Crabs are going great...I intended to re-scape their tank' date=' but haven't done so......perhaps I'll do it now ????? Just waiting for the eagles game to start !!! Go the mighty EAGLES ![/quote']

How are you planning on scaping the crab tank? Stylewise i mean.

You definately mean Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL don't you? Hehehehehehehe.

I had to laugh all over again about this thread, after mentioning on an overseas forum that I might be getting some of these crabs and the first reply from another member was "I think you need to make a journal about your crabs". I had to find a way of replying that could not be considered rude or offensive (the other forum is a stickler for "family friendly" and I am a MOD there so have to be extra careful), while letting the member know that them referring to my crabs was a riot in the comedy department.

Well there are worse things I could bring home than crabs LOL. I am not sure about if you need to take holidays. I have made a bit of an itinery for stuff to do up there just don't know how long all the things will take. I do know that we will be in Cairns at least twice before heading home and I really want to see you at least the afternoon prior to us heading home so any goodies have the least time being bagged/ conaintered.

Not long now till the big road trip, you sure you will be ready? Also did you want any tiger lotus? I have a few plants spare, along with a couple of other plants that I am not 100% sure of their ID.

All good it makes me laugh every time, besides I have broad shoulders.

The more people that I have with Crabs the happier I am, really why should I be the only one having all that fun???

So come on people spread the love and the Crabs, you know Dean will slap out wrists soon.

I'll drop my filthy mind for a second, i think Dave might have told me this, but theres a NT freshwater desert crab isn't there Bob? How do you reckon they'd go outside in Sydney during winter? Stopping the little fellows from climbing into my plant grow tubs may be another issue.

I would not be sure they would survive, but no one has done temp tests on them. The green one in my photos might though as it is from down south to, it could also be the same one Dave is taking about?

Really you need them inside to get to like them and breed them.

I think when I go and get the Hot pink and Sky Blue ones every one will want Crabs

That's just cruel tempting us with sky Blue crabs, I bet that is something I could get Hubby interested in since he loves his blue guppies and has shown interest in blue shrimp. His ideal is a tank of blue critters.

Possibly, possibly. I'll have a better look into it! I could get a few tanks set up on my porch, could get a heater in them i guess. Only time will tell!

How many colours are there?!

There's a lot of girls joining up lately!

Anything is a yes. I've started to take no's as yes's.

      Mine is a DIY Chiller, as you know a peltier has a hot side and cold side, for the cold side to stay cold, the hot side must be kept cold and with a heatsink and fan to cool it down. My DIY chiller has two sides and two water block. blue aluminum block with tube leading to the outlet of the canister filter and back to the tank to chill the tank water. copper block is to cool the hot side of the peltier, with copper block to the radiator/fan and a water pump looping. The problem is the tube from the water pump came off, apparently the plastic from the pump started to melt and the tube came off and the looping side had no water, so the copper water block stayed hot all the time with heat transferred to the cold side of the peltier also heating the water. since the copper takes time to cool down, most of the heat and the room hot temp had already heat the tank water to about 45 C.

      Try testing it again and see what you get or to confirm that the previous were right, especially the higher Ph reading is all I can recommend! If there is some explanation for the difference hopefully someone will reply and let you know, but I expect there won't actually be a difference if you do it again? Simon

      No that's not normal. But I don't know which tube in your loop had come off. Can you show us?   Yes that would have helped a bit, and at least give KMS more time to have found the issue by turning off the chiller. As I understand, kms has a peltier style chiller, and a tube of the pump had come off, which meant that hot water from the hot side of the peltier flowed back into the tank. So if the chiller was on the same temp controller, it would have turned off the chiller at around 26degC. The tank might have got warmer in his room, but it would have been at a much slower rate, and certainly would not have reached 45degC.

      I'm using the API master test kit with the dropper bottles. I was just very confused at how much more akaline the water was coming out of the filter compared to the water out in the open. I can't imagine how this fluctuating change in pH is going to be beneficial for my crs.
    • sdlTBfanUK
      What type of test are you doing strip or drip? I use drip tests and always ignore the first attempt as no matter how well I clean and keep the test set it is often way out of line. Las time first test was Ph8, second test Ph6. Sometimes first attempt looks ok so I have no idea what is going on????? If you just tried once it may be worth testing again? Simon
