Michael has hermit crabs in his tank and we are wondering if the hermit crabs that walk around on sand are different than what he has (they live submerged in water, 24/7)? Anyone know?

Thanks.

hi
i had Land Hermit crabs years ago,and they only have a little bit of
water as they could drown.I did however use to put them in a small bowl
of water that would be a little deeper than there water bowl,
as it helped to rinse them out.
sorry i can't remember the anatomy of the crabs,but it did help them
usually befor they burried themselves in the sand
to shed their skin.
HTH a bit. :)
