I forgot to post a photo after I did my yearly deep clean a few weeks ago. The structure hasn't changed, I just made some repairs and replaced all their plastic plants.

I absolutely love this thread!! I love how clean and uncluttered your crabitat looks! Are the two green containers your pools?

Thanks. Yes, the green containers are the Lock & Lock brand pantry storage bins I use as pools.

Very cool! I like how they are deep but don't take up much room! I see you have the cork bark leading up to them. What is inside for them to grip? I like the look of this!

Wow, looks way better. Shame to see that re-purposed water dish as a shell shop go, but I can understand way. Really opens up the tank. Looks amazing, as usual.
But the look of the multicoloured zip ties on the front of them (btw, nice touch) I'd bet my measly collection of aussie dollars that they are plastic canvas! :)

There is a piece of plastic crafting mesh on the ramp inside each dish. I've used different things over the years, but that works the best.

I have to know, did you make that "Crab Crossing" sign? I can't find anyone like it!
