And sorry to hear about your crabs btw.
The ammonia levels are very close to zero, but not quite there. I will get better tests. I have a good ph tester, but the rest of the tests I have are strips.

I appreciate your help. I would really like to have a few vampire crabs, but I feel so bad about what happened that I don't know if I want to try again. I don't want to risk hurting them.

Hopefully the pet store I bought them from can help. I'll stop by and ask them a few questions.

Thank you for your help!
