This crabitat is a 60 gallon Hexagon tank (27Lx24Wx28H)
The sub is mainly ecoearth and sand mix, some maple and oak leaf litter.
We have a calcium pit, one saltwater pool and one freshwater with bubblers, several coconut huts, coconut moss pits, and bamboo finch nest moss pits. There is also a maple wood bridge, a purple barnacle, maple wood log, coconut fiber shell shop, fish net, and fake ferns and leaves. Some of our crabs are always out during the day and night, they love climbing and playing in their bubbler pools and sometimes nap together in the moss pits.

Name: Marnel Rodriguez
Year of Birth: 1987
Location: Surrey BC, Canada
Dimensions of Crabitat: MAIN TANK : 48″ x 18″ x 24″
TOPPER : 36″ x 17″ x 18″
Volume of Crabitat: MAIN TANK : 70 Gallon
TOPPER : 40 Gallon
Description of Substrate: Eco Earth and Play Sand Mix
Description of Tank Items: Big Saltwater pool, Cork Tiles on the topper, hemp nets, 2 big moss pits and 3 smaller ones, 4 coco hut hideys, branches covered with nets for climbing, Big hammock on the topper with moss, Live tropical plants, smaller saltwater pool for drinking, freshwater pool for drinking, 2 shell shops ( 1 for small and medium shells and 1 for large and jumbo shells), 4 food dishes ( 2 on the topper and 2 on the main tank below), 48″ heat pad, 1 heat bulb, 36″ fluorescent lamp. I also have Arm and Hammer Odor Eliminator which is out of reach of the crabs.
Comments: I seldom touch my hermits, I just let them in the tank, I just like watching them. I seldom spray or mist the tank. What I do is just water the plants twice or once a weak and the heat pad does the work to maintain humidity in the tank. I just rescued 5 straws from a pet shop with horrible setup, but prior to their rescue, I’ve been planning to get straws that’s why I made sure my tank is very stable and optimized for straws. My substrate is 10″ high. I also have plastic mesh wire attached to the walls of the main tank.
