Pictures of your 10gal crabitat

Post by Life_Is_Good2me » Wed Feb 08, 2017 3:23 pm

My crabs are in a 10 gal crabitat and I'm looking for ideas to spice it up. Can you post pics of yours and all the things you have inside? Thanks!

Cholla, or suction cup shower caddies are always a nice addition to any new tat. Like others mentioned a moss pit is another good edition as it provides a hide. I used to have a small shower caddy when I had my 10 gallon, and I had moss in it. I also had a small soap dish that I used to keep their food on. It was pretty cramped, but I did it to maximize the space i did have. Cocofiber mats on the back wall is an idea too, but I suggest a side wall as to not block your uth.

No problem! The bird section is also a cool place to find crab stuff. Just stay away from ceder. But plastic ladders work perfectly for climbs and such. :)
