Coming into winter they'll slow down dramatically if its cold enough.. I dont keep mine with a heater for population control purposes.. otherwise their non stop as I have 80+ saddled/berried girls. I have my reds in their own 2ft so I dont mind if numbers drop or tapper off.. not that they ever do. Hope that helps :)

In short the contraception is cold weather I think. But dont go below the 17-18°c ..depending on where u live u might need a heater for winters peak.. then take out again come spring.

We get DAMN cold here and my house has always been like a fridge in winter so heaters are a must. I am keeping a few of the best colours and then putting the rest with the culls in the fish tank!!!! Not the tiny babies though I'm not that mean they need a fighting chance!!!:encouragement:

To slow them down dramatically only put ur temp heater on 18.. they wont die but they wont really breed although the odd still might but her berried period lengthens

      They were purchased after the incident, but I'm happy I found the crabs.😅

      I use cheap no name brand heaters now. I use them with my Inkbird temp controller, so I don't have to worry about the heater failing. ✌️

      😲 Oh no !!! 😭 At least you still have the micro crabs and 3 red wines.

      Agree on what jayc said, it's best to get a branded one for reliablitity, but even branded one do have a differences in temperature, +- .5 to 1 degree celcius which is normal.

      Most aquarium heaters have a built in thermostat, that will heat when the temp drops 1degree below the set temp and stop heating when the temps hit 1 degree above the set temp. So get one from Eheim, Fluval, Aqua One, Aquael, Hydor, to name a few brands. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Eheim_Jager_Heater_25w_p/jg3611.htm or  https://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Submersible-Glass-Aquarium-Heater/dp/B0027VMPXA/ref=lp_19171761011_1_23?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1568762295&sr=1-23  Depending on where you are from.   A temperature controller like the one kms posted is good as a backup protection for the built in thermostat in cheap aquarium heaters. And it can be used on heaters that do not have built in thermostats. Just make sure you buy one that is a suitable size for your tank. A 25W or 50W will be enough.
