    Congrats Chermo!

    I know you been itching for a larger tank for some time now. Santa bring you a early Christmas present? Have fun with it and I am sure your babies will enjoy the added space!

    I got it from someone on craigs list in my area but it does have a few cracks on the back but they are fine as they have aquarium sealant on them and it is only for crabs not fish or anything. It was a whole $10.

    Oooooooo...nice set up! I really like the piece of wood you have in there too. I'd like to have that myself. :D I know you are thrilled---it looks great!

    Thanks for the replies, I just love the bigger tank and I think the crabs do too. They seem to be moving much more. I am now in the market for more decorations to add to the tank in some spots, nothing big but just a few more things. I just don't know what I want just yet.

    I wanted to add a few more pictures.

    This is the whole tank, you can see in the picture my use of foam insulation board cut to size and there are 2 holes in it for the lights, then I duck taped around all the open edges so no foam comes out and nothing starts on fire and added a old metal curtain rod so the heat doesn't melt or burn anything. I really love this lid and it works great, I am getting a plexi glass lid again but I am not sure if I will use it. I really like the way this lid keeps in humidity and heat very well.

    I love the decorations. My tank does not have any plastic plants but I think I'll try to get some. I'm still sort of broke in pocket money after my last upgrade. Looks great!:)
