    Heya all.
    I'm a relatively new crab owner but I think I have been doing ok so far! I have a 20g tank, with eco earth and moss substrate. It's deep enough so that they can burry themselves. I also use a 15 watt bulb on a 12-12 cycle. Like I said, I have 7 really cool hermies, I think they are all purple pinchers but Im not 100% sure. If you guys see anything I could change or have any questions regarding my tank, I'd love to talk more about it. I sure as heck got addicted pretty easily :)
    I'm gonna have an 25g octagon shaped tank soon! cant wait.

    PS how many small-medium crabs do you think I could fit with my setup? :) (and in my new 25g one as well) and also I received one hermy and he had a painted shell. is there any way to get him to change faster without hurting him? :/ I rly dont like him using the painted one.

    Thank you in advance! :twirl:

    Looking very nice. The substrate should be deep enough to cover the crabs about 2 or 3 times.Let me see.. you got cuttlebone, things to climb, fresh and salt water dishes, a little greenery, love those bendable vines, hygrometer,the strip for the temp. is ok for now. It looks like the only thing you need is a good HEMP NET!!! vckums is the one you should ask
