Hermit Crab Care

Heater Troubles...Please help! - KitKat - 4/24/2008
Hi! First of all, Katherine (but most people call me KitKat) I'm 13 and just got four crabses this week! They live in a ten gallon tank with a 10-20 gallon heater, but I can only get the temperature up to about 70 degrees - just a couple of degrees hotter than the the house! The terrarium lid does have netting, but I cover that with a cloth to keep humidity (and hopefully heat) in! The sand is really warm but my thermometer (at least all the ones in my house!) say it's only 70! Please help! I know this site has been a teensy bit unactive, but please respond!
