ohhh waterfall!

Anyone have one of these? Looks awesome!! I think I decided to crabitize my 75g and make it SUPER neat and realistic.

Only concern is materials being crab safe as well as the pool depth. Crabbies don't have to go in it because there will be other pools, and I think it would boost my already decent humidity( currently at 77%)

thanks!

I got one second hand...I am not sure if it was messed up or not, but it worked....the only problem with mine was it leaked or I kept overfilling it somehow??? I don't really know how, but when I finally noticed all the water gathering in the substrate, I stopped using it.

Oh yeah, I didn't use it with my crabs, I used it with my Tokay gecko. I am not sure if the crabs could get in the back of the waterfall where it has an opening and not be able to get out.

I still have it, I can take a pic of the back for you so you can see it. I think if you put a shell or something in it so the crabs can get out it will be safe?

I was sad about the leak though( I guess mine was broken) cause it was really pretty!

I had a waterfall like a year and a half ago, but had to take it out after a short while. Since the crabs where climbing in it and all, they dragged a lot of substrate into the waterfall. It was both hard to keep clean, and the water pump didn't do so well with sand in it. ^^ But the hermit crabs sure liked it. :D

thanks! I really couldn't see the back well in the picture, and had no idea there was a gap. i could probably put plastic net or a shell on the back. I have tons of sealant so I can probably just add a layer to any seams too. I figured I would buy it now ( I work at Banfield and we have associate coupons this week!!) and then see if it fits or overwhelms the tank. If its stinky and too big I can return it. BUt I hope it works because thats just too stinkin neat to have in a tank!!


I can only imagine how cool it would sound!!

So I did buy it, and i didn't even fill it. It was a really cheap sandstone type material, and it was crumbling pieces in my hand. no way that was going in my tank!!

Good think i keep receipts!
