I used one corner caddy for moss and another for wood and seagrass baskets for shells. You'll have to go back through my pics to see. I recently redid it with a bigger moss pit using interdesign clarity containers. These are found on Amazon.

I really like the ZooMed Mesh Reptile Hammock. It comes in three sizes - small, large and giant - and can serve as a hanging lounge or even a shell shop. As my tank is only a 29g, I have a small size hung up in one corner above the raised shell shop and someone is usually up there, either just hanging out or using it as a bridge from the flowers in the cork round over to the hanging coconut.

Another crabber posted pics a while back showing how she used a dish drainer tray as a 2nd level (I think she had it resting atop small tension rods). It looked fabulous!

I don't have any more pics of my 20g set up but I had a hemp net strung across from front to back with suction cups and a couple of the magnaturals that the hermies would climb over to get to the moss pit and shell shacks. Also had a reptile vine going from sub to shell shack and moss pit. They really seemed to like that:) I second Crabinski on the member who had the dish drainer tray! That was a pretty cool set up!

If the link doesn't work (quite often my cut-and-pastes don't :( ), the topic is Food Dish on Second Level? in Crab Care, Health and Breeding August 2016.
