glass lid (ventilation)

Post by bocandi bootlegged » Sun Jul 26, 2020 10:10 am

Hi, i have a glass lid that i stole from one of my picture frames, it doesnt have holes on the top but i do leave a sliver open, is that ok? i open the lid twice a day. The humidity it 80+ normally. Just worried that my crabs will suffocate if my lid doesnt have vents

Your crabbies will be ok with no holes in the lid. They get air exchange when you lift the lid to do tank maintenance. I never though of using glass from a picture for a lid. How clever!
