If you are just looking for products to make this whole process a lot easier, I would totally check out underwaterislands.com. They have these cool underwater habitats for crabs so you don't have to leave your tanks half filled.

1.5 tsp per cup would be HALF a cup per gallon, not 5 cups per gallon.

What about heating? And what is the salt water for?
HermitGuy101 (author)  JohnJY5 years ago
it says heat. and the salt water helps their exo skeleton during molting. In other words, if you don't have salt water, they will die!
Well I just got Sheldon and Tank, so this has been helpful information, thank you.
