6 Easy Steps For Keeping A Clean Crabitat




Boil Sponges: This is a quick and easy step you can do at least once a week. Simply place a cup of water in your microwave, and microwave it on high for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and place your sponges into the boiling water.
Clean Food Dishes: It's easy- every time you pull a food dish out of the tank, simply wipe it down with a hot rag, or save an old tooth brush and use it to scrub anything that might be stuck onto the sides. It will help keep mold from growing on old particles of leftover food.
Clean Water Dishes: This is especially important for the saltwater dish. In order to make sure that the salt-to-water-ratio is always right you should change out the water every day. And naturally fresh drinking water should be changed out just as often. Just changing out the waters should keep these dishes clean.
Wipe Down The Sides: If you wake up in the morning and see that your little creatures were very active last night, then it might be time to scrub down the sides. If there is sand sprayed up and little dirty claw prints all over, just take a wet cloth and quickly wipe off the sides. It's quick, easy, simple, and will keep your crabitat looking nice.
Scoop Out Old Food: The morning after feeding your little darlings, take a plastic spoon and scoop out any clumps of old food- especially pieces of meat and fish. Although your pets may be storing them away for later, it's best to avoid food rot and just give them something new to preoccupy them instead of allowing them to keep pieces of leftovers in a warm humid environment.
Be An Interior Designer: Redecorate your crabitat! It's fun to move around ornaments and create little new activities for your crabbies. And when you redecorate, naturally you clean up a little too. You get to wipe off any plants, nets, and plastic pieces. It's a great way to keep you motivated, your crabitat clean, and your pets excited about exploring!
