    I guess you might think they look like spiders because of their legs, but other than that....

    your pictures are always very cool. Just a word of advice, and please, don't take it negatively...ONCE ( I dont think I will ever do it again) , I held two hermies and my palm was not flat, I was taking them out of their tat at the pet shop, and one hermie pinched me HARD in the curve of my hand between the thumb and the pointer finger. He wouldn't let go until he "took" a little piece of my skin with him. Yes, it bleed, and it got swolen too, I even had a scab. It hurt sooo much. That is why I have a hermie named Chomper. :pinch:

    Here's Weird Al, who is in a desperate need of a shell change but is too stubborn to do so.


    P.S.
    Can anyone confirm what type of hermit weird al is? I thought a different colored E at first but could he be a ruggy?

    Pretty sure he's an E but I can't see under his eyes. Ruggies have black splotches/ spots, Es don't. He looks more E to me.

    It's very random the way they act. Some days they all seem ok with me being around and looking at them and others, they run for the hills the moment I get close

    Thanks! :)

    It's going to be changing again soon. It's about time I do a deep clean and I'll probably change to sand this time around Wonder what it will look like :O

    Very Nice!! I like those 3M hooks...they are the only ones I've found that really hold.

    Oh wow!! I am liking your tank designs! All of them!! Got my juices flowing and my credit card finger is itching.hahahaha

    The 3M hooks are a fabulous idea. Really like that and the stacked baskets are also great.

    What an inspiration your pics are.

    Couldn't find any sand but I changed stuff around anyways, because I can!

    The clear plastic tupperwares are all hanging either from the ladders or fishing line holding it up, like a little tree top floating thingy.. lol.

    The left side, almost unchanged, added stuff in the backround.

    middle, put back my trusty skull and potted my plant ;p, food is hidden under, figure they would be less shy to go eat.

    Ooooo...great tank!! It's too cool! :sunny:

    There's only one thing that "for me" would be a concern.
    I too contemplated using fishing line for something with one of my setups. I wondered though if somehow they got tangled or the line got into one of their
    leg joints or GASP got around one of their eyes, would it end up cutting into them?
    So, I decided to go with natural Jute twine/string.
    Just a thought... :think:
