New Crab Mom

Post by Shakiofborg » Thu Oct 04, 2018 1:26 pm

Hi all! I'm new to crabs, got my first 2 on Sept 13th and 5 more yesterday. I've used a lot of information from.this forum to get my setup going, along with the fantastic group on Reddit. My analog is a temp until my digital therm/humid. is sorted out by Amazon- the first one they sent stopped working!

Welcome to the board! Your tank setup does look really nice and lush, good job in decorating!

Thanks! They are! I currently have a 55 gallon. I'm looking forward to adding another tank on top for more climbing space. All but 2 of my crabs are tiny, smaller than a quarter! The 2 "big" crabs are still pretty small too.

Thank you so much! I try to get something every paycheck that will make them happy.... more moss or maybe a bird ladder is next on the list.
