Her name is Mary Akers. I found her on Instagram and saw her dishes. She said she's on Etsy, so I found her on there and ordered my dishes.

I want them all! They are great quality too. She has bred captive hermit crabs as well. I'm super impressed by her.

I would like to know why your crabitat isn't decorated with Halloween decor..when I opened this thread I thought that is what I was going to be seeing! LOL!!! Of course your crabitat looks great, I was just expecting Halloween themed stuff! ;)

Love it! Love the snake skin in the caldron! It kind of looks like a cobweb! :)

I couldn't go all out because I have a smaller tank and when I mess around in there too much it stresses my crabbies out. I only have 2 out of 7 up now, so I'm taking a hands off approach in the tank. They get fresh foods and waters, but I'll wait til they all come up to do more tank changes. I'm about health for them. Looks are nice, but they don't care about looks. As long as they are happy, it's all good. And my isopods are questionable at this point, so I don't want to interfere with whatever they have going on.
