This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

I’m no expert so I can’t say if it’s safe or not but it looks to be very similar to the sheet of craft mesh I bought at JoAnns...it’s hard to tell since it’s still in the package

That's tulle, it's like a fabric. Probably won't hold up very well in the crabitat, and isn't nearly as sturdy as craft mesh. I'm not sure that crabs would be able to climb it.
Another name for craft mesh is 'plastic canvas'. Like this:

With a quick Google search it appears to be very similar to a body wash poofie. Thin material with holes. I am with curlysister on this one. A bored crab could probably shred that into bits overnight. Tiny pieces of plastic in even a small tank would be a nightmare cleaning up. I personally wouldn't use that type of material in my crabitat.

What about scrap fish net? I thought maybe you were wanting the mesh for pools or ladders. I bought scrap net from Naples to use in the future.
