Thank you and me either ;)


I was thinking about getting hermit crabs originally but they scrape the glass at night and would have kept me up since the tank will be in my room ;A;

Yes, they do become very active at night when they're healthy. However, I kind of just got just to the noise (like how people don't notice the noice of fish filters). I like them now, but didn't at fist. The main reason for this was startup costs. The correct setup is pricey... I paied over $200 in all. I know many hardcore petowners think that is not much, but it was some serious dough to drop for hermit crabs.

Cycleing is when you start to get the bactria culture going in your aquarium before you add fish. Usualy it takes a day or two

depends if you add biological matter into the water or not. Like "live" sand and "live" drift wood

wow thats a lot! :O
I dont think i would have gotten used to the sound, I remember having them when i was much younger and the scratching would keep my up, fish filters are soothing to me though XD I always seem to sleep better with one in my room X)








hmmm from what I've read, doesnt cycling take a few weeks?
Course I havent really read up on that yet, so I'm not terribly sure o3o
