Re: possible bacterial bloom

Oh no. :( Are you sure the crab died? Did it smell like dead fish? You could feed it to the other crabs if that isn't too painful for you to do. Usually people who churn the substrate wait until all the crabs are up by chance. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk yes i'm sure she was dead, she fell...

Re: possible bacterial bloom

Re: 20 gallon long pics please?

i dont have a 20 L but i know what they look like.
a simple solution for now would be to use your 10 gallon as a topper once you get it cleaned out. you can search the forum for topper posts but you basically turn your tank upside down on another one and use it for vines and climbing space. good luck!

Re: Do anyone else's crabs love burying under water dishes

Do anyone else's crabs love burying under water dishes

I have glass water dishes for my crabs so maybe I notice it because I hear the scraping more than others but my crabs are obsessed with tunneling under their water dishes. I can usually see it on the side of the tank and I get worried because they make huge tunnels and I don't think the crabs can su...
