Eco Earth and Play sand
My Husband and I made this large crabitat last summer. It took a long time to complete and was basically built with minimal plans. More like an “as you go” type of build. Because of it’s size I have to pump in humidity to keep levels where they need to be. There are 2 shell shops, one built into the wall of the crabitat for large shells, then the medium and small shells are on the ledge above the substrate. There are two 2.5 gallon aquariums for the pools with a vine for getting in and out of them. The pool area is sectioned off from the substrate area by a piece of plexi glass glued in to avoid floods if they should leak. There is a moss pit and 5 hiding caves also built into the wall of the crabitat. There is a climbing rope made out of drift wood that spans from one side to the moss pit in the middle of the wall. This massive crabitat houses approximately 35 crabs. I have 2 Jumbo’s and the rest range in size all the way down to very small. Mostly PP’s, but I do have 4 E’s now (I call them the Ninja Turtles.) they are small little guys.March 1, 2017 at 12:20 pm #6683March 9, 2017 at 4:53 pm #6741
