    Hello everyone,

    I just got a new 10 gallon crabitat, and I want to add a second level. I was thinking of making a frame out of PVC, and covering it with coconut mat. I would also use a square of coconut mat as the floor.

    Are there any crab friendly ways to stick things to other things? I didn't want to go squirting all kinds of adhesives everywhere without checking for potential problems.

    Thanks!

    I just got a new 20 gallon tank for Christmas (my hubbie must really love me) and we made shelves in it with plexiglass and glued them in with aquaurium silicone. The plexi was a little tough to cut with the jigsaw. Now I am on the drying stage. I am going to cut coconut fiber and velcro it onto the shelves. Then I will have to figure out what to use for them to climb up there.
