  After long thought, I've decided to build a shedding tank.   I don't live on the water so I am going to build it outside, under my deck.  This isn't going to be a massive operation, just a dozen or fewer crabs in this system.  What would be the best way to construct this, and is it even worth the effort?  Any help is greatly appreciated.   Huh Grin

I would think the cost of building a float and filter plus not having a stead supply of pellers would offset any advantage. Concidering that from your profile you are only a short ride across the bridge to Crisfield.  Stock up on nice fresh softcrabs on a sunday drive.  Grin

    This is only an experiment to see how it works out, I'm not in need of a steady supply of softies.  Details on how to build a small system is still appreciated.  Just in case though, where in Crisfield??

I made a small experiment like yours a few months ago. If youre going to have only a dozen or so of crabs I highly recomend to buy a small plastic pool like those used by children in summer, also get info on how to build a biofilter if you wonīt be changing the water often. also be sure to have a pump big enough to move the water trough filter and all.
hope this info itīs useful

Be careful with home shedding tanks under a deck. A good friend had done that but did not keep the ground underneath clean. The bacteria grew and grew and he got seriously ill. BE CAREFUL!
