Description of Tank Items left side of tank has a 3d wall I made from great stuff pond foam, cork bark, ghostwood and covered with eco earth. The crabs love hanging on it and they all seem to sleep together there too.
Comments: I just got this up and running June 25th. It is an upgrade from a 20 gallon tall. I have an airstone in the saltwater tub on timer turning on 4 times a day for 1/2 hour each time. The tank is used and I found it on craiglist. The stand is brand new from petco and looks so awesome in the living room.
I have 5 PP’s in this tank and they have been more active then ever with the room to roam. They all like to hang out on the wall with the little caves I made with the cork bark. I also have a large piece of mopani wood in the tank with fish netting over it. Also there is a maple wood bridge for them to climb. Also a 2 piece cocnut moss pit and a gourd with coconut fiber it.
We are really enjoying the new tank. Here are some pictures.August 1, 2016 at 2:13 am #5910Amber MinerParticipant
