Re: Pantry? Moths

Pantry Moths suck, I currently have a infestation of them in my house (have no idea where their coming from, they seem to pop out of no where). They might be attracted to the lights in your tank (or the heat, I'm not a entomologist so I'm just guessing). You crabs will eat them if they get the chan...

Re: Fungus Gnat Infestation

Yeah we have plants everywhere in that apartment. I'm as certain as I can be that they're fungus gnats. I found a scholarly article that looked at the use of the bacteria for controlling a pest insect in land crab burrows that found no effect on the crabs so I think ik gonna go for it. Sent from my ...

Re: Fungus Gnat Infestation

I found some online resources claiming that this bacteria called Bacillus thuringiensis var. Israelensis (BTI) kills fungus gnats. Does anyone have any idea if this might be safe for crabs? If it's a bacteria my guess is that the crabs would probably be fine but this is just a guess. Sent from my SM...

Fungus Gnat Infestation

Hi all, I moved my crabitat when I went to grad school, but we ended up being 100% online this semester so I have been living back at my house almost 5 hours away. My roommate has been taking care of my crabs for me and just told me that the crabitat is infested with fungus gnats. We had a persisten...

Re: Review My Crabitat (Updated)

I'm not 100 percent sure about netting since I've never used it. Tons of people on here have though. One thing I would try to do is try to get 100% natural netting, like all cotton or something so that they dont end up eating anything they shouldn't cause they WILL eat it I just googled it a bit and...

Re: Review My Crabitat (Updated)

This tat is so cute! The only thing I would suggest is, on the right hand side where the cholla wood is you have a big section of empty glass. If you hung some netting from suction cups there, it would look cute and more importantly give your crabs even more space that they can climb on/use. Plus as...

Re: I got started on my HC tattoo

This is is on the back of my right calf. The same artist did my left calf five years ago. Artist: Greg Dorman Shop: ...

Re: Moving

Love it! I love that big wood piece, is that the piece you were looking for that kind of looks like a stump? Or am I thinking of something else? Add a few small climby plants to the front for a little more greenery, or a few things up front. I actually just added some more fake plants to my tank an...

Re: New crabs

Was he willing to give you the crabs? He was willing to *sell* me the crabs after he realized I was right and that no one else would want them. It was so crazy when he gave them to me he was practically tearing up about it and how sad he was that he had to rehome them which, on the one hand it was ...

Re: Moving

Thanks for all the well wishes guys! It is a ton of work, but this move has given me an opportunity to correct some mistakes I made the first time around so I think the re-build will be even better than the first. I'll post pics when its finished!

Re: New crabs

So exciting! When I was filling up my colony I adopted 2 crabs off of craigslist. The experience made me really angry because the guy didnt want to sell me the crabs if I wasn't going to buy his aquarium/crummy set up, which sounds like the lady who sold u 2 crabs. I told him he was lucky I was offe...
