I found this dish rack at the dollar store and it seems perfect as a second level. It's made of metal but it's coated... It doesn't say what it is, it just says durable finish. I would cover it with this climbing background stuff made of coconut fiber I got at the petstore and make a ramp... but is it safe?? I've read that crabs can have nothing metal??
I would just be careful that the coating doesn't flake! I have some similar things in my kitchen, and over time the coating chips and exposes the metal. The climbing background should totally make it safe, though
Crabbing since July 2014! 75 gallon with 12 Purple Pinchers.
I use a locker shelf, which is very similar. They are pretty cheap so I just replace mine once a year or so. I've never had any issues with it, and it works out great for me! Right now mine holds a shell shop, food, and a small moss pit.
