    I might be buying a 4' x 4' aquarium for my hermits for 100 dollars lol
    How many gallons is that?
    Also does anyone know how much the lid + lights would cost for something that big?
    I would also need to buy alot of sand, what is the sand that is safe for hermit crabs?
    LMAO

    edit~ probably not going to buy, but still curious lol

    I have a very nice playsand that I just found. It comes in a turquoise bag and is just great. It's all smooth and perfect. It can be found in the outdoors section of Home Depot. Is the tank four feet high and four feet long or four feet deep and four feet long? If it is four feet deep; go for it. That is a Fabulous deal! A plexiglas lid would probably cost about $50.

    4' x 4' x 4' * = 479 US Gallons, 399 IMP Gallons, 1812 Litres.
