Re: 3 crabs need a good home

Thinking about it a bit more....The way I have it set up, any leak should go into the area you see with the seashells, which is separated from the habitat, rather than into the tank. It wasn't the reason I made it that way, but thank goodness for happy accidents! It will allow me to watch for any wa...

Re: 3 crabs need a good home

I'm in Harrisburg PA if you still prefer to rehome. I can't drive too far, but we can probably figure something out.

Re: 3 crabs need a good home

Also, if you want to correct the humidity/temp issue in order to keep them, I've recently had unexpected success with the water feature in my tank setup in that area. I used plexiglass and silicone glue to block off a few inches of the tank to allow for a fresh water pond. I keep plants and snails a...

Re: My crab is pooping in his water dish!

Yes, they don't care where it goes. Just like birds, they go when & where they go, so if it happens to be while they check out the fresh carrots...eh, so be it. I don't know if they ever eat their own waste, but they will snack on the waste of other animals. Such is the life of a scavenger. So, whil...

Re: Can I use saltwater from the ocean at the beach?

I never thought about it being polluted. We always see schools of fish and dolphins in the area we swim and lots of people fish from the beach. I usually bring back a 20 oz water bottle of ocean water once a year when we go. My reasoning was that there would be nutrients or trace elements in the oce...

Re: Weight of sand

If you're concerned and want to lighten the load, replace a bag or two of sand with the EE. I used sand exclusively for years until a few weeks ago when I ordered a brick of EE from Amazon for $5 to raise the volume of sand in my new 75 gal tank. The weight issue for me is more about having to move ...

Re: Hermit crab aggression?

Yeah, I had to rinse mine twice...a salt water rinse after the fresh water rinse... to stop Harriet from freaking out! I guess their reactions and territorial displays are as varied as the shells they wear..

Re: Hermit crab aggression?

I would have thought it was flat out aggression if I hadn't just seen the threads on hermit crabs breeding. Is it possible you have a big male and the smaller one is female?? And then the other questions, size of habitat, substrate depth, etc.... Mine are also in a new tank and there have been a few...

Re: Do hamster wheels have to be plastic?

All that and they haven't touched it! Not that I'm surprised, exactly. They haven't gone near most of the stuff I put in the tank. Maybe it'll take a few weeks before they're comfortable enough to explore?

Re: Tank cleaning Tip

If the minerals have been there long enough, the glass may actually be etched, in which case, it's permanent, which is probably the case if it's still not budging. No amount of elbow grease will make a difference. Lots of things can etch glass over time, including the minerals in water and even laun...
