new crab tank
I have a thread in the riparium part, but seeing as I'm starting a new set up for my crabs I figured that I'd post here to get some other info. The tank that I've acquired is about 48 inches long, 12 wide and 20 tall. I'm thinking of doing a false bottom on part of it to hold some plants, and give the crabs a spot to get out of the water. I have lots of questions.
1. Any suggestions?
2. How you I seal the expanding foam that I see lots of others using?
3. How do I anchor any coco husk to the walls, and does it need to be sealed?
4. How does one prevent the husk from growing slime algae in high humidity? How you clean it?
5. I'm thinking of doing a stream/waterfall for the water return. How do I make one, and anchor it to the wall?
6..What type of plants should I look for?
I'll post pictures as I go. My first steps are going to be building a stand, and painting the back black.
