    i have just required a 3ft tank with lid and was just wondering what to put in it! i have an idea for a beach theme with half the tank being the water then sloping up to a beach but what creatures could i keep in it? will scape it with bog wood and sub aquatic plants. we have some red claw thai crabs coming in at work... any good?
