Re: New to this

Hi FLOCs! Welcome to the hobby. When I first got my crabs I used to worry about them all the time, but what I have learned after a few years of crab ownership is that the crabs are very good at taking care if themselves, once your conditions are right. It is not uncommon for people to barely see the...

Re: Second floor?

What a great idea! I'd love to see how that turned out! I actually have a little wooden golf tee poked through the burlap mesh and into the moss on the side of the tank. It's really secure already that way, but I also have the dish sitting on top of the mesh for extra support. The bottom is also "t...

Re: Second floor?

Yep, burlap from a craft store. :D Thank you! I actually worked really hard on it, and Maui seems to enjoy it! Did u zip tie the burlap over craft mesh? That's always been my go-to technique. I actually just constructed a new tat by ziptyung burlap over egg crate panels. Sent from my SM-G950U using...

Re: Lighting timers

How about a smart plug? I use these.... each has ability to set a schedule PER SOCKET plug - that’s 4 different light schedules.

Re: Second floor?

Love it! Im so inspired! I cant figure out what the mesh is ... burlap? Looks like burlap to me. I use burlap constantly in my tank. Really cute 2nd level btw! I always reccomend putting in an upstairs, gives ur crabs more usable room to explore/travel/hide. My crabs are always hanging out on the 2...

Re: 90 gal basic setup

Lighting timers

Hi all! I want to have 1, possibly 2 lamps that turn on during the day and 1 lamp that turns on at night on my tat. I bought a light timer with multiple plugs thinking that each plug could be programmed individually but now I'm thinking that's not how it works! Do you guys know of any timers that ca...

Re: Tank Build Diary

I looked on line at Home Depot for gutter mesh and what they have doesn't look flexible. Its probably something ud want to check out in person. I dont know if I would have guessed this stuff would be flexible by looking at it. The really nice thing about this mesh is that it's flexible but still ve...

Re: Tank Build Diary

That looks amazing. I love that 'lap level' you have going around the tank. Always wanted to do one, but never actually got around to it. Looks amazing in your setup!
