36◊18◊18 a reptile tank and its a small internal pump filter I converted into a bigger filter by taking the lower camber off. I use a Fluval media bag and some filter wool.

And put every thing in a food container cut holes in it for the water to pass through it and sealed it ran the hose line through the base to make it look like it was a waterfall

The island looks good. Cool. Do you know your water volume?

How are your Fiddlers and Red Claws getting along so far? I have 1 Fiddler in in my 40 gallon right now and I'm wondering about adding a Red Claw. My only concern is I've made 2 makeshift landings and the tank is about 16 inches Height-wise and about 13 inches high with water, with a branch leading up to one landing and rocks eclipsing the water for my second land piece and im worried that there might not be enough land and they would fight

Not if you have enough land and water space they should be good. Mine are doing fine. My biggest red claw has killed 3 red claws when I had them separate from the fiddlers. The fiddlers are very calm. I thought it was going to be crazy in the tank with just them then I added the fish. I was on stand by for a couple of weeks and in those weeks 1 fish died. But they have had some fry since. It would be nice to see your set up

ID:	315810 Its nothing amazing like your set up since this is my first aquarium but I wanted a small amount of land for a crab or two without giving up a good amount of water volume for plenty of fish, since I first tried to create a mound of sand substrate for an shoreline against the left or right side. I settled for two pieces of wood with suction cups attached and I set those above the water line(its a bit high as I just topped off after my water change), on one side I have Dragonstone leading up and the other side I have a branch. As my crab gets bigger I'd like to extend out the piece around the back glass of the tank. My Fiddler manages to find a way up and ive never seen him stuck at the bottom of the tank for more than a few hours or when molting. As for the lid I bought a 40 gallon Reptile lid with the grated wire so no escape attempts yet.

Your tank looks good I would lower the water just a tad so the crab doesn't find away out. And did you make the platform or you bought it and I would go with the turtle platform it's a little bigger and you can put some vegetation on it for him to hide mine like to bury them selfs under the substrate. But all in all it looks good
