Burying Shells

I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to keep the crabs from burying their extra shells? I saw some folks keep them on a second level, but I only have a 10-gallon tank and don’t really have the space for a second level. Other thoughts? Thank you!

Re: Crabitat okay?

Thank you all for checking it out & giving feedback! The containers are little drawer organizers I found on amazon - https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0118B1Y ... asin_title

The substrate is ~5 inches deep. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200827/94f6124170b45a6d448b5343db9f7892.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20...

Crabitat okay?

Substrate is a mix of coconut fiber and sand (I find this hard to spot clean...can’t see where needs cleaned up, so I ju...

I have some urgency to make sure I give them well-rounded food quickly, because I THINK one of them is molting and I don’...
