    Well. I can only choose one option but I have them all except the plastic castle. But if you are talking about one of those guinea pig castles then I have one for my tortoises.:D

    I've got a cocohut (well, I have 3, but only one's in the tank right now), a rock-looking shelter cave thing, and a cholla log (they're hollow, and several of mine love them to death).

    I have a rock house for mine. They used to love it, but now seem content with burying themselves right next to it, lol.

    Crud, I voted wrong. I clicked hermie hut instead of coco hut. But I also have terra cotta pot caves, aquarium type caves, and logs. The favorite hang out is always the suction cup moss pits though.

    I just got half a log to replace the fake-looking log I had before.
    I like it better because it looks more natural.

    Half logs are no good, hey are made of pine or cedar both of which are deadly to your crabs.

    I have all of these except for the plastic castle! Lol I have two coconut huts, and one has "Hermie Hut" painted on it, a half-a-log, and a rock hut.

    But, not all half-logs are made out of those things, right?
    How would you know? :confused:

    I'm pretty sure all of them are made out of those. The best way to know would be to email the maker of the brand of half log you have and ask them what it's made of. Personally, I've never seen one that looked "different" than any of the other brands. Look up pictures of the Zoo Med Habba Hut and if yours looks like it (the bark looks the same), it's 99% sure to be the same kind of wood.

    *groan* AWWW, MAN!
    I just got that log! :mad:

    Anyway, Where do you guys get your coco's? All the ones I see at the stores always have good room inside, but the entrance is sooooo small, not even a micro crab could fit! I hate it! I need to find cocohuts that have nice, wide openings for all crab sizes. Shelle's a medium.

    I wish I knew about the logs before I bought them! :confused::mad::eek:

    Cool, you need to have one shelter per crab and if I'm correct you have 13 so if I were you I'd go out today and buy 11 more. I'm not trying to be mean but I think your crabs would like having their own hut each.:)
