I put a towel over just the top of the tank, not anywhere near the uth. I'm not playing any games with insulating near/around/on top of the zoomed uth.

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

Thanks so much for all of your responses. I have another uth on the way to try to make it a little warmer for them. My substrate is sand castle consistency. I've been trying to follow the food pyramid. I'm just going to keep making sure their home is as ideal as possible and hope for the best. I fee...

Hello everyone! I'm so excited to join this group. I'm getting all of my crabby supplies this weekend and will adopt some hermies after I set up my crabitat. This place has been such a great resource. I'm looking forward to jumping into the world of hermit crabs. I had several as a child that I real...
