Stuff like cholla and cork is pretty cheap, and they look really good. Fake plants are also a good option. For water pools, you can use plastic tubs, and you can also use a shower caddy as a moss pit. If you want more hides, you could use a plastic tub flipped upside down with a hole cut in it as a door(sort of like a snake humidity box). That's all I know, but I'm not that great at decorating. Hope this helps!

Make a popsicle stick bridge! You just need the sticks (you can get a box of 1000 for like $5) and twine to weave around the ends, over-under style. I made this one for my crabbies!

You can also build hides and structures out of legos. I've also gotten fish tank decor like coral archways and wrapped them in craft mesh to give them something to crawl on.

Otherwise all of asiankanye's suggestions were great, too!

I love making levels out of numerous items, like shower caddies, pvc platform - make legs out of pvc, and put a slate tile on top for example -, wood, vines ect. Crabs love the climb and also enjoy hiding in the decor.
