    I added a waterfall and MORE levels with MORE SHELLS! I only have 4 right now, but I plan on getting more as soon as they come up from molting!

    Check this out, have ya seen a hermit crab tank like this? lots of fun to have crabs when they live like this!


    right side (cool with uth under water to add humidity)


    left side (warm)


    net with Hulk's shells


    More levels on warm side under lamps for toasty molting!


    levels with shells on left by the waterfall


    levle on right too small for my crabs but I am getting E's soon that should fit


    This is Matt the 3 year old I babysit~his crabs lol =) Hulk, Spidergirl, Batman, Dash (2 PP and 2 Ruggies in that order =))

    well what do you all think? I love decorating tank ha ha

    Awww! He looks pretty big for 3! Maybe it's the casual, kicked-back attitude in his body language... :)

    thanks so much! you know they are very interesting when given a cool place to live ;) I remember having some when I was younger and I only had gravel as the flooring, but they need sand or eco earth or forest bedding to molt and thus grow and survive~and they are really fun to watch climb>they are great climbers! The only drag right now is all but one is under molting so not much going on =)
