New crabitat! (Pic Heavy)

Post by bre.marie » Sat Apr 16, 2016 2:31 am

SO! I work at a nursing home and they decided to get rid of their fish tank, and long story short they gave it to me and my husband! Its been sitting in the dining room for a few months now while we worked on some other projects and collected stuff for setting it up. Finally got it set up and the conditions good and the crabbies moved in! They love it!

a few details:
-160-ish gallon tank
-at least 8 inches of sub (sand, coco fiber, leaf litter mix)
-6 hermies (small-medium to small-large)
-one saltwater pool and one freshwater pool (we are planning on DIY bigger ones very soon.)
-my temp gauges in the pics are not correct. they are now consistently reading 80-84 degrees and 78% humidity.
