Re: Tank Size And Heating

I just wanted to state that you cannot use heat lamps with glass tops. They will crack the glass. This is absolutely a very real risk if the wattage is too high or is placed too close to the glass. You cannot use the dome fixtures or anything else that sits on the glass directly. It's also an issue...

Re: Med-large PP needing home fast in Missouri

I don't know what you consider a reasonable distance to drive. I'm 5.5 hours away but could be willing to meet you halfway if you can't find someone closer to take them. I've got room for both as we're setting up my 55 gallon this week. Feel free to PM me if you're interested and we can swap phone n...

The glass top can have a sort of 'oven' effect making the heat from the bulbs much stronger. I use a UVB light in a low profile fixture set right on top o...

Not really new but reintroduction...

Hey everyone! I was on LHC many many moons ago. Unfortunately, I have no memory of my username or access to the original email, so for all intents and purposes, I'm new here! I have been keeping crabs for about 8 years now. I currently only have one, a PP named Hagrid. We just celebrated his 7th ann...
