Very nice! Are the gem stones mainly for decorative and weighing down purposes? And do you find the air stones to be a good addition or necessity? I’ve also been thinking about this.

Thanks!

Personally I find the air stones to be a GREAT addition. I had to mist constantly but with the air stones in both pools my humidity stays up without misting. Plus it's moving the water, so I only do water changes every 3 days instead of daily.

Those gemstones are in the container below the main one, so the crabs can’t touch them. I just did that so I coukd remember which is salt or fresh water, and for decoration. Airstones are great, I love mine! :)

I use stacks of shells for the stairway into the pools, they aren't siliconed down so that way I can scrub the shells when I clean the water dishes. I've never had issues with the crabs knocking the stacks over, so it works for me.

Does that make sense?

What did you use to make the holes for the zip ties?
