This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

You would be really sad if you found a drowned crab.

You can use craft mesh, and fish tank decor for them to get in and out of their pools with.
Yes, I would be sad if I found my crab drowned. Craft mesh, can you send a link?

I wasn't trying to be drastic, but it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Here is a link, so you know what it looks like. https://www.walmart.com/ip/7-Mesh-Count ... gL2gPD_BwE

The craft stores sell it in individual sheets for 70 cents a piece - in all sorts of colors, including clear.

I think this link shows you how to attach them to your pools: Double dish bubblers: http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/ ... r#p1030806
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

Thank you! I'll get some mesh tomorrow!

Heres the updated crabitat:
I added plastic mesh for the water pools and I also got some FMR hermit crab treat which my crab seems to love!

Your pools look great! I would just recommend making your substrate deeper :)

The substrate is 6 inches but the picture makes it look less deep.

I had trouble affording organic and non-gmo goods until I stopped eating out.
I've had crabs for eight years and I don't buy organic food for them. I just can't afford it (and I don't eat out either so don't say that's why). I do feed them fresh produce from my garden in summer, but otherwise they get the same grocery store food I've gotten and they've been just fine.

I'm sure you're not the only one. :)
