Re: Should I use a storage bin for a tank?

Even a 'shallow' end needs to be at least 6 inches deep. The problem with making a 'window' or front opening, would likely be keeping the humidity in. I used a 10 gallon for the first couple of years I had my crabs. Your current tank has room for more sub for sure, and you can cut the plants to be ...

Re: Should I use a storage bin for a tank?

Pretty much the same as JJ - Couldn't see them, too hard to get in and out, several have managed to escape and one died from it [emoji17], humidity was too high and too much moisture pooled at the very bottom, haven't been able to maintain temps. Thank you! I did think about making " windows" out o...

Re: Should I use a storage bin for a tank?

Coco - from looking at your tank, you need deeper substrate. My biggest down side would be not being able to see the crabs through the tote. Thank you and I know I need deeper substrate. I did add in some I don't remember when. I am not quite sure how much weight their shelf can hold and I thought ...

Re: Should I use a storage bin for a tank?

For me, it was the lid. I dont know why exactly, but the locking lid made it annoying to maintain and made it very much like a chore. Another reason is the clarity of glass is gone, its very hard to enjoy them and I felt like I was just tossing in food and water and calling it a day - minimal inter...

Re: Should I use a storage bin for a tank?

You can search craigslist and apps like LetGo and OfferUp for tank deals. I bought a 55 gallon with a wooden stand for $65 and then found another 55gallon with the thicker glass and a metal stand for $30. I think the totes are for temporary use, but I could be wrong. Thank you! I will check them ou...

Re: Tank flooding!

Please don't blame yourself! Things just happen! Even if we do everything right. I personally have never had this happen to me and I am not sure what to do. Definitely put you crabbies into an iso tank and I personally wouldn't keep th old substrate just in case. I hope everything goes well and your...

Thank you so much. I will be figuring everything out and making sure my other crabs are completely safe, because that is my number one priority. Thank you so so much again. :) Your so sweat! And you are welcome! I think that is a good plan to do the bottle method. I will be praying! Sent from my SM...
