Hermit Crab

I'm sure by now you all know of my 75 gallon tank.
If not: http://www.fishforum.com/aquarium-lo...ters.php?t=812

I would love to add a few hermit crabs. However, everywhere I go I see them with dry land. Is there any kind of hermit crab I can put in a fish tank that has no dry land?

My tank is fresh water.

I have never heard of a truely aquatic freshwater hermit crab. Every species I have ever seen for freshwater needs to have a way to get out of the water and the tanks they are kept in rarely have more than a water bowl in them as a water source. There are species of crab that are fresh water and cold be kept in an aquarium though so that is an option.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Hermit Crabs by themselves are boring!!!

No offense to anyone who disagrees.
O-well. Guess no hermits for me.

I have only heard of marine (Saltwater) Hermit Crabs as far as water is concerned. Terrestrial (land) Hermit Crabs are easy to care for if you can't find anything more desirable.
