    Terrarium Tour

    I got a request to post another little tour so I took some shots today since I won't be leaving the house with 12" + of snow and the roads all closed. This isn't everything just a peek at some of the bigger setups.

    Here's the main Geosesarma sp. Red Vampire Crab jungle it's a 40 gallon tank with about 3 pairs of adult crabs and several broods of various sized babies anywhere from hatchlings to 1/2" in size.





    Crab Pond #1 (left side)


    Crab Pond #2 (right side)


    This is a 10 gallon tank setup as a vertical with a mossy wall where I put a pair of the red crabs they dug tunnels all through the wall (they love to climb) they recently had their first litter of babies in here.




    Here is a mat of Riccia where the baby crabs have been molting, you can see the clear empty molts on the right and left and part of a freshly molted baby down on the bottom in the middle trying to hide.



    Here's a baby crab on land, I don't know when they start to get their shocking red color, for now they are the same color as wet peat so I put a red arrow to indicate where to look



    This is another 10 gallon crab tank, I only have one female crab in here, I have to catch a male for her out of the big tank if I ever see one.



    This is another 10 gallon vertical with a black violin mantis in it, most are tan



    Here's the black violin mantis



    Here's the tan Violin mantis (in a different terrarium)



    This tank is just plants



    My Utrics, N. jacquelinae and N. jamban



    Lowland Neps



    The cloud at the top is the Avicularia avicularia tarantulas house

    Crab and mantis heaven!

    ... I would advise against keeping the cats in the terrariums though. I think they like more space than that.

    Thanks guys! I still have about 6 more tanks that need decorating & planting, there's a 37 gallon sliding front cube, a 56 gallon cube aquarium (which can be made into a sliding front), two 20 highs made into sliding front verticals and a couple more 10 verticals that are unused.

    I'd like to do an "all rock & mud bank" setup for raising the baby crabs with a waterfall, moss and lithophytes it would make them easier to spot and catch for people as they grow. I'm going to carve the rocks and rock walls out of foam and cover them in floor patch cement paste or portland cement. I'd like to do that in a sliding front 55 gallon though so that means another tank to buy & modify next time petco has a tank sale...

    The cats are let out of their terrariums if they're good! LOL
