*curls up into ball because
1) I want to fit in there
2) my tank sucks next to yours (and everyone else's)*

The tension rods are great wrapped. Our crabs, even the babies climb on them. The give so many options for adding things to the tank too!
A TV show would be fun! Similar to Bar Rescue too! Go in an yell at everyone on how terrible their tank conditions are then threaten to walk out and not do their tank! Then reconsider and do the new tank! I highly doubt that would ever happen. It would be huge to promote awareness and general care.

Once we see how things go at Crab Con with selling our stuff we may try to open a store later.
You'll def have to let us all know if you decide to open a store. I would be your first customer for sure. Image

It's really the best once you figure out how to use it. Once everything is attached we never have to adjust the wheels or secure whatever is attached. It does make it more difficult to redecorate if you want.

How did Xenocrab do the leaf pot?
Do you have an etsy store ? Or a way to order online?
I wish I could, but I know that I will not be able to go to Crab Con.

I have also been wondering what kind of glue would be safe to use in my Crabitat.

We have an Etsy store partially set up. The basics are done but nothing listed. After Crab Con we are planning to list what we didn't sell at Crab Con and go from there with more sales.

We did sell a few things through PayPal. Once we are ready to ship we let you know. Then mail it out.

To follow the rules and regulations at the HCA I can't solicit sales. It would be considered spam. You can however PM me and ask.

We use aquarium safe silicone for all our crabby crafts. It should be clearly labeled "aquarium safe" on the packaging. If it is labeled "mold resistant", "mold inhibiting", or similar, it is NOT safe.

That would be amazing! Your comment made me laugh out loud. I would watch that show! You'd be like the Gordon Ramsey of crab tanks! :hlol:
