crabtank

Heya people, this is my new project. I know, its not actually fish. but since they need water and most of their related species live in water I wanted too share my new crabtank with you guys. The crab comes the 11th of July, but their home is done already.

The crabs will be for now 3 geosesarma sp. Celebes, in dutch they are called vampire crabs. they have black bodies and purple talons/scissors and bright yellow to orange eyes, their carapace is 1 inch, and total length is like 2 inches. They are excellent climbers and really fast, all escape holes I have closed with duct tape.

Enjoy the first photo's.

New waterfall, from exo terra. Looks really nice, also has a fogging system for high humidity.

It's buildable in compartments, for cleaning, you can see the fog in the reservoir

Done for the moment, I put in some java vern since their leaves are sturdy and will do just fine in a high humidity environment, with the fogger turned on I can reach a humidity of almost 100%, wich I need to have once or twice a day to simulate rainfall
