    Went from sand to ee and moss
    from 7 extra shells to 38 extra shells (Babylons got at Target for $4.99 US dollar)
    From no hidey to BIG Stone hidey
    got 2 large black sea fans

    and 1 set of shell shocked little crabs!!!LOL
    went they all saw the shell pile they all sat there looking at it for 20 mins...
    Any way here are some pics ( note: the salt water dish is under the stone hidey)

    I agree with Kaelink.
    I like your 'tat'!
    I wish mine could look something like that.

    I think, in a couple of months, when I do my next deep clean, I may do something similar with empty shells. :p

    Very well done with such a small space. I agree that it doesn't even look like a ten gallon. My forty gallon doesn't even look that good. I really like it.

    With a little creative thinking, you can have a great 10 gallon...your looks awesome. I have some sea fan in my 10 gallon...it's a slightly different variety that has a tighter weave...anyway...watch out for mildew as it gets moist. One of mine got mildew pretty bad, but that was after several months (yes, I removed it:rolleyes:). The crabbies love to climb on it!

    Wow, your crabs sure do like Babylons! One Question--- How do you clean your cage? (I mean with all of the stuff in it) Is it as simple as taking out everything and doing a deep clean? (and how often!)
