Wow! I'm really digging the extension. That really adds a lot of climbing space.

So this extension has been a huge hit, the crabs are tanning pretty much daily in groups. It's been super stable and I'm not losing any humidity through it. I hope the crabs are as happy about it as I am! Thanks for watching!

Yes, depending on the version of bulb you use they need to be a certain distance away and then it only works for a certain distance, so it's very tough to include UVB properly in a tank. As long as they can't get within 6 inches of the bulb you can use the reptisun 10.0 which is now reptile 150 I believe.
