Re: Food dish on second level?

And I just used a lighter and screwdriver to poke holes in the dish drainer for the suction cups......

Re: Food dish on second level?

I don't know what your setup looks like but I was able to create a pretty cool and spacious second level in my tank using a plastic dish drainer and some locking suction cups. I also got the Flukers Spring loaded bamboo bars to use fo reinforcement on the corners. However, I cut the dish drainer to...

So here I go....

Thanks! They use the ladder constantly. They even sleep on it. :) but I also put a coconut fiber mat on the back of the tank and they use that to get to the second level also.

New Owner/Burrowing Question

If I remember correctly, I had seen a post recently from an admin stating her recommendation for E's is no less than a 40g tank... the feeler fights are normal crab behavior as long as they aren't trying to pinch each other or remove each other from their shells. They can throw down with the best of...

New Owner/Burrowing Question

From what I understand the Ecuadorians do need a little extra room, in particular they need a lot of substrate bc they really enjoy digging. I'm still new to hermit crabs as well and have an Ecuadorian. They are all different personalities but from what I gather the Ecuadorians tend to be a little m...

New Owner/Burrowing Question

Look up Info on Ecuadorian hermits. That is what they look like to me. However, the red one is not the same species and might be a purple pincher hermit.

Re: So here I go....

I didn't realize I had two different kinds until I got home to Indiana. After having done research on them, I now know a huge indicator would have been the two distinctly different type of shell openings they were wearing and their color. But we were rushed and I didn't notice. My little E is very s...
