Thanks! I actually picked it up at a Dollar Tree. It came with suction cups but I swapped them for clear Command hooks because I never have luck with suction cups.

What type of silicone would be appropriate? I've found this, is this harmful at all or will it be okay?Image

I believe that many in the US rave about that brand - and type... but I'll let someone else comment.


(In saying that, if it's 100% silicone with no additives, it should be fine!)

(To LeeHasCrabs) Wow! Looks great! Did you use command hooks, suction cups, glue or something else to get yours on?
I have had pets in the past, but my family can’t have any furry or feathered ones due to allergies. I usually try my best to help and currently trying to set up a crabitat. I also try to treat others with Love!❤️

amazing work!
I have 4 purple pinchers. Crush, Bubbles, Sheldon, Sandy, and little Angelo. And I love Jesus! He is the way, the truth and the life, and he knew what he was doing when he made hermit crabs!☺

Where did you find the wood materials to make that level?

I made a wooden table and my crabs climb on it to hang out and eating as I put my food dish there. Image

This is the most amazing crabitate I’ve ever seen! How big is your bottom tank ?
