    I also had trouble with mold on wood that was in my e.e. or sand I did a simular thing, you can add big rocks around the wood to stabilize the wood and add more climbing for the crabs to, just boil the rocks in their salt water. I went and found rocks at my dr office { shhh...} but ones from walmart ones will work! it also coverd the plastic I used to put my wood in.
