Does this heater work for red claw crab?
its a reptile heater but i wonder if this works for red claw crab because im not going to add alot of water to it only a little. heata.jpg picture by sai559 - Photobucket
I would guess no, because it says "do not submerse" (in water).
I would suggest a regular aquatic heater, stack rocks and/or driftwood that reaches above the water line, so the crab has somewhere to go to get out of the water.
how about if i put the heater on top of the gravel or a surface?
Water and Electicity are dangerous together. DO NOT use it anywhere near water. This item is design to go in a Gecko's or Lizard's tank on a sand bottom.
There are lots of Submersible heaters that can be used in water. There are a coupld of Betta tank heaters that can go under gravel too.... just learning about these myself...
Here is one... http://www.amazon.com/Hydor-HEATER-Aquarium-Heater-Watts/dp/B0006JLPFE
and also one that woud technically go into the bottom of a fish bowl underneath the gravel. Zoo Med Betta Therm Mini Size Betta Bowl Heater - Heaters & Accessories - Fish - PetSmart
I have yet to find either of these in a store in Ontario... maybe you will have better luck finding one or buy online.
