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

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.
