Re: Substrate/your opinion

So long as your crabs are growing, active, healthy and such. It's the right way. I'm a firm believer in, if it's not broke, don't fix it.

Re: Tank topper questions!

Re: Tank topper questions!

I have been considering something similar, been toying with the idea of glass, with a knob glued on each end and trimmed in either plastic or rubber.

Re: Don’t know what to do with heat mats?

Hopefully someone recalls the name of the place, Bean something. They have a heat tape? Something like that, it's customizable. That would be your best bet.

Re: How long?

I've had them down for almost 4 months, talk about nerve wracking. I've got one down now that I'm pretty sure is gone, but there is no smell, so am waiting. It's been 5 months or so.

Re: Crab hanging upside down from lid?

Re: 35 gallon tank

I had glass cut to fit the mesh part of the lid and duct taped it on. I started with plexiglass, but over time it warped.
