Pet compost

I'm always putting dried leaves and sticks and crushed eggshells and vegetable ends in my crabitat. Does anyone else ever feel like they have a pet compost pile?

Re: Adopted some salt marsh crabs that will not live much longer

I'm guessing you probably already know this but just in case, it should be dechlorinated marine salt water. GL!

Lethargic Crab

This isn't so much of an emergency as it is for reassurance. I'm worried about one of my crabs. He spent all day on his back in one spot, which is extremely unusual for any of my crabs. I picked him up and looked him over and didnt see any obvious problems, but he hasn't moved from the spot where I ...

Re: How do I know if my crabs are defecating?

There's really no reason to he worried, it's very easy to miss. Not oy are their poops small but they eat ALOT of sub so it will likely blend right in. You'll see some eventually ;)

It makes it hard to play favorites because my favorite Crab is Crab, and they are all Crab.

Re: Where to get hermit crabs?

I got three of my crabs on here and 2 on craigslist. It was hard waiting to find them but I'm glad I did. Dont want to support the hermit crab industrial complex. So worth the wait.

Re: Redecorating new tank: enrichment ideas

Plastic plants are fine for the most part, as long as they dont have like sparkles or any stuff that might come off. Most of us use plastic plants in our tats.

Re: 80 gallon bow front upgrade!!!

I found this video, only watched it a little bit so I'm not sure what kind of tools are really needed but this could work. https://youtu.be/l87Smn6CRI8 Also you could make a wooden frame for the back and sides and then use some sort of rubber flap around the front.

Re: 80 gallon bow front upgrade!!!

Nice. I want to upgrade (I only bought this tank less than 2 years ago and I already want a bigger one lol) and I think bowfronts look the nicest but there is the question about what to do for the lid. I made the lid on my current tat myself out of wood but my carpentry skills are limited to shapes ...
