Re: Is all playsand safe

Polling your best experiences, how much water do you add to the 5:1 play sand/EE mix? I heard over-saturation can have negative side effects. Thanks!

Re: Water dishes

Right now we are using bottles of saltwater from Petco. We also had bottles of dechlorinated water but bought the ZooMed conditioner today... I’ve heard mixed reviews about all things ZooMed so I’m slightly concerned about that as well. Somehow my 7 year old has sent me down a black hole of hermit ...

Re: Is all playsand safe

Is there a better substrate, such as all eco earth vs. mix of eco earth and play sand mix? I mistakenly made my first tat with calci sand and will be redoing it in the next month or so. Using a mix of ee and playsand helps maintain the correct consistency. You'll want to remove the calcium sand asa...

Show Me Your Water Dishes & Pools!

I am trying out the lunch meat container idea. I also picked up some mesh fabric from Walmart today. When the woman asked what I was buying the fabric for we engaged in a conversation about hermit crabs because her grandson has one and I think I enlightened her about what the crab shops never tell y...

Re: Show Me Your Water Dishes & Pools!

These come from Wal-Mart in the cold food section. We buy a lot of lunch meat for sandwiches and this is what they come in. So i tossed the lids, added mesh, and doubled them up!

I have two shallow dishes for the salt & freshwater, but have read that deeper dishes are preferred. I would love to see pics of your water dishes/pools for some ideas for mine. Thanks!

Re: My Crabs Won’t Come Out of Their Cave; is This Normal?

First off, welcome! I agree that your humidity is too low, it needs to be at or above 80 percent. Where has it ever been at least 80%? [emoji848] We've always recommended the min to be around 70%, and ideally should be somewhere in the region of high 70's to low 80's. As long as its above 70, the O...
