    I like how you didn't use colorful designs and helmets.. Nice enclosure as well, A+.

    You have both fresh and salt water available, right? BTW - My guess on the one crab would be ruggie. The shape of the eyes gives it away.

    It is one of the better crabitats I've seen.

    You make some great set ups for your pets...you should be an interior designed who caters to animals in terreriums!

    Just noticed something. Do you have a lid for that crabitat? If not, you need one. Crabs are little escape artists. Without a lid, they will go walkabout, eventually. Outside of their crabitat, they may not live long.

    hi! thanks everyone =) I do have a lid and both fresh and salkt water =) I still need a humidity guage though. My petsmart doesnt carry the Flukers anymore ( I really can't afford the $20 digital they have) Does anyone know where I can find one~on the cheap side?

    I only seen one crab on the upper levels. The smaller crabs are out day and night, but my BIG HULK only comes out at night. thanks everyone!

    Look in the hardware department, not the pet area. They carry a whole variety of thermometers there. Also, they change stock on a seasonal basis, so they may not have them right now. Try hardware first, though.

    And the garden department there or at Lowes or Home Depot etc.

    you will find a lot of the things you will need at hardware/garden home improvement stores, at better quality, and considerable savings over the pet shop stuff!
