What's the center decoration? The one with dark tops and lighter on the bottom? Love the tat!

It's a plastic mushroom trunk I believe, I got it from Pet Smart.

It's been a loong time since I've done an update so here it goes.
I've got 11 hermits currently and sadly I lost Kida, Octavius and Bruiser mentioned above by molting problems / lack there of and an a dig up :( That was all a long time ago though.
I've lost track of which small crab is who so I'm in the process of re-naming them one by one as they come up from molting.
My current clan is in two separate tanks. The 20g tall has six 1/2"-3/4" shelled hermits (biggest to smallest) Kaylee, Aries, Turbo, Pepper, Flower and Freckles. This is Turbo (tiny murex) with someone (idk who, in a green turbo). Another pic, this one of Kaylee climbing the suction cups. ImageImage
My 37g has 5 from 1/2"-1 1/8" shelled crabbies (from biggest to smallest) Toby, Sid, Matty, Junior and Adrian. Photos -> Sid, Junior before his shell change, and Matty climbing. ImageImageImage No photos of the littlest Adrian because he only comes out at night or rather 3am. or Toby because he's digging around in the 12" of sub.

Thanks! They're great shells, they all love them. That striped tapestry you see Junior with is what he's in now. That's his first shell change with me!!

The "idk who" pictured above passed away. The smalls I used to have in the 10g are in much better, cleaner conditions and doing much better now in the 20g I've had for a while. Currently 6 in there. Biggest to smallest about 7/8" - 1/2" Kaylee, Aries, Turbo, Flower, Boo and Freckles.
Needing to upgrade my 37g but I have from biggest to smallest Toby, Baby, Sid, Matty, Junior and Adrian.
•Sid and Matty at antenna wars, probably deciding who gets the mushroom log.
• Matty (turbo) and Baby (tulip) getting acquainted
•Adrian appreciating the leaves I straightened
•The Trench / unwanted shell hole
•Sid napping after a long night of claws on lid.

This little purple beauty has yet to be renamed since I lost track of everyone in the 20g tall. Love their coloring, every time I see them up I can't stop staring!

This isn't even crab related but I'm a little envious of your long fingernails, LOL.

Thank ya my dear!
•Toby out of his too-small magpie and into a smaller petholatus. Even smaller than Sid's and Toby can't even hide his head let alone claws.
• Poseidon (Sid) is trashing the place, recently found out she's a she. But I forget and call her handsome every now and again oops.
•All these shells they could wear but nooooo they want tiny ones, 'cause fitting shells is ridiculous...
