Upgrading!

Post by ha_haley » Mon Apr 15, 2019 1:10 am

So I’m picking up a 150 gallon tank this Saturday. I’m going to combine all the crabs from my 75 gallon and my 40 gallon and get rid of both of this tanks.

I’m basically going all out on this tank because I want it to be the last one I ever have to set up. I’m building a false bottom, upgrading pools, buying some new decor.

I’ve hated the look of my 75 gallon for awhile, but couldn’t figure out what to do decoration wise. So I’d love if everyone could posts pictures of their tanks so I could get some decorating ideas.

I finally got my false bottom in and siliconed, so hopefully next weekend I’ll be mixing up all my substrate and decorating! I’m dreading leaving my 75 gallon tank up while I wait for my 2 crabs to come up. Especially since my one E just went down a few days ago and usually takes a month or so every molt. Hopefully no one else goes down between now and next week. My bedroom is going to be so crowded with 3 tanks. ImageImage

Just a heads up but crabs can pinch through and get under that top layer of false bottom there. They can pinch through zip ties and the egg crate.

Thanks for the heads up! I have it layered with craft mesh as well. I saw this method used a lot in another group with good results and figured I would try it. Worse case scenario, I take it out if anything happens!

I finally got a day off, so I’ve been up all night working on my tank. It’s not completely done, but I’m happy with how it’s turning out. I just plugged in my heater, so I’m waiting for the tank to heat up before moving my crabs.

Wow! Looks good! Just wondering are those bird ladders?
I have had pets in the past, but my family can’t have any furry or feathered ones due to allergies. I usually try my best to help and currently trying to set up a crabitat. I also try to treat others with Love!❤️
