Setting Up the 75G

Started placing new objects where I want them. Hopefully I'll start mixing sub over the next few days. My screen top was just delivered today. Hope to be set up by next week!

Most of my crabs are in the moss pit, which will be easy to transplant into the 75G. Wish I could read their thoughts when they come up!

Awesome!!! How long do you think it'll take to get it where you want it?

Also - what did you use to make your pools out of? I've been thinking about using KK for the pools, since they're tall and can reach the top of the sub. But I've also heard they crack so I'd be careful of that.

They're KK's, I've used them in the past and the only time I've ever had them crack is while I'm moving them. I may order a few more and double them so it can be a little stronger.

They love them. I have a few that have taken interest in helping me feed and keep up the crabitat.

Today's project is to begin moving sub into the new tank!
