    wow my crabitat is soo boring compared to that. i'd make stuff to put in it but i only hav a 10gal tank right now and 9 small hermit crabs squished in it... once i find a bigger tank that isnt wicked expensive, i will make it a lot better then the one i hav now.

    This is made of 2 plastic storage bins (upside down). I cut out openings in the front so the crabs can go inside and hide out in a dark, roomy, private space when ever they want.
    Then I used aquarium sealant to attach a piece of plexiglass to the top and lined a row of corks along the edges to make a shelf to hold some gravel and the extra shells.

    This is a hide away and a second level all in one.

    Thanks Rodent! I think that the rock idea is great too [​IMG]

    I never even thought to glue rocks together to make a climbing/hidey place. Good job!
    (I might have to try that at some point) [​IMG]
