cancerides' new tank

    i was at the store the other day when i saw a nice looking tank decoration, an arch made to resemble a rock formation, like the kind you'd see in a desert. so i had the idea to completely redesign my 6-inch adult female P. cancerides' 10-gallon tank. so, after a few minutes of wrestling her into a small kritter keeper (for transfering purposes, of course), i began working. many paper towels and hand washings later, i managed to complete the tank. however, the substrate (a mix of excavator clay and bed-a-beast dirt) is still too moist for a new desert theme to be used. so now, it's next to my window so it can evaporate. as for the cancerides, she's in a plastic box with a cave and the leftover substrate. surprisingly, a large kritter keeper fit on top almost perfectly, but i still have a heavy ornament on top just in case.

    i should have pictures by the time my new USB cable arrives in the mail.

    Very cool! I've seen those arches at my pet store, but the ones I've seen were all to small for an adult T to navigate. I'd love to find a big one like that.
