Oh my goodness, you all have amazing tanks :) I feel I am not providing my hermies with enough sand now.....I will definately be getting a bigger tank so I can add the levels like most of you have. I feel I will be on here asking tons of advice when that time comes, hopefully soon ;)

Perhaps this should be stickied in the crabitat conditions section. I would have loved this resource when I was first starting.

It is very nice and also a great opportunity for everyone to see the pictures and see how others are taking care of their crabs. :) I will move the thread to Crabitat Conditions, and if it keeps getting enough traffic and is being utilized often, making it a sticky would be no problem. :wink:

My 20 gallon long :)

Its a work in progress. I actually just ordered all kinds of goodies online(including real hemp fishnet instead of the icky plastic stuff ive got in here at the moment) can't wait until it all arrives! :D

I think i'm going for a complete remodel when I get all the new stuff, the way it looks now doesnt seem like the most efficient way to use the limited space I have.

Here's our 15 gallon as of today. I'm seriously thinking of moving our crabs to my 25 gallons... I didn't think I'd enjoy ''crabbing'' this much :P
