Re: New crab owner in need of guidance

Ok, I'm trying to figure out how to post multiple pics at one time. In the mean time it will just be 1 pic per post! Lol

Here is Zinnia, our only crab who has yet to go under with the rest!

Re: Mold??

Also took out all shells, cleaned and boiled them. Took out a couple of the cholla sitting upright on substrate and replaced with 1 new one. Just added my pools with air pumps. Not sure what else I could do to prevent the mold... Temp is right on at 80 degrees. Where do you keep your tank? I've onl...

Re: Mold??

Ugh. Well this is weird. I just re-calibrated my zoomed hygrometer - I did check calibration when I first got it and it was spot on - and now it is reading 5 units lower?!?! Does this happen frequently? So now although it is reading my humidity to be at 80, it is really 75 :/. So maybe the pools wit...

Mold??

Wondering what methods you all use to decrease mold growth in the tank? I have found mold growing on the moss frequently that I've had to throw them out and re-wash and boil shells:/. I am planning on adding both sw and fw baths soon and wondering if putting in air pumps would help reduce the mold? ...

Reptisun led uvb hood?

New to raising hermit crabs! Wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Reptisun led uvb hoods? I have a 20 gallon tank with glass top. Humidity and heat r stable at 80. Really just looking to add lighting with the hood on top. Would the uvb be able to get through the glass top??

We have been looking for guidance as we have moved along in this new journey! Initially started out with a wired cage from Petsmart and as soon as we learned the...
