Re: DIY/Cheap alternatives

It looks great. The only suggestion I would make is to put some shells or other flat item under the legs of the white rack. Once you add the substrate, the legs will start to sink otherwise.

Re: Getting settled?

They also dig to destress, and it sounds like they came from a pretty stressful environment. I'm willing to bet they're coming out, just really late or when nobody is around

Re: New tank set-up! How's it look?

Nice! Kinda jealous of those pools. Do the crabs fully submerge or just toe dip?

Re: Making Your Own Food

I use my oven or a solar oven in the summer. I put it on the lowest temp and keep an eye on whatever is in there. Flowers, leaves, fruit/veg, eggshells, etc.

Re: Good idea/bad idea?

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the replies. Gives me food for thought.
