Re: Dog bowl as water dish?

Thanks!I’lol probably just find some plastic tupperware container to use,I’m currently using circular Tupperware containers but I don’t like the way they fit.I want something that fits together and doesn’t have gaps in between.

Dog bowl as water dish?

I was at Dollar Tree and looked in the pet section and saw this double plastic dog bowl.It had two sides and was slightly elevated.Do you think this would work as water dishes?I have a 20 high.Would I need to bury it or just make ramps for it?Any other suggestions are appreciated too!

Re: DIY Decor on a budget?

I want to do a second level if I can,I might have an end with more substrate and an end with a little less and do the second level on the lower end if I can.I also don’t need as much substrate because my crab and the ones I’m getting are all small

UTH Sizing?

I’m buying a zoo med heater for my 10 gallon tank and was wondering which one to get?Would the one made for 30-40 gallons make my tank too hot?

Can you over de-chlorinate water?

I bought an API water conditioner and it says 1 ml per 15 gallons so I’m not sure how much to put in one gallon(I use gallon jugs to store my water) so I was wondering if it’s possible to over de chlorinate it jut in case I put to much.
