Re: Humidity too high?

Am i reading this right? Forgive me if I misunderstood...humidity can indeed be too high..too high and the crabs are "drowning" too low and its like an asthma attack....with the exception of Straws it should be 75ish range.
Mold in a tank is not good....algae is ok

I dont have time to see what is out there but a quick search they all seem to be like what you had pictured- wonder why?? That is a good option cause you can have both bulbs I just dont know why they would stop the even disbursement of the other.
I will have to look more later

how moist is your sand/substrate? Do you use bubblers? I guess I would have to know more about your tank in general to see why the humidity is high- like what substrate- is there moss or sponges in there etc :) The bathroom would only stay humid while the showers are going on and my goodness how big...

Thats why I like hoods because you are heating the whole tank- you can always make cooler spots with huts and stuff- when I have an ISO up and have a clamp on or something they always huddle where the heat is like yours. You might want to invest in a hood that houses day and night bulbs for more eve...

no to bed a beast

Bed a beast is a no no as chestersmom a crabber on here did research and found it contained soil (peat moss?) which has lead to bacterial infections! Not sure if the product has changed. The thread is in archieves here somewhere

Wow! That's really interesting. What do you do with the molter? Is this just for cleaning/new substrate purposes, or to isolate the molter from the group? I imagine trying to move that entire mound would be hard to move without severely disturbing the crab. Also, question not related to molter, but...

generally the ones in the food are not- the bad ones have 8 legs and will be found on the crabs. I am not 100% but I am sure the booklice can come in different tones of color like the bad mites can. EE is a way to attract the booklice. I know I have had other strange bugs in my tanks from time to ti...
