Re: Mushrooms in the tank??

I'm sorry, I'm a little late to the party! Yeah, this is what mushrooms do. It'll be mushpocalypse for a few weeks and you'll think your tank is under attack. I promise, it will eventually just disappear! Let that area dry a little bit, and keep pulling the fruiting bodies as they pop up. It wants ...

Re: Mushrooms in the tank??

Hi Wode, thanks for the reply! Sooo, now things have appeared to have gotten worse...it looks like they are springing up everywhere in the tank now!! I can see a few through the glass, and they're growing relatively deep in the sub. There's at least 9 growing near the glass all throughout the tank. ...

Mushrooms in the tank??

This is the second time I've come across something like this in the tat. At first I didn't worry too much about it because I assumed a crab buried food, so it was mold growth due to the humidity. Now coming across this for a second time, I'm getting a better look at what's growing underneath my wate...

Re: Moldy Hammock

I hate to beat a dead horse about the mold... but I have more questions. The moldy hammock got moldier- until today I noticed that there is barely any mold left on it at all. I’ve also noticed my crabs are seemingly not eating anything that I try to feed them (fresh and organic fruits, veggies, gra...

Re: Grapewood and bugs

Interesting! Next time I see them, I'll see if they're mites or springtails.

Re: Grapewood and bugs

I forget what shape they were..I don't think they were shiny though. Can they just come out of nowhere?

Grapewood and bugs

I've had my grapewood vine in my tank for sometime now, and it's been doing fairly well in terms of how much mold grows on it- it comes, dies off- comes again, etc. but the growth really never gets out of control. While doing tank maintenance today I noticed these little tiny bugs crawling around on...

Re: Moldy Hammock

Well, I tried boiling it in saltwater and completely drying it out before putting it back in but the mold is back so I’m surrendering to it- if I don’t replace it right away it’s okay for them? I know I’ve read that it isn’t harmful to crabs but it still freaks me out [emoji58] if they are crawling...

Re: Moldy Hammock

I've never had luck with hammocks like that either. Since my tank usually is over 90% humidity, I always had mold growth and could never get rid of it- no matter what I tried. I ended up resorting to trying out another climbing structure-a grapewood vine. I've had more luck with it in terms of how m...

Re: Beach items to feed?

My concern would be that you "don't think" that fertilizers and pesticides are used in the area. You need to know for sure. If you find out that they are not, the sea grape leaves would be great. My crabs love them! Mine love both fresh and dried. Please know that if you are using a public area, I ...

Beach items to feed?

Hello everyone! So I go to school that's located right off a bay, so I visit a small beach that leads directly to the bay in my spare time. Given that I live in Florida there are plenty of mangroves, sea grape trees, tiny shells and bivalve shells. The area is well visited by marine life, and I don'...

Thank you! I have a 29G tank, and got the shells from Naples Sea Shell Company, I believe! [emoji3]

Re: Instant Ocean not dissolving

Oh wow, interesting. I don't allow the undissolved salt into their pools either, just the water. The crabs seem completely fine, so I guess I shouldn't worry so much. I'll switch to storing my salt in an airtight container too.
