    My crabitat is 20L, eco earth and sand substrate with cholla wood, a shell shop, cork round hide, coconut 🥥 hide, sal Water pool and freshwater ramp up to drink and wade so to speak. They never submerge or put their bodies in for some reason but I guess that’s a PP thing lol

    This is my 220 gallon with two 5 gallon pools. I created the river rock/sea glass walls in each pool for the crabs to easily climb in and out. They also have craft mesh bridges. Each pool has a large, real coral piece (not living). I have sticks and branches for climbing, lots of bark along the back wall, a large cork round, lots of fake foliage for hiding, moss pits, coco huts, a homemade sea glass hut, and plenty of extra shells.

    Ignore the readings on the gauge. It was a new setup and I had been messing around in the tank.

    Salt Water Pool (please ignore the heat wire, it helps control the condensation).

    I have 7 PP’s in a 75 gallon which I just recently upgraded to. I have 7-8 inches of sand/EE mix, salt and fresh water pools with bubblers and plastic craft mesh ladders to get in/out, tons of shells, 3 coconuts, a large moss pit, a hollow cork bark log, another twisted climbing log, a wheel and a flat saucer, greenery, a terra-cotta pot filled with leaf litter, a “primping” mirror which does get used by one crab in particular, 2 digital temp/humidity gauges, coroplast lids, a video camera, uvb light on a 12 hour timer.

    Midwest City, OK
    Crabitat size: 48in L x 21in H
    55 gallon
    Playsand and Eco Earth 5:1 Ratio
    2 coconut hits, Tree stump cave, Crab saucer wheel, Foraging dish (top left) with the Cholla for ladder, Shell shop (top right), Freshwater pool (left), Saltwater pool (right), lots of greenery for natural look.

    So, I was having humidity issues with my old pools a few days ago. I put these pools back in with new PennPlax filters in each (amazing!!) The pools were upgraded with some rock climbing walls (inside and outside on a small space), new rock ladders, colorful plants inside, and some craft mesh inside on the wall. Ever since the pool swap and new filters my humidity has been PERFECT with the lid tightly closed (was having to vent the lid almost every day, so annoying) loving my mew upgrades!
