    It took me a while to set it up b/c I found it free on Craigslist but it needed both ends replaced as they were shattered and then I had to make my own lids for it but in the end it came out pretty decent. I still have somethings in my old tank I would like to move over but I still have molters down and if I remove them it would collapse their tunnels and since one of them is my large Straw I figure I will wait and add them later. So far plenty of exploring and shell changing but other than that everyone has behaved themselves very nicely. I was able to move 28 of my crew over and I know I lost 2 since my last deep clean and I know where 2 of my molters in my old tank are, so right now I have 2 unaccounted for one of them being my small Straw whom I fear has passed but I am ever hopeful that he will pop up unexpectedly. Anyway I have began to ramble, on with the show....

    Darn. I can't see the picture. :( I'll try again. I really don't like links. They never work for my computer.:( I just got a new tank too!!!! I think might be even bigger than 100 gallons but it will take me a month or so to get it all fixed up. You crabs are probably really happy in that jumbo!:) I want to get mine started as soon as possible so my crabs can live in a huge tnak. Also, do you know how to fix up cracks on a tank? We broke while we were taking it out of the truck so we want to fix up a small crack. I heard there was this stuff for aquariums when I was searching for tanks say "Oh it has a little tank but yu can fix it up for a couple bucks".
    THanks

    That looks AMAZING! :D The decorations are so beautiful! Your hermies must be having a blast! I'm looking to upgrade to a 40 gallon. I found one for $40 but it's an hour drive. My parents are thinking about it. I wanted a 55 gallon but it's too big for my desk! :( Wow it feels wierd to talk about 40 and 55gallon tanks like they're big when you people have 75 and 100+ gallon tanks!:eek:

    Yes, if you boil them. I have some rocks from outside I've boiled in the tank.
