I'm finally done with all of my toppers!!!

Here all three of my tanks: 100 gallon with 67 gallon topper and two 75 gallon tanks with 50 gallon toppers. I will go to tapatalk to post pictures. :)

I remember in the archives I saw a picture of one person who had multiple tanks, with a tube connecting to all of the tanks, so the crabs can come and go as they please. Seems like a cool idea

GB, what are the shelves inside your toppers that you have branches laying on?

Thank you everyone!

@Stellacrab - those are plexiglass shelves that I cut. I covered them with coco fiber wall. There was only one piece that I left uncovered.

Im waiting for the day you break down these tanks completely and just turn the room into a dedicated crab room! ;)

Nicely done, they all look amazing. Particularly enjoy the 1st 75g topper, firm fav.

So, first of all, those are probably the coolest tanks i've ever seen!! legit
second, where did you find cholla wood that long?!? all i can find are 6 inch pieces :?
and, the entire room is a crab room! I LOVE IT!! We have a spare room that i've been joking we should turn into a gallery for all our tanks (crab tank, snake tank, and multiple aquariums) but your room is seriously so awesome! It looks mighty peaceful, i'd live there!

I want a room I can go to when I'm feeling.....crabby. XD But all puns aside, you did a wonderful job on all of these. They all look so well put together. I especially love how natural they all feel. Good job!! :cheer: :cheer:

Thank you! You can find cholla that size on Ebay :) Just make sure it has not been treated with chemicals. :)
Yes! I do have a box turtle, a pacman frog, isopod tote, crickets and super worms in there too...but for the most part the crab tanks take up the majority of the room. :)

Oh, so that’s what they are! Do they enjoy sitting on them?
Now, you can sit back and relax inside of a peaceful room whenever you need to enjoy some scenery! :)
