    I just cracked one yesterday ... took a chisel and hammer right down the middle. The one half was useless ... well, except for the coconut, but the other half stayed intact. Plan to make a hut of that one myself ...

    We saw our coconuts also, but I cut the "eye" side off about an inch up so they have more of a cave that can lay sideways -just remember to drain that milk first. Dad always called fresh coconuts "monkey heads" and as kids we argued over who got to drive a nail through the "monkey eyes"... hee hee hee... kinda sounds morbid looking back. My bro-in-law didn't think to do this once and boy was he in trouble when my sister saw the mess. Our crabs also LOVE these balls! One is a straw one we got at either Petco or Petsmart (Big Fella has claimed that one as his turf) and the vine ball we got at Hobby Lobby. The small crabs expecially love the vine ball.Oh and all I can say about your first pic is "just add milk and stir" *LOL*

    I agree some more green stuff i would add some vines and plants. Some more climby stuff like choya wood. A net would be great in there as they love to climb. It looks like your sand might need to be a little deeper. You could even add a moss pit, hermies love moss. You strawberries look quite big you might want to think about adding some deeper water dishes.

    There are so many things you can do with such a large tank. You're best bet is to look at other crabitat pictures that are online to give you some ideas.
