Plastic plants,2 wood ladders and 2 climbing logs, 1 hollow, 1 hanging coconut, 2-1 gallon pools with rocks and shells at the bottom & bubblers, 3 mushroom ledges, live chia, lizard hammock with dry moss, 4 shell shops, 2 leaf litter pits.
I brought my crabs home on labor day (Sept 5th) and about a week later I brought home this 80 gal tank and have been working on it ever since. I “finished” 11/5 and put 2 of my crabs (the 2 that came up from a molt) in it. It is the centerpeice on a wall in my living room.November 6, 2016 at 11:32 am #6354
My newer tank. I used my old 30 gallon to create a tank just for the tiny babies. The walls are all handmade 3D plant panels I created,
tree fern and cork bark. There are three additional platforms/levels I have created out of tree fern and cork flats. They have a salt water waterfall in the back corner surrounded by lush greenery and orchids, and an appropriately sizes fresh water pool in the front area.
There are several custom hiding huts I have designed for them, as well as a hammock, and cork rounds. Plenty of leaf litter, natural sticks and mosses as well.
They really seem to be enjoying it so far, and it looks great front and center in the living room!November 22, 2016 at 8:56 pm #6428
