CrabbyKateCrabShack on Etsy has nice shells, but her account is currently on vacation.

HappyCrabby on Etsy also has good shells.

Heat Pads and Suction Cups

I’m needing to put another heat pad on the side on my tank but I have a lot of suction cups on the side I’d like to put it. Is the heat from a heat pad going to mess with the suction cups from sticking to the side?

Re: Humidity Keeps Dropping

Yea, I had to also get a lighting strip for their day/night cycle when I made the change, but it’s for light only, no heat. I too had a heating pad on the back when I was using lamp, but it wasn’t a good one and was too small to generate enough heat. They say to get one as big as the back of the ta...

Re: Humidity Keeps Dropping

i ordered custom cut plexiglass from my local glass cutter
i got four pieces (bc my tank has a cent brace) and taped two sets of two pieces together to make two pieces and then you can just lay them on top and flip them open[/quote]

I’ll look into converting my screen into glass, thanks!

Re: Humidity Keeps Dropping

Moss pit could def help, but I also noticed you said you have 3/4 of top covered with plastic wrap and have a heat lamp...I’m assuming that’s why you have 1/4 left open. Having that open part and a heat lamp could easily be the reason you’re losing humidity. Maybe consider fully wrapping it in plas...

How did you make one? Custom glass exo terra lids are very expensive to buy and I don’t have that much money to spend on a lid.

is your sub wet enough?
Did you buy a glass lid or did you make one? I have an exo terra tank so normal lids wouldn’t work.

Humidity Keeps Dropping

The humidity in my hermit crabs enclosure keeps dropping. I have a 38x18x18 tank. There is plastic wrap on 3/4 of the wire top. Both fresh and salt water pools have a bubbler. I have a humidifier that runs for 30 mins every 1 hour and 30 mins. I also have day and night heat bulbs. I don’t know how t...
