Re: Supplies Wants/Needs

We found ours at Michael's and Hobby Lobby. They have all thicknesses of hemp and jute rope. I have 4 different sizes.

Re: 29 Gallon Crabby Nursery

We duct taped a Polypro insulation board on top of the UTH. You can't do that with all uths, but the ones we get from The Bean Farm and Flukers are safe. The insulation helps keep the heat in. We duct tape the UTH first, then tape the insulation on.

Re: Crab with molting crab?

If they are molting, let them be. It's best to not disturb them when they are molting.

Re: Crab tank heat

What kind of UTH are you using? Where is it located and how big is it? What kind of lid do you have?

Re: Soon to be new crab owner

I suggest getting an accurite digital hydrogenator. Carefully read the care guides and food guides on this site. Also, check out the adoptions link! Adopt, don't shop. I understand that's not always possible, but please try that first. Like I said, these are my suggestions. Be fully educated before ...

Re: Worm castings

Those suggestions are good. Are you monitoring the humidity as well? Do you use dechlorinated fresh water and dechlorinated salt water? I recommend Prime dechlorinator and instant ocean for the salt. Plus, check out all the care guides on this site. The more information you have, the better the crab...

Yes, I agree. Move the tank when all crabbies are up! Better safe than sorry!

Re: New to forums!!

Right, we all do something different. Nothing is 100% known. All we do is try our best to figure crabbies out! Everything is suggestions and our own experiences.

Re: New to forums!!

I would personally dip them all, therefore every one smells the same.

Re: New to forums!!

Have you dipped the new crabs in salt water before adding putting them all together? Our thoughts are if all crabs smell the same, maybe there won't be such aggression. We do a lot of adopting and rescuing of crabbies and we always dip them in salt water. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm just...

Re: Newbie Crabitat

Looks good. The crabbies need the waters to be deep enough to fully submerge. They have modified gills and need to be able to submerge. Do you use dechlorinated waters? We use Prime. The instant ocean is great for the salt water (also dechlorinated).
