Re: Hermit Crab Vivarium w/ live plants, 101 gallons

I also would like to know how your plants fared this far. My crabs destroyed everything I put in the tank Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk I'll do an update video within the next few weeks. I have switched out some plants and others have been destroyed and replaced. The adansonii was way too de...

Thanks! The crabitat is in my home office where I spend most of the day so I get to appreciate it and watch the crabs' antics a lot.

Re: Hermit Crab Vivarium w/ live plants, 101 gallons

I think it turned out awesome. I love the plants you have in there! :) Calatheas are such a pain, and hate tap water. Be interesting to sed how they'll turn out in the tank. They so finicky! Thanks! I think there will be a long adjustment period to find out which plants work the best for me and the...

Hermit Crab Vivarium w/ live plants, 101 gallons

I was able to get the new vivarium set up earlier than anticipated. I love it and so do the crabs! The tank is a 36" x 36" x 18" Exo Terra terrarium. There's 11" of coco fiber substrate with UV bulbs in the hoods and a Reptifogger above. The plants on the substrate are planted in completely enclosed...

Last Look at the 101 gallon Exo Terra Terrarium

I'll soon be dismantling the setup and decor in my crabitat and replacing it with an entirely new vivarium concept. The current setup has served me and the crabs well for almost six years so I took some pictures and video before everything changes. YouTube video tour: https://youtu.be/86LZSSU-lRM ht...

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build

Very cool! I like how they are deep but don't take up much room! I see you have the cork bark leading up to them. What is inside for them to grip? I like the look of this! [emoji4] There is a piece of plastic crafting mesh on the ramp inside each dish. I've used different things over the years, but...

Thanks. Yes, the green containers are the Lock & Lock brand pantry storage bins I use as pools.

Re: 101 Gallon Exo Terra Crabitat Build (update 5/24/17)

I forgot to post a photo after I did my yearly deep clean a few weeks ago. The structure hasn't changed, I just made some repairs and replaced all their plastic plants.

I'm finally getting around to posting some updated photos the crabitat and crabs. The crabitat as of 5/17. The substrate level is a little low, but I'll be doing a deep clean in June so I'm not bothering to top it off right now. http://i63.tinypic.com/30w9udg.jpg Sesame (rug) finally changed out of ...

I haven't used those green bowls in the original photos as pools for a long time. I went back to my old Lock & Lock pantry storage bins. At their deepest point, those are 4 inches.

I need to post some current pictures of my crabitat and crabs. I'll try to work on that.
