Re: Hey There! I'm New and Old lol

Re: Dry Suggestions?

You can save a whole lot of money by just buying organic produce and drying it yourself.

By any fresh food items that you trust placed them in in a dehydrator and dry them out.

Re: UTH Sapping humidity from air

First calibrate your hygrometer be sure its not the culprit.
Seal the top with cling wrap or press n seal?
Add moss pits?
Add bubblers to water pools?
Your substrate is sand castle damp right? Damp enough to hold shape not wet enough to glop appart?

Re: Size Differences

I think they know that crabs eat crabs. So they assume a larger would dominate and chow down. But everthing ive read sounds like crabs are mostly at risk molting (and are eaten)or during a shell war (torn up)
