Gnats

Gnat infestation in cage, I’m kinda worried, will they hurt the crabs? How do I get rid of them, I already tried deep cleaning the cage, but they came back.

Re: Flies in tank

I don’t think they are fungus gnats, they have a bulbous body, it doesn’t look like any pics I’ve seen, but they’re too small to be an average house fly

Misting

Is it necessary to dechlorinate water for misting the tank? I believe I know the answer I just wanted to make sure :)

They actually prefer sometimes food a few days old, than fresh. In the wild they are scavengers.
That makes sense actually!! It’s just frustrating because she won’t let me take it lol, because I’m trying to keep the crabitat clean

Re: Need help with ‘furnishing’ crabitat

If you look in the photos, or use the 'search' function, you can see a bunch of ideas for a second level. I haven't added one, but some people have done some amazing things!

You want the biggest UTH that will fit on the back of your tank from the top of the sub to the top of the tank - go by size (inches) not by how many gallons it says it will heat. Ultratherm and Flukers are excellent UTH's - they are attache...

Re: Need help with ‘furnishing’ crabitat

Remember, you don'w want to overcrowd you tank. I recommend the ThermoPro band for the temperature and humidity tracker ($9/$10). I also have recently bought Fluker's new zealand shpagnum moss. I suggest getting some shells and toys(A hide house if you haven't already) if you don't have them, and m...

Possible mite?

Hi, I observed what I believe might be a might on one of my crabs, Josephina, it looked like a tiny grain of sand and moved really fast, what could it be? I’m fairly new and just worried about her :)

Just wanted to share an adorable moment

One of my crabs Josephina was sitting on my bed with me (I put her down for a moment to change the food in the cage, as she was hanging out in/guarding the bowl and then she wouldn’t let go of the sheets and I didn’t want to hurt her, so I sat with her and was waiting until she was ready to go back ...

Re: New hermit owner, need help with habitat.
