Re: Leaf litter

Thanks all! I actually found a great app that lets me take a pic and identifies the plant! It’s called PlantSnap if anyone else wants to try! It’s free

Leaf litter

Hey all! Just wondering if there is a leaf identifier or something that tells you what’s ok and what’s not and more importantly what it looks like? Maybe I missed it? I don’t have any trees in my yard but I’d like to add some to my tat and really don’t know what I’m looking for.

Is there a list of leaves that are ok and how to tell what each one is?

Re: New crab mom!

I love all this info! I added a plastic platform to my tank and I’m wondering if this needs the same level of substrate or will the “first floor” suffice? As of now I just put a little on the platform so they wouldn’t be walking on plastic. Also my crannies have been hanging in the same spot for a w...

Re: New crab mom!

I could be completely wrong (obviously I am brand new to this) but as I read it when you first moistened the substrate you use the salt water, then the fresh water to mist and keep humidity up thereafter so the salt doesn’t build up. At least that’s how I read it. Please let me know if I’m wrong.

Re: New crab mom!

Thanks curlysister! I have been very worried about many things because I came in so inexperienced! I am happy to give them a good home and will try to post pics of my new tank and new buddies soon!

Re: New crab mom!

Thank you all so much for all the great advice. I have just upgraded to a 29 gallon tank with a stand. I moisten the substrate with freshwater dechlorinated. I’ve got the humidity and temperature in the right ranges and I think my crabs are happy. I have shells on the way from Richards. And while my...
