Care is pretty easy. With no fish it doesn't need much food. About once a week I do feed a little bit of Emerald Entree to keep the crab happy and add a bit of variety to the water. I have to top it off twice a day to keep up with it. I run carbon in the little HOB filter and change it weekly. I change about 25% of the water every week.

Lighting is a 9W compact florescent. I've never had a problem with surface skum on this tank.

1 blue leg hermit crab
GSP
blue mushrooms
a ric
xenia
a couple palythoa polyps

Yep, it's 50/50 10K/actinic. For a 3 gallon I think you would be fine with 1/8th plexi.
