    Pam Liberatore
    Glenshaw, PA
    40 gallon breeder
    Quickcrete play sand approx. 200 pounds and approx. 8 inches deep and sloping to approx. 4 inches to the 3-D wall.

    I set this tank up in July with a 3d side background. I left a 20 gallon high for this and my 5 crabs love it. I have cork bark halves for hiding places and choa wood hanging from the back wall with some fishing netting hanging over it.Coconut halves hammock for some birch wood shavings, a couple of moss pits, one of a terra cotta pot, and a small soap caddy with moss attached to the back wall. I have been using some great spaghum moss in these items. I have also put a small terra cotta pot in with some coconut fiber for the crabs to play with or eat. I have various plastic plants hanging and fishing net too. I have two pools of water, one salt and one regular. I have an air stone in the salt water tub ad the crabs seem to love the bubbles. I have it set on a timer to come on 4 times a day for 1/2 hour at a time.
    On the side 3-D wall there is cork bark and some ghost wood attached to the wall. The crabs love to climb the wall and hide in the crevices. I have been using a a red reptile rock dish for my crabs since the begining it seems and have had no problems with it. So here are some photos to enter:
