Good luck! Do you know if you'll be able to use EE this time around? And if all the crabs are going in together? (Should be enough space)

Awesome! I meant if you're going to add the EE in the 20 gallon if there was a miscommunication there, sorry haha

Yes, I'm going to mix the play sand with the ee. Trying to wait until I get the big tank though

Image it's a work in progress. I plan to get bigger water bowls and a bubbler, still trying to figure out how to get the climbing net to stick. No luck with suction cups

Looking good! Looks like all you need is a few more turbos and you really are doing right by those lil guys. Kudos on developing their tank so quickly. :) Also congrats for the upgrade!

What kind of sea salt can I use other than instant ocean? Is Api aquarium salt ok?

Unfortunately that is freshwater aquarium salt. What you are looking for is marine grade salt. It is sold in many fish stores, as well as pet smart. Oceanic and Kent are a few other popular brands. Ask the sales associate for saltwater tank salt. I'm going to link our water dechlorinater guide, it lists several of the known ok salt brands. viewtopic.php?f=25&t=92553
