Nice hermie tank!
From aussieJJDude on 07/05/12
Love your PPs your E's are a bit white! what are your crabbies sizes, they might soon grow out of it. you might want to add some more climbing places like shower caddies, the suction cup kind. then have some cholla wood going up to it. You can use moss to place in the shower caddy they really like it. (sorry i get a bit carried away) place some pill bugs (roly poly bugs)in there, they eat the left over food and they make a nice snack! if you havent already go to the HCA (hermit crab association) for more ideas.
