    Just a heads up.....

    The theme for July will be RED WHITE & BLUE.

    You can dress up your tank, or dress up your crabbies, but it has to have the RED WHITE & BLUE color scheme.

    I would however refrain from attaching your hermie to a "roman candle" and lighting it! :D :D :D

    I have been trying for some crab friendly ideas. This is a tricky one indeed.

    Hey, if all else fails, slap a red, white and blue ribblon on the tank! :)

    Put a small flag in the tank for a backdrop, add streamers, cut out pics of fireworks and place them around the crabbies, put red/white/blue stripes on a piece of paper and tape the ends together and put your crabbie inside so it looks like his shell is "Patriotic", ...and if you're really tricky---get one of those flags on a toothpick and have your crabbie hold that while you take his pic. hahahahahahahaha

    ...sorry...I'm having toooo much fun :D :D

    Do the fireworks 'have' to be red white and blue? I have lots of different colored fireworks on the thing I'm making, not just red white and blue. I am typing 'Happy 4th of July' on it. oh yeah also can you use stuff like photoshop? That's what I'm working with right now.

    Ah, yes, great ideas Mckenny! You should enter the contest too! :)

    Yes you can use photo shop. There is this rules thing somewhere... I can't wait to get started but I have no clue how to begin. I'm looking for something sort of less stressful for the crabs because I'm working on handling them a lot less etc.

    This doesn't have to be "rocket science" peeps. You can do sooo much with the colors.
    Some more suggestions: placing your crabby on a red/white/blue ribbon, or even a flag, peeking out of something r/w/b, if your crabby is in a white shell,put him in between something red and blue, etc.

    Photo shop is acceptable as far as I know, but I'll double check with the Mods on that. The fireworks don't have to be r/w/b, but the colors have to be somewhere in the picture with the crabby/crabbies.

    Gee, almost makes me wish I could enter...:)

    Aw thanks OneOnion, but that is "my" self imposed rule to exclude myself from the contests. Besides, I'd have to find someone to tap their foot at ME!! :D

    The Contest will start on July 1st after I put up the announcement. I'm glad to see there is some excitement, but don't forget we still have the June contest going on everyone. If you haven't voted, take a minute and cast a vote. Just 2 more days to do so. :)

    I have to find the rules but photoshop IMO is NOT fair--I dont have photoshop--someone else might not have photoshop - what happened to good old fashioned creativity?

    Ooh I can't wait! :D Today I was trying to get my camera to work for the billionth time but I failed. :( I'm gonna try to get a new one. I don't know how to use photoshop. You could draw in Paint though. But that's probably against the rules, too.
