that is pretty awesome! what does maintenance consist of for a tank like this? I guess water changes like normal, but anything else to keep the sand sculpted like that and other stuff clean?

nothing yet the crabs maintain the sand for the most part they sit there and sift through it all day. I havent had it with them in the tank long enough to know how dirty the sand will get but if it does I will probably just use a sand sifter to clean it up.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
