New Climbing Gym!

Post by doth » Sat Aug 29, 2020 9:17 pm

made a new climbing gym for the crabs! it's a lot more complex than the last one I made (the brown one in the last photo) but there's not as much space for them to hang out underneath it, so for now I'm keeping both in the crabitat.

I put it in last night & there's a little substrate on it this morning, so I'm taking that to mean they like it! ImageImageImageImage

thank you!! the store is HearthStitches on Etsy

basically I roll out a slab of clay, cut it into strips, and then attach them together once they've dried out a little. the hard part is keeping them from cracking!

yep, ceramics are safe for crabitats as long as the glazes are safe (I don't use any that aren't) Image
