Can’t remember dimensions :T
Play sand and eco earth
Got some cholla, a couple coconut hides, one hanging up, shell shops, a little bird nest thing I found, plenty of moss pits, the double decker thing on the left is just a couple stackable organizing totesJanuary 23, 2018 at 2:11 pm #8036
My substrate is the correct ratio of play sand to coco fibre fully mixed through
They have a cieling climbing mesh with a long vine wrapped through to climb up and down with ease. A grapewood arch with a vine underneath. They love to hide under there. There’s an old broken water feature stone that I cleaned up and added. They love to climb it like a climbing wall. A moss basket that the two smallest crabs love to sleep in and a hamster wheel that I got from my secret Santa.January 23, 2018 at 5:17 pm #8038
