Re: Need help figuring out how to warm tank up

There are Ultra Therm Heaters on reptilebasics.com that are under $30 and work very well, but for insulation, you can try draping their tank with blankets for the winter. For humidity, you can get some moss cheap at the store and spray it with warm water, and try to seal off your tank as much as pos...

Re: calcium supplement meant for humans?

I don't think it was the wrong one so much as not the one her doctor recommended. My dad agrees with you, though, thinks that the doctor is just being finnicky. I'm sure someone will take it haha

Re: calcium supplement meant for humans?

got butterflies, joe hermits, xenocrab, thanks! however, it did get me thinking about calcium supplements in general as my crabs could probably use some more supplements (i have a hard time getting a hold of calcium-rich foods). i've heard of adding calcium powder to dried foods, one that's crab-saf...

Re: Keeping heat during winter?

I would suggest getting a UTH heater, but those are on the pricey side. What kind of heat mat do you have? if it is UTH, you can insulate it with these steps: get a piece of cardboard as big as the heat mat, and tape aluminum foil to one side of it. then tape that piece of cardboard against the heat...

Re: How to boil moldy wood...

Get grandma's stock pot. Say a little prayer of appology to her, and then swear your husband to secrecy to never ever tell your mother what you're doing with the inhereted cookware. Add 2 gallons of water Add 2 pounds of kosher salt Boil for 15 minutes And then boil for 15 minutes And then boil for...

Re: aggressive crab at food bowls

We have crabs that do the same thing. I just think when they see a crab munching in one food dish, they think it's better better than the other food fish. I wouldn't worry about a little pushing. If you see aggressive attacks I'd be more concerned. okay, thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

aggressive crab at food bowls

I usually put out two bowls of food, but if she wants she could easily sit on top of it and take up the whole thing. (the two smaller guys are about the size of ping pong balls, she is about ...

bored crab staring into space :(

I have four crabs (one medium, two large, one extra large) in a fifty gal. my extra large, sandy, used to be an avid climber, but now she spends most of her time on the upper level just staring outside the tank at the rest of my room, antenna waving. I think she's just really bored of everything, an...

Re: I think my crabs ate a blue spotted salamander!?

Oh gosh.... that seems crazy. I guess there’s nothing you can do about it now except watch your crabs for strange behaviors. If it’s true, then r.i.p little salamander :(
