Much more appealing to the eye than a tank with a piece of netting stuck to the back! I'm sure your crabs are loving it!
Yeah. It is - thankfully. Was thinking it would - did the last time I did similar - but this was a first. Only in two places has the concrete come off. Which was both my fault. One in the marine pool area, which I broke off by dropping some rock on there with my waterchange, and another just due to a 'thin' patch of concrete that flaked off.
But I do agree, I like the naturalist vibe it has. Hope one day to upgrade to something larger and do this all over again! I've learnt the crabs loves the hides climb tunnel, so I'd definitely would of made more throughout the background and they also enjoy the top ledge, hiding in the plants and my EE pit (so would like to have numerous pits they could dig in, and for plants to root around in)

Some of the plants look great, a few others not so much. But I have an endless supply of a few terrarium plants, so I have no problem breaking off a stem, planting it and seeing whether it grows or I just simply replace it with another cutting.
And yeah, besides that, have replaced by adding some tillandsia that I purchased recently and also plan on adding a ficus benjamina 'variegata' that I have sitting on my desk. Oh and a couple of prayer plants that I have also sitting outside. But I do plan on doing another bromeliad haul as well as getting some more 'terrarium' plants from my hardware store. Particularly vining plants.
Yeah, the marine setup is pretty bland. Most of my algae has gone, so I need to get some more and fill it up again. And I think my hermit crab has eaten all my bristleworms, as I havent seen any in ages... so I may ask some local stores if they have any hitchhikers (or snails really, diatoms are getting ridiculous) to spare.
