Well, it would be nice if the big chain pet stores would get on board, but I don't think that's very likely. And it's not just with hermit crabs that they are falling short, either. Pet stores are, first and foremost, for-profit businesses, and their bottom line LIKES buying hermit crabs in bulk for...

Like Motorcrab, I pick and choose what sounds right to me and for my hermits. The basics in most groups don't differ all that much. If I dislike anything, it's the groups (and there are ones out there) that are 100% certain that everything they espouse is The Gospel of Hermit Crab Care and should ne...
I hope all goes well. Maybe your success with help others. There may come a day (soon I hope) when captive bred hermit crabs are the norm, and more happily kept as pets. Everytime someone has a thread about successful breeding I watch with fingers crossed! Sent from my cp3705AS using Tapatalk Me, t...
I've moved 387 in shells (from this summer's first spawn) to land as of last night. There have already been some losses (my fault). I found three drowned in the freshwater today. It was a "pool" I used last year with no losses, but they were probably a few months older when I used it last year. I've...

Hi, Shannon. I'm in Lockport and my daughter lives in downtown Rochester. I'm definitely interested but would have to seriously rethink some of my tank arrangements. I have a 120 tall and a 55 and I already have straws, Es, and PPs but have been interested in acquiring ruggies for a while. Just not ...
I can't express how excited I am and honored to have Abby join our crabby household--either on a breeding loan, or in whatever way gets decided long term. She will be an honored member for as long as we have her and I can't wait to see what happens moving forward. Very hopeful to have the chance to ...
