Re: Here we go...

Soooo- it was definitely safety glass! Yeah... the instant it made it to the other side of the glass and punched out that piece the glass broke. Regrouping and pouring in a floor. More info to come.

Re: How long do you keep your heater on?

Yep- all the time basically. Adding a thermostat ASAP too- it’s just simpler than the constant monitoring that requires. Our power went out the other day and I covered all my tanks immediately (one is a tote for the moment) but they all still dropped to 73/75 over the next hour or so. [emoji15] I wa...

Here we go...

So as some of you may remember I found a wonderful 72 gallon bowfront, with a stand, for a good price a while back. The stand was practically falling apart, just staples and a few nails and not sturdy... so we fixed it! We reinforced it with 2x4 lumber, painted it, added door pulls (sea glass) and l...

Re: Mixing crabs???

But if you would like to get one, anything can serve as a temporary iso, really. Rubbermaid totes or boxes; as long as you get in them once a day they should be fine, or otherwise make holes. Boycotting the industry would be great, but it’s impossible to do completely and still keep crabs. Don’t let...

Re: Adopted 2 Crabbies that weren't in best condition; not moving or eating much!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to update on my two crabbies. So it's been three months and Stardust is thriving. She survived her first molt and even changed into a bigger shell. I'm so proud of her! As far as Lyra goes, she has been MIA since the end of March. I saw her for awhile hiding out at the b...

Re: Butterfly hatched!

Agreed- thank you! We will be on the lookout in our field and in the apple orchard too, after I make a few adjustments here. [emoji16][emoji1303]

Butterfly hatched!

Thanks! I’ve bought more perennials this year that will hopefully help with this too! I will have more flowering trees in a few years too. It’s a process but I have goals- a full English garden complete with greenhouse one day. It’s good to dream! [emoji6] Thank you so much for sharing! [emoji3590]D...

Re: Butterfly hatched!

That’s so amazing! I would love to do something like that, but I just don’t find many caterpillars around our area. (Except pests) If we find a good one this year as we have in the past I may be in touch! [emoji6] He is gorgeous- congrats! [emoji3590]Dave the Wondercrab~Pat~MaggieMoo~Billy~ Pop~Corn...

Re: Hamster wheel, yes or no?

Yep! Here’s a close up: we drilled small pairs of holes, attached the inner that way, and then used the zip tie itself to attach the outer. Mine got a touch out of alignment so ignore that part, but here are a cpl pics. And yes to a wheel! Mine love theirs- Billy sleeps in it most days and they use ...
