    These are a few pictures of my newly changed crabitat. I'd like lots of suggestions of what I can do to improve. I'd like to make a second level, any ideas? :)

    Id add more greenery, up at the top and on the ground. But I like my tanks that way

    I got a long piece of choya wood that i got from vicki and i wrapped a vine around it, my hermies love it. I always find them hiding under the leaves of the vine. Something like that would look great at the back of your tank.

    I wanted Choya wood, but can't find any around here and I can't do online purchases. :(

    I accept money orders, cash and personal checks. You can order through the store and pay by any of those. :eek:

    Try adding more hidey places with rocks or plants. I find if mine have places to hide they seem to spend more time out (sort of a security net I guess). I also used more organic elements like dried plant leaves such as palm fronds and cholla wood and made 2 moss pits with shower shelves. You can even use bits of broken unpainted basket as long as the original wood is safe for crabs. Anything they can climb is a treat!! One of the cheapest and favourite elements in my tank are 3 skinny bamboo poles stretched across the back wall. Total cost less than $5.00 at Home Depot (they sell them for plant supports in a pack of 6 x 6 ft lengths).

    I put an oasis in mine... I got a plastic container and buried it in the substrate up to the top, and I put aquarium rocks (boiled first) and seashells in it, along with a few sponges. Then, I filled it almost to the top with dechloranated water. My hermies love it!
