Re: Lighting question

Honestly it's a tough call. As long as there's some day/night cycle where the tank is situated, I wouldnt worry too much. Maybe a good rule of thumb, bright enough that you notice light, but not bright enough where strong light from a window will cast hard shadows? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapat...

I also wouldnt worry about mixing it in, the crabs will do that themselves.

Re: Sand

All of the substrate needs to be sand castle consistency. If your sand is dry now, you need to add water to it as well. You can mix the sand and EE together and then add dechlorinated water and mix it up until it's all the right consistency. Thanks ! I know that, but thank you.... I'm talking about...
