Name: Jen Williams
Year of Birth: 1976
Location: Mississippi, USA
Dimensions of Crabitat:
Volume of Crabitat: 60 gal
Description of Substrate: play sand, coconut coir & worm casings
Description of Tank Items: burlap for climbing, ladders, coconut hides, other hides, silk vines, 2 shell shops, salt and fresh water pools with bubblers.
Comments: I recently moved the crabmeat from the bedroom to the living room. When I did I added the burlap for climbing and to hide the heaters. I also added a second shell shop to give them one on the ground and one to climb to and more things on higher levels. I didn’t worry so much about smoothing everything out and even added a little Hill in the middle. Finally, it is conplete with a tiny little UFC octagon in the corner 🙂 I got my crabs just under a year ago but went in knowing some things about their care before making the purchase. This page helped me out a great deal.

Dimensions of Crabitat: 20x20x20 lower with a 20x10x15 top
Volume of Crabitat: 45 total
Description of Substrate: 5 to 1 play sand & ee
Description of Tank Items: We have 3 coco huts, 1 suspended in netting that runs from the substrate up to the second level were it spreads out to an open net. Second level features the net, fake ivy vines, a shelf w moss pit and coco hut, extra shells, cuttlebone, and coco fiber wall that also runs down to the substrate in the lower section. Lower section features 7″ of sub at the lowest point, fresh and salt water dishes doubled up w storage dishes for easy cleaning and bubbles for humidity, rock pile and branch for climbing, cuttlebone, shell shop, fake plants, cocohut, cork bark stacked for a hide and climbing, oaster shell filled w crushed oaster and egg shell and acurite therm / hygrometer. UTH’s on both side and one end in the upper and fully insulated with dollar store sun shades.
Comments: Had to remove ivy vines in the lower section in hopes that the temp would come up a couple more degrees. May end up getting better UTH’s as these don’t seem to be doing the trick, temp seems to be maxing out at 77! This is our very first crabitat and have only had our hermies for 1 month!
