Re: Crabitat Update!

Where did you get the wood from? Both pieces are beautiful!!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk The mopani wood actually came with a 36" x 18" x 18" Exoterra that I bought from Craigslist, the tank was at a super low price so I bought it despite not being able to put anything in it for a...

Re: Surface Molt Questions

Hello! I responded with P&S. 1. What kind of substrate is used in your tank and how deep is it? I have a mixture of play sand and EE P&S: That's good, how deep is it? Hermit crabs need at least 6" of substrate or three times the size of your largest crab, whichever is deeper. 2. Do you have gauges i...

Re: Crabitat Update!

I like it! What plants have you tired so far? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk I tried a Neoregilia bromeliad but the crabs destroyed it pretty fast, the mood moss is doing well so far. I might try putting in a spider plant since I have quite a few offshoots from my big plant. I've put them in ...

Crabitat Update!

I've done quite a few changes to the crabitat since my last update! New wood and I've been trying out some live plants! I've only had success with live moss so far. :D https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190222/c65f542f42454d54d5892f0c7667d81a.jpg Here's a picture of Dottie as an added bonus! https:/...

Re: New Ultratherm design?

This is what I got from reptile basics as well. It's odd, and I personally think it doesn't heat as well. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk I personally disagree. Mine was heating WAY too well until I put a thermostat on it. I have the 23" x 11" UTH from reptilebasics, which looks like t...

Re: Suggestions for moss

I've used both Hiawatha moss and Mosser Lee moss and I think I personally prefer Hiawatha.... specifically because it seemed to have less little twigs for me to pick out. :)

Re: Crab fights

To me it looks like the new crab might be interested in Crabina's shell. How many extra shells do you have? Might be a good time to get some more to hopefully curb the new crabs interest.

Re: My Substrate Seems Very Saturated

As someone who ended up dealing with a bacterial bloom last year - I second the statement that mixing your substrate with fresh or saltwater does not seem to have an effect. My main issue was my Ultratherm getting too warm and drying the air out, (which surprised me) I would mist to get it back up. ...

Old elm wood is a huge hit with my unwanted isopods. The trees that died decades ago during the dutch elm disease outbreak have aged enough to where the isopods can tunnel right through and eat every last bit. My millis love the stuff as well.
Huh... interesting! I'll keep that in mind.

Re: Some Isopod Pictures

Oooo thank you so much... I was trying to find bark on my own but just kept finding shredded bark meant for making soaps and such!
I'm starting to get into isopods as much as I am my crabs!
