Welcome the new Crew!!

Thank you! I was pleasantly surprised at how brilliant they all seemed to be already, which also encourages me a bit that they are in better shape than they could’ve been, despite the cramped shells! I’m tempted to take their old shells and donate them back to the crabitat (at Petsmart) for others t...

Re: Am I crazy?

Oh wow! That is a lot of space to roam and play- I’ll definitely need to keep that in mind. They seem like so much fun- not that the PPs aren’t, too! (they totally are or I wouldn’t have gotten even more of course!) Simply that the Es are so energetic in everything they do- they’re almost like... ov...

Re: Am I crazy?

With Es, please keep in mind a few things - IMO..they do not handle overcrowding well. For Es - I recommend the following: at least 10 gallons PER E At least 10" - 12" of substrate At least 2 proteins daily, and lots of calcium choices. By following these protocols, I have kept Es without issues. T...

Up! It would accommodate up to 11” of substrate depth- which is awesome, bc we are also interested in adding a couple of Es; dependent on final clan size! If they all stay homed here I wouldn’t want to add any more. (And that’s totally ok with me of course!) I’m only trying to be ready in case any o...

Re: Am I crazy?

We have 6 now. 2 are teeny/small, 1 small, 2 smallish medium crabs and one larger medium. However, the last 4 listed are new, and there is a possibility of adopting the largest to another home with a similar sized crab. It’s kind of dependent on who pulls through!

Am I crazy?

Not necc hard to come by, but everyone seems to want a fortune for anything larger than a 10. I live in the country and a ton of people do raise a ton of various critters! It would most def be a labor of love. But I wouldn’t neeeed to upgrade again. Maybe get a second but never ‘not use’ this one ei...

Am I crazy?

My husband is going to frame it in, and additionally it is the older style of aquarium with extra thick glass- or I wouldn’t consider it! Actually, I don’t think I could mod it that heavily without his help, because he’s the blacksmith- not I! Ha So, either way is feasible, and while modding the gla...

Re: Am I crazy?

Thank you- I just saw *POTENTIAL* when I ran across it, and there was no WAY I could pass that up lol. I’ll be honest, I only gave $35 for it! So I don’t mind investing more in it for sure. I also was thinking of the “eggcrate solution” for additional ledges and climbs, etc. my only concern is havin...

Re: Am I crazy?

Thank you- I really thought so too. It needs some cleaning up and some modding- no matter how I slice it there- but I expected and even welcome that! Yes!!! I had a similar idea with the shelves. I just need a plan for when I need to reach allll the way down, and that sorta concerns me- I would have...

Am I crazy?

Just glass is 28” tall, back sides are 19”, and the 2 smaller front pieces are 11”, and the possible door piece is 14”- leaving plenty of substrate depth room if I lay it down. So if I measured from back corner side and worked clockwise it goes 19-11-14-11-19. Thanks- I appreciate it!! Oh- and I had...

Am I crazy?

So. I got this really large tank on LetGo for cheap. Very cheap. It is rated as an aquarium, so I know it’s tough enough to hold what I need. I have a million ideas right now, and I want opinions!!! I cannot decide if I want to leave it as a tall, or if we should customize it, lay it on its side, an...
