    Today, I helped my friend Dianna set up her 90-gallon tank. SOOOO EXCITING for her AND me! We started at 12:30pm and didn't finish cleaning out her 55-gallon until 8:30pm. We are both EXHASTED after lugging 150 lbs. of sand, and 2 large bags of Jungle Bed, PLUS 3 expanded bricks of EE. (And that doesn't count the repti-moss for her FOUR second levels.)

    The tank looks AWESOME! She did a fantastic job! She has PROMISED to finally make a post & show you all the "fruits of our efforts". But, she did send a little someone home with me. You see, she had this tiny little micro E, about the size as my Ziggy, that she has been worried about. She has several very large crabs, and he is so tiny....and now being moved to such an enormous tank, she was just afraid that he would either be trampled or get lost.

    So she asked me to bring "Snookums" home to my itty bitty baby tank (the 20L). Of course I obliged, and I also moved Ziggy over to the 20L, so that he would have a species buddy. Actually, Ziggy even looked small in the 40-breeder, so this is probably better for him, too.

    So I snapped a few quick pics of Snookums before he went into his new, cozy home. He just came up from his first molt with Dianna, so he is fuzzy with little sharp toes. In fact, Snookums & Ziggy were molting at the same time, so maybe they are soulmates!

    He has already changed shells FIVE time! Weird for an E, huh? Here are some picks of yesterday and today....
