Re: Elm wood?

Yes, it is! I've used branches for years now. They may mold as soon as they hit the humidity of the tank. I have always just used them straight from the yard due to the size. Thanks so much! I will use it then :cheer: and WILL snag more esp when they cut the Maple tree up too...lol! Couple of more ...

Re: Found hermit in hotel laundry r]oom

If your conditions aren't already up, you could put the iso inside your bigger tank if you have space. Saves on getting an extra everything in the meantime until sales are out!

I c...

Re: Found hermit in hotel laundry r]oom

I’d say if he does dig then wait, he’s the only crab in the 3 gallon so he should be fine. OK, success! Chunky's now in the lidded aquarium 3 gallon warm/humid iso tank. His mini hospital. I think he may of ate some boiled egg in shell or was sniffing it, and powdered cuttlebone I put in, and he du...

Re: Found hermit in hotel laundry r]oom

Wow! I can’t believe someone would just leave him like that. If I were in your situation I would isolate him until you can get the 29 gallon set up, keep on top of the healing foods and bring his temperature and humidity up to standard. Then when the 29 is setup you can put him in there, and add in...
