    Lol Scoob, my PPs get out of the way but my blue and straw were running all where I was trying to scoop so I'd pick them up and move them out of the way just for them to come back. It was really cute though, when I finished, I kneeled to look at the tank and my PP Hermes (I've had him for 1yr 4mo) came running up to the front of the tank to greet me. After I picked him up to say hello he went exploring. His antennae tickle  :chuckle:

    It looks great! Currently trying to figure out how I'm going to remodel my tank since I have crabs down and I don't want to disturb them..... :think:

    I don't worry too much about my molters, I know the areas they go down so I avoid those areas and my cocofiber is moldable enough that it doesn't collapse caves when I work on the surface. If you're careful with your surface work, you can start moving stuff around

    :kpics:  It looks really good! I'd stand the choya up as high as you could in the tank. They love to climb.

    I have it up high enough that they can't get onto their roof, I'm a poor college student to I have  one of those wired tops and to keep moisture in, I have masking tape striped over the top lol with all the new decor, they've all been climbing like crazy!

    Good job!  I am inspired to get myself in gear and go decorate the tank I've had sitting here for 2 years!

    Thanks :D You should! It's a lot of fun, especially if you're an artistic person like myself. I wish I could decorate it again but I dont have the means to at this time lol.
    I plan to get a 300g tank in the future so I can have more room to decorate and my crabs can have more room to run, climb and play.

    @Katz don't be so sure that you  think you know where your crabs are down molting at  :think: they go digging and tunnling all over down there before they get settled and do their business unless you have very clear window of the crab. I thought crabby paddy was at one end of the tank to and I lfted a decoration and boom there he was, at the other end, sneaky! well now i have been all over the web sites from face books, to crab sites, to photobuckets, hotmails, it's 3a.m, I took a pain pill and I am bushed wacked! I drew and painted a 5ft double cheese burger and now I need to add the fries and pop to complete it for our reading is so delicious summer reading theme at the library my back is killing me! will post pics when it's done

    lol scoobdoo, my crabs all molt in the same 2 places, it's really weird. One is right in front of their flower pot and the other spot is right next to the food dish. I've stumbled upon them a few times on accident because I didn't know any were down.

    You sound busy busy as usual XD  I wish I could do a large burger and fries, the last large food I made was a giant icecream cone of ben and jerry's for a project 3 1/2 years ago. I'd like to see your burger and fries! Your library seems more...active? than the ones we have here

    I have it easy! My husband built a tank table that is a frame table. No bottom to the table so all I have to do is look underneath it to see where they are molting. Just yesturday I realized that my ee was a little dry so I pored 1/2 gal. in the tank avoiding the place where I have a molter. Most tunnels are pretty solid so you can rearange a bit with out disturbing them.
