I got my plexiglass at Hobby Lobby. About $6 for a sheet. By cutting it down I was able to cover my 75 gal lid.
Ooo that's a good price. I have a hobby lobby trip planned this weekend. I found it online at Lowes as well and I can get away with 2 sheets that I wouldn't have to cut.

Re: Need Plexiglass

Hmmm good points as always. I was thinking about maybe trying to hinge on the 75. Currently I have 4 pieces cut from what I had available from a stained glass collection covering the 40. I need something to cover the 75 while the 3 down in the 40 finish up molting, I can take the glass off the 40 fo...

Need Plexiglass

So tonight I was feeding crabs and I went to re- cover the tank with a glass lid that I have cut and grinded and I was holding it one handed by a corner and it broke, hit the tank and shattered into a bazillion pieces! Thankfully crabs were all still sleeping , most of the pieces fell on the floor. ...

Re: Hi! New here!

Welcome to the HCA! They are a bit of a challenge to get set up, once you have humidity and temperature stable it gets easier. You are right, they are not cheap, even if you are trying to be cost efficient. Pet sand isn't a lot of fun either. But they are amazing and fascinating creatures. http://he...

Re: Crabtopia build journal

It's getting really close now. As this project has evolved I have been able to somehow temper my impatience with the knowledge that I want it done right the best way possible. That and after just so long I get tired and decide to come back another day. I wanted the outer covering boards to look real...

Re: Video cameras?

Click on your camera window , in the upper right hand side there is a gear. Click motion capture and then it will catch motion in the tank (sometimes). Theres another section (I forget where) that you can adjust the sensitivity of when it will detect. I turned it all the way up. When it detects moti...

Re: Video cameras?

I agree. I just bought the basic $20 wyze and an sd card for it. It attaches to the wall easy and is fairly straight forward and easy to use. You register it and control it with an app on your phone. You can set it to motion capture which works decently enough to help you know when they hiding or st...

Re: Websites that humanely ship hermit crabs?

Y’all ordered strawberries that came through the mail. They didn’t bring those over humanely. There is no ethical consumption under capitalism, period. Nothing is cruelty free. From the migrant laborers farming in extreme conditions for pennies on the dollar to pet stores to the clothes you purchas...

Re: 40gal breeder crabitat

That is really amazing and I agree about the space. I love the skewer ladder idea... it looks so cool and takes up so much less space than pvc pipe with egg crate.

Re: The Three Musketeers Are Here!

That crab in the corner looks like it's just destressing. Some crabs are more active than others. I have this one who seems to hardly ever do anything. He just likes to stay burrowed up near the top.
