This is somewhat up to date but there's 3 more vines and another mopani wood log now. I really should take new pictures!

Yes they are! I got both at a thrift store and I love them! The shell shop is a big corner one I actually bought it back when I had a 10 gal and it took up half the tank hahah

Still a work in progress -- we added in two large nautilus shells that they like to hide in and climb on. I stupidly started with a 20g H because I figured that would be enough for 3 small crabs but one of the two we took in is larger than I thought so I'm already looking at the 50-55g tanks and where we can put one in our apartment before the Petco sale ends. :/ (My humidity and temp are 80+ usually - this was from when I had the tank open and was adding wet Eco Earth to up my humidity against the heater wall so the temp went down and humidity went up. It's usually 80-81 degrees and 85-87% humidity.)

Shell shops - they rarely get in the higher one so I'm going to zip tie a plant to it so they can climb that -they do not climb that mesh:

Thanks! I put one of my crabs inside to see if he'd react to the water, but he only wanted to get out.
