How did you attach the egg crate to the tank wall?
The egg crate reaches the bottom so the sand holds it against the wall.

We always see our crabs up high in the tank Like that. We build walking ledges across the back with egg crate. I think we see our crabs up high in the tank more than on the substrate.
That's a great idea!

The picture above the wheel, it was a favorite spot of one crab. Then I've seen 2. They can't fit anymore now. [emoji1787] I don't know why they like it that much. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200704/812c7e4e45925d90f44b51630fb0d7f0.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200704/a46ec024fd59a60...

Re: Hello!!!

You can get plastic plants at the dollar store. And plastic containers for the pools. Make sure they have plenty of calcium and protein. Honey is a great energy food. And welcome!

Re: Rescuing A Crab Too Big for It's Shell

Today I rescued a crab from a pet store who I named Cocoa. Now I'm going back to rescue another who can barely fit into its shell. What I want to know is, how should I proceed when taking it home?
