Classroom crab update and pics!

Post by PeekaBoo2013 » Tue Apr 07, 2020 10:14 pm

So you might remember that I'm a teacher but due it's for the school closing I had to bring them home, even digging up a molter. Everything turned out fine and he was in 10 gallon isolation, the other 2 in a 15 gal. Well once I put them together I felt that 15 gallon wasn't enough room, but I also didn't want to go too big-as I have a 40 gal at the school. Sooo I bought a 20 gallon and set it up today. The sub is 6in on the short side, 8 on the other,but I know it'll settle some but I have a crab in 1.5 inch opening shells so I wanted it deep for him. The small and big one are in the pic. Medium one was mia. ImageImageImage
