Re: My new pets! (Goldfish!)

If you want to cycle faster ask around your local aquarium club, someone will have extra media for super cheap pre seeded. Once I learned that, I always start a new tank with mulm or media from an established tank. Cuts cycling time in half for me, ymmv of course. We have great water for most freshw...

Re: Can't find hermit crab poop

I've had my crabs for almost a year and just started finding poohs. I don't know if it's because they're bigger now and so is their poops. I haven't had any issues like odors, bacterial blooms, mold, etc. Now when I find it I put it in the pools to help with the nitrate cycle. Sent from my LM-K920 u...

Re: Moved - 125g tank with new filtered pools!

Ok, thanks. I didn't realize you could get the uth so large.

I've got my current uth set up on a controller as well. It's great at stabilizing temps.

Re: Moved - 125g tank with new filtered pools!

It looks amazing! What are you using to heat that? I'm thinking about upgrading to that size but worry about being able to heat it properly.

Re: Good idea/bad idea?

These are inspiring. I don't know if the breeder tank has room for a 5g inside it, but next to it..... I'm plotting ideas. Given how I've started acquiring fish/tanks people don't want to take care of any more, what's one more to clean at this point. One piece of advice; never agree to "pet sit" any...

Sea Monkeys? Lol. Just kidding. Snails sound interesting. Land or aquatic?

Re: DIY/Cheap alternatives

It looks great. The only suggestion I would make is to put some shells or other flat item under the legs of the white rack. Once you add the substrate, the legs will start to sink otherwise.

Re: Getting settled?

They also dig to destress, and it sounds like they came from a pretty stressful environment. I'm willing to bet they're coming out, just really late or when nobody is around

Re: New tank set-up! How's it look?

Nice! Kinda jealous of those pools. Do the crabs fully submerge or just toe dip?

Re: Trying on Shells

I have one crab that tries on every shell it can stuff itself into before settling on one. Doesn't matter if they're to small or way to big. He's like a Pokemon trainer, gotta catch 'em all.
