    I'm sure they will....if they like a shell, then they'll strip down anywhere;)
    I don't think they know any difference in the height.....since they are prone to walk off of high places anyway.

    Well I meant like what if their 'naked' and fall from the caddy? I'm afraid he or she might get hurt or maybe evened killed. Could that happen? Has that happened to any of you?

    I would presume nakedness would make them less protected in a fall, but that sounds like a scenario that would be less likely than anything to happen, but then again....these little guys are so unpredictable (sort of:p) I would only worry if I had a particular crab that "streaked" frequently.

    In my experience, when they're naked, they're generally not active enough to be exploring.

    I personally like the UTHs. In one of my tats it is 80* on the substrate, while it goes down to 70* on the other side. I also have a side mounted on my 10g. It keeps the side at about 80*, but three inches away from it the temp is 70* to 75*.
