    It's a beautiful crabitat. I would not overload it with crabs, though. Sometimes they all want to dig down at the same time and it doesn't look like there's a lot of substrate area. I love all the things you've added for climbing. It shows a lot of imagination. When is the crab's big day?

    I have 3 crabs living in there, it is 35 gallons, at least that is what I was told. My substrate is 2" in the front, because the water dishes are there, so it dosen't get too messy if they spill, its about 4" in the middle, and 5" in the back. Do you think that it is deep enough? I do have one down right now (destressing I think) and I can't tell where he is, so it is deep enough for them to hide, but I don't know about if all 3 of them were down, they might run into each other.

    Also do you think that I have too much on the bottom? Here is a pic with the platform taken out. I could take out a some of the drift wood or choya, so they would have more floor space.

    The depth of the substrate depends on the size of your crabs. 5 inches in the back should be deep enough if he is a small or medium. It should be at least twice the depth of your biggest one...that way he has plenty of room to bury.

    Thanks for the advice everyone:) ! I did take a piece of drift wood and the choya out, I am going to switch once and a while to give them a change of scenery! And as soon as playsand is available in my area I will be stocking up on a few bags (so I always have extra) and I will make it deeper. Thanks again, happy crabbing!!
