Help! Is anyone available to take in 1 hermit crab in metro detroit, Michigan?

Post by mm832 » Wed Nov 11, 2020 11:41 pm

I'm in the process of adopting these 2 hermit crabs I saw on FB market place in Monroe, Michigan. Look at the metal tank, lack of substrate, and painted shells :( I was compelled to take them in. However, I only have tank space to take 1 hermit crab only......taking 2 would be pushing it. Is ANYONE in the area able to rehome 1 of them? Location is also close to Toledo, Ohio!

***UPDATE: I currently have both of them in an quarantine tank as I don't have room in my main tank for both of them. Still looking for someone to take 1 of them in metro detroit area!

I'm close to Toledo and have space for a crab, though I'm a noob to crabbing, to be completely honest. I've only been crabbing since this past summer.

Currently I have 3 crabs in a 40 gallon breeder tank. Lots of substrate, stable heat/humidity, moss pits, fresh and salt water pools, lots of hiding spots, varied diet with access to calcium, worm castings, and fresh vegetation at all times. I'm working on a tank topper from our old 10 gallon for more climbing space. PM me if you're still interested in giving one away.

Thanks for responding. I actually picked them up weeks ago and now have them with me in Detroit. I have them in a temporary quarantine tank. I guess I should change the listing title.
