You can't and don't ever want to put a heater IN a cage for crabs. This little heater sticks to the side of plastic heaters and keeps the temperatures up a little. It's very low wattage, so not very warm, but just enough to maintain a comfortable temp for your crabs.

I personally wouldn't recommend using ANY heating device with plastic. It's just not worth the risk. Though that depends greatly on the type of plastic used among other factors. I use a 10 gallon glass terrarium for my hermit crabs, and I highly suggest you do the same!

I have 4 crabs and heat them with a 40W day bulb and a 40W night bulb. I bought a double bulb hood from petco and, at the appropriate time, simply switch one on and the other bulb off. In my 10 gallon tank with screen lid, the tank is a constant 85%. I also bought a reptifogger to regulate humidity.

You could get an undertank heater pad or a heater emitter or just hang a lamp over the tank.

Yes, it does its job in regards to plastic cages. Difference is, do not leave it as long as plastic will heat faster than glass.

You likely will still need a heater. It also depends on the conditions of where you live, and if the weather is primarily warm. Are you using this tank for fish or for things like hermit crabs. Btw, getting sand from shore can be a bit risky, you never known was bacteria or things like mites may be in there.

This heater is designed for use with a 5 gallon terrarium. If you are using a 10 gallon glass tank, the appropriate heater is the RH-4, Small Size Reptitherm Under Tank Heater. It is designed for use on 10 - 20 gallon tanks.
