I have only recently gotten into crabs after my grandson won one at a local carnival. While learning how to help him I fell in love with these little cuties! I am currently housing mine and his too, (due to the untimely death of my son’s air conditioner). Their home was too hot to be safe for them. I added the extension because I wanted to be able to give them more items to climb and additional places to explore. The tank was only completed 3 days before needing to add the crabs-due to the air conditioner issue.
