I am planning on having small micro or tiny hermit crabs so the substrate will be at least 6” tall. I need an under tank heater for (the back of) my tank. I saw that the brand hermit crab A...

Re: 3 crabs changed shells and died

I’m sorry that happened, did they have painted shells on, because they could have been put into painted shells with it still wet and dried with them in it, and when they changed shells they could have hurt themselves. (This is only a guess)

What does the Relative humidity need to be in a crabitat? And what does the real humidity need to be?
The humidity needs to be at least 75% in your crabitat, but it is much better for your crabs to have it around 80%. Hope this helps!

Re: Molting stress!!!

When you found the legs under the shell, was it a full leg or the exoskeleton of the leg?

Can you have this allergy to hermit crabs?

Hi, I’m going to be a hermit crab owner soon, and I was wondering if someone has a shellfish allergy would be able to handle hermit crabs. My brother may have an allergy to shellfish and was planning on having one too. If anyone knows please tell. Thanks!

What should I do?

:? I am going to be a hermit crab owner soon, I saw the hermit crab care sheet on this website, and it said you need the largest sized under tank heater for the back or side. I have a twenty gallon high (the back side is 24x16), and I have an order coming from amazon for a 6” by 8” (8watts). Should ...

Re: Jumpy crab?

I’m not a hermit crab parent yet, soon will be, but I have done some research and I would probably agree with the above. I do not have experience yet, so consider your options. Hope this helps!

Re: Fight Aftermath

I am not a hermit crab parent yet, but I have done a lot of research. If I were you, my guess would probably be to isolate him until he recovers or gets bigger and maybe get him a friend. Also if you do do that dip the crabs every so often in each other’s water dish so they will get familiar with ea...

Re: Is this safe for hermit crabs?

Thanks, (btw I meant a high tank) when I finish setting up my tank I will see if the humidity is is low or not (I live in Florida and it is pretty humid) and if it isn’t I will probably follow one of your ideas. Just one more question if I do cover the top with press-n-seal or plastic wrap, how will...
