    I'm doing a deep cleanse tomorrow, ill post before and after pictures, I'm just wondering, is there any type of live plants I could put in with the Hermies, also I bought a fog thingy to keep the humidity up, if I made a pool inside of my tank, would the hermies swim in it? lol (I dont know if hermits can swim)

    There are safe plants for crabs, but they won't grow if they're exposed to salt water (if you use that for spraying or moistening your substrate). Check out the Epicurean Hermit site for safe plants and such.

    Foggers...I've heard of a lot of people buying them and then getting rid of them because they don't work well in 'tats - the glass is always fogged, humidity is too high, etc.

    Crabs need to be able to submerge in their water bowls - I've seen bunches of pictures of crabs just hanging out underwater. Make sure that they can climb out, though - they can drown if they're in for too long!

    New setup

    I spray my substrate with fresh water not salt water so I could prob add plants then, also atm I think my tank is too small for a pool lol (I think its only like a 33G), and the fogger doesnt fog up my glass so I guess it should be fine.
