Hanging coconut hut, hanging sea glass hut (not pictured in main photos), ground level coconut hut. Lots of lush, artificial foliage to include several orchid accents.

Comments: This project has been a labor of love. I ran into more obstacles during it’s construction than I anticipated but it was totally worth it. There are two custom PVC pipe stands with porcelain table tops holding the 5 gallon pools up.I wanted this tank to be an oasis for my crabs but it was also important to be that it is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. Believe it or not, it is still a work in progress. I plan to add a 60″ piece of cholla wood hanging horizontally across the inside of the tank. Also in the works is a large/extra tall exo terra topper. I am looking forward to creating more climbing space for my dear little friends.
