I dont think I'll have a problem with the flowers, but if I do it won't be hard to remove them. I really wanted them though to add some color to the tank. :) Just glass. Each pool holds a gallon of water. I used an aquarium sealant my dad found at lowes hardware. I don't know how much it was, but I ...

Building Pools & Waterfall (Pic Heavy)

I decided the 55gal needed a serious renovation, as you can see from the following pictures that my tat was not the best. Though it did hold a temperature of 75-80*F and a humidity of about 80% - that's what my crabs are most active at. http://i50.tinypic.com/5ltdgn.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/98adxy...

I like the idea of glass shells. As long as they are shaped like natural shells (inside & out) I can't imagine why the crabs would not like them. As for privacy, we offer many hiding/dark places within our crabitats that they can hide all they want. & I agree. If the crab chooses the shell, who are ...

Before long, you'll be increasing your numbers. [smilie=laugh.gif] As Tremors has said, pine is unsafe for hermit crabs. There are tons of other things you can add to your crabitat for them to crawl on and hide in. Personally, I like to handle my crabs. It's best to leave them alone for a couple of ...

If my tank gets lower than 80 and higher than 85 (give or take a few, of course) they tend to hide and not come out as much - so thats generally where I keep my temperature.

If you can, you need to experiment with different temperatures and figure out what your crabs enjoy best. :)

This thread has definitely got me thinking. I'm moving into a dorm next semester (my family will look after them for me), they won't let me take my crabs ( [smilie=soapbox.gif] I state my argument regularly), but the end of next summer I'll be moving into an appartment close to the college simply be...
