

There's a 12 watt Fluker's heat mat that's 11x11 inches. Would that be what I'm looking for?

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

I'm looking at the Fluker's large heat mat right now. It appears to be the most reliable besides the Ultratherm.

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

Thanks for the response! I know the Ultratherms sound great but I don't think I'll be paying for one, lol. :D Anyone here with ideas let me know!

Re: Heating 10 gallon tank with light?

I've used a few different UTH's from Petsmart. I handle with care but still they just stop working. Do moonlight bulbs provide heat? Also besides Ultratherm what is a UTH brand you''d recommend?
