    Great tank, Hermez! You said you've collected those climbing things and stuff from years of keeping hermit crabs, how long have you been keeping hermit crabs anyway? Just curious.:eek:

    I don't know what I'm going to do hauling sand out of my new tank next year. I have a question about the sand. So I bought this playsand and stuck it in my tank and started misting it (it was bone dry) and then I stuck the decorations etc in. But the sand is still completly dry so I dumped a whole bucket of water on adn it's still dry. After I finally got it all moist it dryed up by the next week. I can be mixing up the sand with molters so is there any way I could prevent this?
    Thanks

    your sand should be the right moisture to start with so you wont be digging up molters- keeping it moist is easy with regular misting or lightly dumping water where you know no crabs are-

    Thanks. I've put all the crabas in the 75 gallon tank. I have decided with molters and all it would be too stressful to take my crabs one the 2 mnth trip cross country I will be taking. I have a freidn interested in takign care of them and have contacted several people on hermit crab association. I really want to take them but it's too much. If you know anyone in seattle, please let me know. I'm goign to really miss them. When I come back they will go back in their main 120 gallon tank and I'll remix the sand etc.
    Thanks.

    Even though i have a golden retriever, i think it's wrong for people to think of pit bull and think mean and agressive. when i lived in NC i lived with a couple who had a pit bull and her name was Sassy. she was the biggest baby. haha unfortunilty i went to let her in the house so i could go to work and found her dead. we think someone hit her and never reported it. it's weird though i never heard any unusuall noise outside, i'm still baffled till this day

    That's sad. :( Poor little dog. Did you live on a busy street? They should just stop training pitbuls to be mean. I think they train them to be like that and the things I've heard they do to those dogs to make them mean are horrible. I don't know much about them though.

    we lived in a small town in a culvert type area. i'm thinking it might have been out neighbor, him and his wife didn't like us or the dogs. at first we thought they poisoned Sassy but the toxicology came back clean so i guess we figured someone hit her with a car or something. oh well

    My one dog is like 1/2 pit and she is a big baby but if you dont know her she will scare you - then she will whine.........:D

    I have 3 small dogs and people say they are more afraid of little dogs- I dont get that :confused:

    I do. The little ones are probably more yappy etc. I personally like the bigger ones better but my next dog (My lab is now 11) has to be small because we have to fly with her.

    I personally don't like the little dogs, My family has always had big dogs. our first one was a german shepard mut. our 2nd one was a golden retriever mut, 3rd one was mainly Neufoundland but with a little mut. and our current dog is a 9 yr old Red-Coated Pure breed golden retriever. so i've always liked the big dogs.
