    They seem to hoard into this coconut, even though there is about 3-4 more hiding huts. sometimes like 6 in there.

    Pretty cool. This'll help me when I get a taller tank, to see how to make higher levels. But, how do you change the water of the waterfall?

    the pump is also a filter as well. I have to fill it up everyday as well, so it doesn`t go below the pump. So with all that it`s pretty much fresh water all the time. If it ever got really dirty, with earth and such, I can take the whole waterfall out pretty easily. I put leaves around the pond to try and avoid earth going into the tank.
    Glad I can be an inspiration :p

    I had a slight problem with the baskets because the end part was kind of drooping, but then I bought the thick vine and used it as a leg for the basket.
    They are really active at night, it`s a lot of fun to see them roam around.

    Yeah, I moved mine out of my room because I couldn't sleep as they clanked and climbed around.

    BASKETS!  That's brilliant!  I too was inspired, and started shopping for baskets last night.  Is natural, untreated, peeled willow safe for hermies?  Are those baskets the kind they make for bunnies to chew on?

    My baskets are untreated bamboo baskets =) I got the idea from jellybean :p
    I hated the fact that my shells were full of dirt and they would get burried. Now they have access to allll the shells they could ever want hehe. (I received a batch of 30 I ordered off the crab patch). I think I have 60ish shells now :)

    My crabs are such lousy climbers. They always fall of stuff, especially the big ones. I don't think they'd ever make it to the top, lol! Yeah, I am tired of having dirty shells!

    have they molted recently? If they suck at climbing, it could be because they haven't molted recently and their little nails are worn out.

    I LOVE it! what a nice tank! i want it  :drooltongue:

    As for the climbing, mine used to suck too. But i think them practicing actually helped more then molting. I think it also depends on the crab. My hurly is skiddish, so when he comes out he takes off without watching where he's going. Todd is more calm, and had already mastered climbing upsidedown when i got him (the other are still working on that....)

    My shells ALWAYS have dirt in them, but I think Shelle likes 'em that way. She keeps doing it!

    He stole the title of tiniest crab from twizzler, this is mini egg. Those are peanuts and raisins in the dish, you can compare them to him and see how tiny he is, lol.

    This guy I'm pretty sure is an E although I've never seen Es with that coloring.
