    thank you so much.  i was embarrassed by my first tank (2 weeks ago, it was so small) 

    you can scroll up to the first entry of this thread to see it's sad little self.

    then...i got the 20L 2 days ago...and filled it with calci sand.

    then i got new substrate BUT THE WRONG KIND...so i have to replace it next time i go to town....

    its  a work in progress....

    i have to figure out a way to make the pond...i saw a turtle pond thing at Petsmart today, but the box had been opened and it was the only one...so i didnt get it.  it had a filtration system with it.  i might go that route...

    i did put in a big shell order today and ordered a piece of cholla (sp?) wood, and i plan on making a corner basket for all the new shells.  cause i am like you...i dont like them to get all sandy and dirty.

    i'm having a lot of fun doing the crab thing. 

    OH, and about the shell order.  My crab Chewy has changed shells 4 times since i got him...and the newest crab, Mister, has already changed shells, then went back to his old one.  He had a really big abdomen.

    OH well...i really love talking to you guys...

    thanks for your reply...

    Dividers can be just plexiglass cut down- that is what I use--you can also use Big rocks for a quick fix.......keep in mind that pools and ponds that are permanant will need a filter system as you know and that can be a pain- I love the new tank too  :hula:

    omg...thank you so much.  i plan on getting a filtration system for it.  i keep fish...so i understand the importance of keeping the water nice.  i'm gonna do the salt water in the big pool for swimming...and use the shell/sponge water dish for fresh...do you think that will work?  i will be sure to use climby things for them to get out of the pool with!

    they're so cute...Mister's shell is really pretty in the pictures where he's on the paper towel or whatever it is. Chewy looks like she's running from the paparazzi in those last two pictures  :biglaugh:

    thanks.  they are so much fun.  oh, and after the photo shoot...i figured out how to set my camera for close ups!  go me!  so i found Charlotte and got some of her...i will upload them tomorrow night!

    OH...and if you are wondering about Mister being in two different shells, the old shell pics were taken last night, and the pretty shell pics were taken tonight!  He must have been spending time with Chewy, who has changed 5 or 6 times in 2 weeks...

    Charlote and Mister were the only crabs to surface so far tonight...so they got to have a 'peanut butter spoon'
