Wow. Instead of tinfoil to refect heat from Ultratherms, we should consider dead coral instead

She's up! And puce!

I threw the new tank together for her so she is exploring and seems to be having a blast tonight. :)

I really like how it came out!

That looks so nice! Probably it is because of the plastic plants. My 20 looks so bare. Like no plastic plants, moss pit taking up like the entire thing, and the substrate is fluffed up all over because the one crab which is up is making a mess everywhere, and I cannot reorganize the tank or make it nice because 3 molters are down.

Oh, well those just looked awfully small to me, I thought they were food dishes.

Oh I am in love with that little crab, you got such a great shot. <3 The tank looks awesome too with lots of fun places for hiding. :)

She is all over the tank, pooping like a mad crab, and last night found the lid and was doing laps! I enjoy when she is up so much. ImageImageImageImage
