    it took me longer than expected to set this tank up. i had everything ready then i went on vaca and the wood got moldy so i had to completly redo my tank. (luckly the crabs haven't moved in yet). but i finally finished the tank last night. here are pics:

    this is the overview of the tank. it is a 20L with a 10 Gallon on top to add space!

    moss pit in the front. on the left you can see two big pieces of wood, behind is a cave so the crabs have big place to hide

    Right Side of 10 gallon,complete with a piece of driftwood leaned up agains the glass so there is a hidy spot until the wood and fake plant. also a clay pot in the corner with moss, also the two big piecies of wood act as a bridge for the crabs to go from end to end

    :cheer: Looks great! Very inventive--why is the towel taped on it though? How long did it take you and did you cut out the whole bottom of the 10G or just a portion?

    with my other two tanks, i noticed that since my UTH's are not on the bottom, the heat excapes. so i put the pieces of towels of the UTH's to keep the heat from not going into the tank.

    it took me friday night and most of sat. night. i had to wait for the wood to arrive from vicki's store. and i wanted to cut a whole in the bottom. but that didn't work.

    so i just busted out the bottom. and then cut 2 pieces of plexi-glass and a piece of cardboard and used sealant to secure the pieces into place so the crabs wouldn't have a huge place to escape and then i put some coconut fiber background on. i could use that as another level.
    i wanted to fit the 10 gallon so it was parallel to the 20L but it was to small so i made it fit on horizontal instead. i also have some wood underneath the 10gallon so that if it wasn't stable it would still stay in place. but the way it is now, it's very stable.

    i had fun making the tank.
