That's really cool. Just one thing. The substrate needs to be a minimum of 6 inches all the way across. Then you can build up one side for a slope.

Looking like a great start! HG gave good advice about the sub. Are you using all EE?
The water dishes need to be deep enough that the crabs can submerge fully, but also have a way to climb out.
I love the big climbing bridge! Where did you get it?

Very cool, I love your second level. Like HG said, have your substrate at least 6in and then work on your slope, they need the molting space. I love your little guy sitting up on top, he is so cute! You’ve done a great job on your tank.
Edit: is that a waterfall!? Sooo cool! I love that dolphin statue.
