    :)I think it is done...but I am beginning to think that it is not possible...lol
    So here are the pics.
    1.right side
    2. left side
    3. front
    4. left up close
    5 right up close
    6 top w/net
    7 top under net (with out)

    on left side is a second level that Vicky helped me with (thank you!) it has eco earth in it and extra shells
    on the right is a second level that is a shower caddy that I put a vine through the holes so it does not show, it has mos in it and extra shells and flower loves it up there...she is burried under.

    no commercial foods...just foods from Vickie, crabage patch, fresh veggies and fruits and some I made.
    Fresh water is the bigger reptile dish, salt is the sponge reptile dish.
    UTH is on the back not under (thanks for the advice)
    Tank seems to be stable at 80% humidity and 70 temp...it has been cold and I can not seem to get the temp higher. But, it is at a constant temp and humidity.

    That's about it.
    Oh and 8 PP hermit crabs :)
    Oh I guess I have to post top next

    Thanks
    They are from a local shop by the beach. I could live in that shell shop. :) They have so many pretty shells. I went there last year and bought some shells for the daycare for my ocean unit. I had no idea I would be back for shells for crabs. The people that work there know about hermit crabs and were telling me stories about other people that have brought their jumbos in to visit.

    Very nice! I never thought when I bought my tank to get a "tall" tank. I think when I purchase a new tank again I'm going to get a tall one, I like making levels and the crabs love it!

    I've also found my local shell shop to be a great resource. Mine sells hermit crabs too, but painted shell hermies:eek:....they also sell the plastic critter keepers for them. I just try to ignore that and shop for what I need...I do have to stop and admire the hermies though....and grieve for them. Their open air tank is all gravel substrate with a few hidies and a climbing net.

    That looks fantastic!!!! You're welcome about the caddy, glad you like it. It seems to fit perfectly in there and it blends.

    Your crabs are so cute! Inthe very first pic, are those tiny crabs to the right of the tank?
