Haha There will definitely be loads of pics I'm going to have to make the lid a little more secure this time too, so no crabs decide to make a run for it lol

I've been thinking... I have nearly a full bag of calci sand left over and was thinking about putting some in the water part of the tank but if I then decided to add some sort of fish would they cope with the amount of calcium that the sand gives off?

The crabs I had last time seemed to spend the majority of their lives on the land so something has to live in the water to keep the cycle alive. Right? haha

How's your tank Siva?

Hmm..I'm really not sure how that would work putting it in the water portion. Maybe give it a shot and test pH for a while. If it doesn't skyrocket, my guess is that it would be fine. Might make the water cloudy though? I just don't know...

It's going alright..I guess. I did such a great job building a nice habitat for them with so many hiding spots that now..I never really see them. lol If I could do it all over I would design it a little different I think. I might try to do something new with it. I don't know. One of them died trying to molt the other day. If that's going to keep happening I'll just give up on them and use the palu for something else. I'm really hoping some of them are going to stay alive long term.

I've given up too, I've been trying to dry out all the 'dirt' this weekend - thankfully we've had an indian summer, otherwise I'd never get it dry lol. I have a spare tank now though and wondering what to do with it haha
