Great pics! And your tank looks amazing too, I'm sure they loving it in there! :) Look forward in seeing how your tank evolves over time.

What adorable crabbies! Those eyes get me every time! I love pp's but they don't get the cute eyes that other land-crabbies get. haha

Long time no see! Not the best pic, but my husband rearranged a bit, and i liked it! The ruggies love to climb up on the "tree" in the corner. They push each other down and change places and sit side by side, so cute! They love watermelon, thats a real treat!ImageImageImage

The plants are alive, the fern is both a house and a snack, so thats the one there taking it all out on. They nibble on the others, but they don't look to shabby! Some of them even thrives!

What are all the plants if you remember what they're called? I want to add some live plants into my 'tat but can't decide what I want to try out.

Hm there's an elephant foot, the fern is a non- toxic fern bought in a garden/plant store. They all are :) I have to google the rest, found them all on a list for crab safe/terrarium plants

That's awesome. I love being able to put more natural things in my tank, I'm not a fan of plastic and metal and what have you, but that's just me. So, I am all about those plants you have in there. Everything about your tank looks great and the crabs really seem to enjoy everything. You've done such a great job!

Wow your tank has evolved beautifully! I can't believe how nice those live plants look in comparison to fake ones! Great job! And beautiful crabbies!!
Just curious - what kind of crabs do they offer in Norway? Do petshops have them or do you have to import them yourselves?

I love your tank! And very cute ruggies. :) My crabs would destroy those live plants in about 2 seconds.
