    Awesome setup, one thing I noticed, however. I'd make the sand a little deeper and maybe a little more damp, good depth is 3x the height of your largest hermit crab. Hermit crabs dig for fun and when they molt in the wild, so they'll need it or they'll eventually(it'll take a while, but eventually) die.

    What kind of sand are you using? If it's Calci-sand or Hermit Crab Sand, it won't support molting and can kill your crabs if they're digging in it. Either use all coconut fiber, playsand (not the best, but it does work), or aquarium sand (available at pet store). Nothing else is safe for crabs.

    That is an AWESOME setup though. :)

    I love the set up. If you do get playsand make sure it is very fine. You don't want the type that has rocks in it that can hurt the crabs.
