    :) Hello Everyone in Crabbydom :)


    This is the start of our October Photo Contest


    For this month only we will be having two contests and two prizes, which will hopefully make up for not having a contest in September.

    One of the contests will be a:
    56 Gallon or larger CRAB PALACE

    Crabitats 56 gallons OR MORE are this month's featured contest.
    Your Crab Palace could be an aquarium, a tub, or whatever it is you use for a "crabby home".

    The other contest will be:

    SMILE...You're on Crabdid Camera!

    This is a contest that everyone can enter because there are NO props or Special effects allowed for this contest. Just a pic of your crab looking into the camera. If you can get your crabbie to smile, that'll be even better! (by the way, the "Tank" people can enter this contest as well)


    This is not a professional photo contest, so please, everyone send in your pictures---all are welcome.


    RULES

    Hello! Here is my picture of Lets-see the Hermit Crab, as named by my 4 year old son! I am still quite new here but cannot wait to get on here every night! I hope I posted this correctly! BTW, the picture was taken today, not in 2004. I did not realize my camera date needed to be reset. Thank-you! Christy[​IMG]

    Ok. SO this is my picture of lucky and hopefully it went through somehow....
    I tried a link but it's not really working.... But
    Here is a picture of Lucky. She's never shy and is one of my favorites. She somehow managed to suspend herself over this leaf. She toppled down right after I took the picture.
    One last attemp for a lager pic...

    "Hi! Look what I'm doing!"
    After a rearrangement of the crabitat last night, there are gaps that are too small for some of the larger crabs to navigate through. This crab wanted a way to get up out of the moss pit without going around behind this piece of slate. So if you can't fit through, you go under! This is Skoop waving at the camera.

    Here's my 90 gallon, a bit tiny compared to the others that entered :D
    Each side has a custom-built 5 gallon pool, heated and filtered. The salt water pool is sporting a homemade waterfall where at least 2 crabs are hiding. There is a deep moss pit in the middle, a shower caddy balcony in the back, and a some rocks over the fresh water for adventurous climbers.

    Nibs has decided that the celebrity life is not for her, and she's going to hide until they get the cameras out of her face.
