I ordered some coconut huts already nicely made via gumtree, a mangrove root tree to come also via gumtree and some dishes from Lori in US.September 26, 2015 at 2:53 pm #3496
It’s coming along nicely!September 27, 2015 at 9:58 am #3508
Thanks!! I decided to turn the driftwood upside down and it now looks like this:

I turned the lights on and the temperature came up to 27-28oC 80-82oF.
I was using an old style thermometer as I need to get replacement battery for the one that came with the tank.
I’m getting paid on Saturday and will buy some plants and some 3M command strips and the Hygrometer – Thermometer with Wireless controller that you have, Stacy via the CSJ Amazon store.September 27, 2015 at 10:16 am #3511Anne GradyParticipant
The having to take it off to even feed them would be a problem for me at times. I usually have help, but not always. Better I just skip the beautiful lid and stick with the glass ones I have.September 27, 2015 at 10:18 am #3512
I’ve been sliding the lid cover back to just sit hanging down on the edge of the back of the tank and then just ask hubby to help getting it back on again. A bit of a nuisance but I like the look and at least I know they can’t escape lolSeptember 27, 2015 at 10:20 am #3513
I have a sliding door at the front. I’m going to keep it just beneath the level of the door on the right hand side so I can slide that open and put food and water in, then slide it back and lock it. That’s the neat thing about a Reptile One Saburra 120 VivariumSeptember 27, 2015 at 10:36 pm #3540
I’ll be getting the sand on Saturday. I just bought a battery for the temperature gauge until my wireless hygrometer-thermometer arrives via AmazonSeptember 27, 2015 at 10:43 pm #3541
No crabbies until everything is within ranges of temperature and humidity and I have everything prepared. So hard to wait but I know it is for the best.September 28, 2015 at 7:10 am #3545MicheleParticipant
Wow, your tank is really coming along! Just remember, its good to be excited but don’t let it get ya stressed. I tend to stress when I’m working on mine.
My main crabitat is a trophy display built for me many years ago by my late uncle. Its currently in the shop being reinforced as the stress of several hundred pounds of sand was beginning to take a toll. It has sentimental value, you know how that goes… ^.^ The other night I was telling my husband that I wanted to somehow connect the display tat and the 55g tank together. Have the main tat as their primary living space and the tank for molting. But how could we accomplish that without doing overly intrusive ‘damage’ to the display? He replies “FERRET TUBES!” (Sometimes I get this irresistible urge to smack him!! (Affectionately of course! :D)
Friday I got a message from the cabinet company saying it was going to take longer to finish the crabitat because they broke the glass. (Nope! No stress here!) And that was after my daughter brought back 2 pps to live with Mom… 5 hermies all trying to sleep on the same piece of cholla is a bit crowded. LOLSeptember 28, 2015 at 3:35 pm #3551
Vanessa I am so jealous of that sliding door! I have to keep my tank on the floor, it’s just easier for me to get into it plus it would be so heavy.
I’m really like that wireless hygrometer/thermometer.September 28, 2015 at 3:37 pm #3552
Michelle you need some plexiglass to make a bridge tunnel thingie and then maybe drape some netting down through it? Macgyver it!
I tried doing a tank topper back in 2005 when I got my first strawberries and it worked out ok but was a bit of a PITA to manage when I needed to get into the tank and move stuff. There wasn’t much inspiration on the internet back then so I had to do it myself and I’m not all that creative.September 28, 2015 at 7:15 pm #3556PamParticipant
Vanessa, did you get the one with the remote or just the main unit. Just curious.
