New Owner - Started completely wrong!

We all started out that way and made improvements as we can. The best thing is that you are trying to do the right thing and that is all that matters. I have a few recommendations for food. My favorite places are all on Etsy. This one is a friend of mine, her shop is called 2OldCrabs. Here is a link...

Re: New 40 gallon breeder - questions

That’s what I have on mine. The top of the tank frame on mine is very wide, so I slid it up under the rim and it helped raise it a little bit. If you don’t know what I mean, I can take a picture of it to show you.

Re: Holy Crab Mesh!

I’ll try to check my local craft shop and if I can find some yellow I’ll bring it with me and give it to u at CrabCon. When I was looking for it they had rainbow of colors. How many sheets do you want? I can’t remember how much it was but it wasn’t expensive.

Newbie-ish. [emoji23]

They are so cute, they are purple pinchers. The recommendation is to have 5 parts playsand to 1 part eco earth but it really is up to your preference. It can be hard to maintain humidity with just eco earth and I’ve noticed when I keep a bucket of it (extra left over) the top layer dries out and the...

You should have a mix of play sand and eco earth(coco fiber), ratio of 5:1, 5 parts play sand to 1 part cocofiber. I’ll link you to the substrate care guides and you should be able to find the other care guides pretty easily from there. If you need a link to anything else just ask. [emoji4] https://...

Re: Ants!

Use vinegar to wipe around their tank, ants hate vinegar and it removes their scent trail they leave behind. I had an ant problem a few years ago, I wiped my floors with vinegar/water and then I soaked paper towels in vinegar, rolled them up, and put them all along the base trim in our kitchen where...
