Newly added 2nd level and shells

Post by Chapskis1 » Mon Apr 27, 2015 9:09 am

We just got our new crabs a week ago, and yesterday we added a second level, and got the habitat stocked with our new shells from Naples Seashell.

After having the shells in the tank for less than 24 hours, we have had 3 of the 6 crabs change shells!

They all seem to be adapting and eating well in their new habitat, even though they were in less than ideal conditions at the pet store they were acquired from.

Thank you for all the help and advice thus far!

It is egg crate/fluorescent light diffuser panel with burlap sewn around it (like a pillow case).

Nice! How is it held up? I think I see a suction cup?

Yes, four suction cups. Plus, I cut it a little snug, so it's basically lodged in there so tight, that it doesn't really need the suction cups, but they are there for added security.
