Re: Vertical or Horizontal?

Space isn't necessarily an issue for me, and I do have a hampster wheel. I had a bad, metal one before, and they used it a LOT. It took them a long time to figure it out though. I have a new hampster wheel which is safer in many ways, but they never figured it out. I have a 20L and so I have wondere...

Vertical or Horizontal?

Would crabs prefer space vertically, or horizontally? Whenever I use a lot of vertical things I don't have much horizontal space (if that makes sense) or vice versa.

Re: Crabs aren’t very active

When my crabs came up from their molt, I noticed they would be a lot more active :)

Re: Share your crab stories!

I have a story! So I have 3 crabs in a 20L and one of my crabs (lets call him crab #1) he is big and the dominant crab, and I have crab #2 (she likes picking on crab #3 but is scared of crab #1) and crab #3 (who is the smallest, and very fast). So, crab 3 was sitting in a corner near the moss pit, a...

Re: Tank Temerature and Humidity

Oh, I'm sorry I didn't clarify. I got the humidity up with the moss and the way you recommended it to be. I will try the towel idea. Thanks!

I got the humidity up, but I am more concerned with the heat than the humidity.

Re: Tank Temerature and Humidity

So I have put in some Mosser Lee Sphagnum moss before, but when ever I put it in, t would mold. So how much would I make it damp? And, how would I calibrate the gauges? Thanks for all of the help guys!

Re: Is crabgrass in crabitat okay?

I don't know how that would turn out. I apparently though get stalks of lettuce and let it grow in my crabitat, since it is touching a relatively damp substrate, which acts like it is dirt being watered. I would need an older crab owner for the answer.

Re: Tank Temerature and Humidity

Oh, and I also forgot, I am a first-time crab owner. I started out NOT GOOD at all with some little 5 gallon with two of the four crabs I have today. Then I got a 10 gallon, but I didn't put enough substrate. They were so much happier in that, and I got another crab. They all survived one molt (one ...
