Hello everyone!

Hey there! Just thought I'd introduce myself. I don't have any fish yet, due to the fact that my tank hasn't completed its cycle yet, but I currently have 18 land hermit crabs of two different species in a 55g tank. Originally I was using my future fish tank, a 29g, for my hermit crabs, but I upgraded to the 55g last summer and I just had to put something in my 29g (you can't let a good tank sit around empty! ). I attempted to start a fishless cycle last November, but I never read anything about the possibility of too much ammonia killing your bacteria...so for the last few months I've been wondering why in the world my cycle has been taking so long. I finally found some very helpful information on this site, and I'm going to be replacing most of the water and restarting the cycle pretty soon. Anyway, as you can tell, I'm pretty new to the fishkeeping hobby.

Thank you, everyone, for all your welcomes! I'm attempting to post pictures of my tanks and a few of my crabs, but I don't know how successful I'll be...Anyway, the first photo is my aquarium with no fish (although it does have some algae). It's a freshwater aquarium, by the way, although you experts probably could guess that from my first post. The second picture is my hermit crab tank. The third is my largest Ecuadorian, Princess, who I've had for 9 months. The last picture shows my two largest hermit crabs, both purple pinchers, Petra (on the left) who I've had for 3 years, and Cannonball (on the right) who I've had for 2 years and 2 months.
