In the past month I have upgraded the crabitat from a 30gal bow front…added the 2 1gal pools…added all the homemade jute hammock w/ladder, bridge, and climbing net…added the gal glass pickle jar shell shop from the shells just laying on the substrate…added the sea shell food dishes…added some like new plastic plants…overall I reorganized and reestablished the crabitat to make it much more PP friendly than my previous tank…I’m heating the tank with a heat lamp offset and made a cover for the tank until I can purchase a lid to keep in humidity…my most recent add was about 30 Rollie Pollies that I harvested in my backyard…April 28, 2016 at 8:56 pm #5119Maxwell IsenbergParticipant
