Thanks! Yes, they are quite fascinating!! And addicting!! It seems like every time i get to the pet store i have to stop by the hermit crab tank.... lol

Here is my set up- It is quite small compared to some people i know. Some people have 100 gallon tanks full of hermies!!



here are some pics of my crabbies

Cool! I love the hammock.

The place I go on vacation every year had people selling them for essentially souvenirs, which is sad, but I'm always tempted! I'm headed there in a few weeks and may have to do some more research on proper care beforehand :D

Beautiful habitat you've made there. Those are some lucky Herits you've got there. I love Land Hermits too, I had them when I was young.

thanks!! Yeah, they love climbing around everywhere.

I know, it is sad to see people selling them as toys and souvineers instead of as living creatures. I hate it when i see them in painted shells and open cages in some pet stores

okiemavis- if you want, i can PM you some great hermit crab websites that tell how to care for them if you are thinking about getting some crabs =]

yea you really do have a great place for them, im sure you see the conditions some people keep them in whichs make them seem they seem more like a toy then an animal. but i love your hermit tank, they must be in heaven :D

Yes please! I really am going to get some :D

I've already set aside a spot for a tank in my soon-to-be-established fish wall just for them!
