Re: Ethically Sourced Shells?

I know that popular shell websites here are Naples Seashells, and Richard’s Seashells. They can both be found online, but Richard’s also has an etsy shop.

Well, I have a 10 year old son and a 2 year old (not so tiny) pup... I think duct tape would be the way to go for me. Just to be on the safe side lol.
Understandable! :)

Re: Tips for a topper?

Thanks a bunch!! Maybe I will try again one day... One more question, do you secure your topper to your main tank or just sit it up there? It's pretty heavy to begin with, so it may be fine if you know you or anything else won't bump it, but I recommend using plain duct tape to tape it on if you wo...

Re: Tips for a topper?

Would you mind sharing how you did it? I've looked up many ways but it didn't work out very well for me. Lol Well, it’s very surprising but I used a simple X-Acto knife underneath the bottom rim to loosen the silicone, and then I cut through around the bottom edges where the large amounts of it are...

I've never done a topper but I'm curious. How would they access it if the bottom is still intact?
I had it flipped over so the open top was facing down, but now I want to break the bottom so both ends are accessible by me and the crabs.

Tips for a topper?

I have a topper, but now I feel like I need to remove the bottom glass so I can reach in through the top, but I am a bit scared when it comes to removing it. What would be the best way to take it out? Should I cover it with a towel and smash it out carefully, or should I cut the silicone from under ...

I give my crabs rose of sharon, they like a wide variety of the flowers from the safe food list.

Re: I revamped the 50 gallon!

Looks great! I love the topper, I really need to do more research on the different sizes that fit. Your tank turned out awesome! [emoji3059] Thanks! I did add quite a bit of new wood, cork, and extra plants yesterday, here's what it looks like. https://i.imgur.com/reWaKZO.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FA...

My house gets into the eighties and nineties in the summer, so I have a thermostat so I don’t accidentally cook my crabs.

My heaters remain unplugged for the entire summer, and I watch the weather forecast for the night in case it gets chilly unexpectedly.

Re: Heating pad or heat lamp?

I just dislike heating lamps due to the fact that you can't set them down on glass lids or they will crack, and they have a higher chance of drying out the substrate and zapping humidity. It's much easier if you install a heating pad like an ultratherm with insulation if needed. You can buy thermost...

Re: I revamped the 50 gallon!

Your guys will love the deeper substrate! When you need to change the food and water do you just pull the top tank off? We have talked about making a topper for a while now but never got any further than talk. I'm sure the extra room helps spread things out and frees up substrate real estate. I alw...

I revamped the 50 gallon!

I decided to redo the entire tank yesterday afternoon because of how nasty it was getting, and the substrate was a bit dried out so I added brand new and moistened it again. Now we have about fifteen or so inches of playsand and ecoearth in a 29 gallon tank with a 20 long on top of it, and I just ca...
