Re: Humidity

Please definitely read the care guides. Mesh lid should be covered with press n seal or plastic wrap to retain humidity. IMO glass lids are the best. You cannot use any heat lamps with glass lids though, they will crack. Substrate should be 6 inches or 3 times the height of your largest crab (whiche...

You can also add "bubblers" Air stones/to your water pools and moss pits to help boost humidity. Good luck!

Re: Little Gnats[emoji51]

Hello :) I'm sorry that you are having trouble with gnats. First of all, try to remove the food when the hermits are less likely to eat it. Then, try to stick to dry foods also. Vinegar traps work well. You can use what you mentioned. I do like the fly tape - however - it is dangerous to use in the ...
