Can I see your water pools?

Post by HermieCrabs » Wed Jul 08, 2020 11:47 am

I am redoing our water pools and I would love to see photos of how you have constructed yours! Both fresh and salt water, ladders, rocks, etc.

If you have a photo, would you post it here? It would help me decide how to change ours up!

Thanks in advance!

Interested. New crabber here. My wife and I are about to build a 125 gallon tat and am looking to make infinity pool systems using 3+ gallon containers and smaller 1+ gallon containers and will be implementing a waterfall to keep the water flowing. It works perfect in my head :lol: . I would like to (eventually) have a self-sufficient bio set-up so I am starting with baby-steps.

Mine is really basic compared to some hardcore ones i’ve come across. Simple air pump system from Walmart cost me under $20. Added some mesh to use as a ramp and zip tied them through a hole in the container and added rocks. My dad drilled a small hole into the lid of the tank to wire the tube through. I’m curious to see some other pools as well. Image

Here's mine.
Freshwater is a small tupperware container (ladder made out of mesh, has pothos in it) and far right, saltwater pool - glass siliconed in, access by rocks to submerge.Image

Here's a link to the cycled water pools i made last year out of 2.5 gallon aquariums. My crabs love them!

It’s hard to tell in these pics but they are deep enough for the crabs to submerge. Although I will be getting something deeper sometime. As well as hopefully finding at least a 75 gallon tank. Image
