Right? I have 1 crab who used it profusely he seems to have taught another friend. Hopefully the trend catches on!

Thank you! It was less skill and more experimentation and resourcefulness, to be honest. But it came out great, so I'm very pleased! :}

Yay, thank you! Yes, I think my crabs are really loving it! I still plan on adding more hides and maybe more fake plants, but I'm very pleased with how it's turned out. :}
