1 hermit in need of home central NJ

Post by Ashdeep » Wed May 01, 2019 9:51 pm

Hello All,

My daughter brought home 2 hermit crabs from the beach last summer (bought by a well meaning grandparent). Only 1 survived. His name is Pinchy and he’s awesome but I am afraid he is lonely and since my kid has lost interest I can’t see getting another one to be his friend.
He is currently in a 10 gallon with two heaters and lots of fixings, if anyone local would like to add him to an existing crabitat I’d be happy to drive up to 3 hours to meet or drop him off and would be happy to give the tank as well. I just figure they are social creatures and he’d likely be better off in a social atmosphere. If no one is interested I will keep looking after him as I am a little attached at this point.

Thanks!
Ashley

I am going to sound so ignorant but I am not sure. I think an ecuadorian. He is relatively large and has a dark color, close to purple. Should I send a picture?

Hi Ashley - I’m interested in seeing a photo because I’m curious to see how large your crab is. I could potentially take it. I have a 55 gallon with 2 small and 1 large. I’m in South Philly, close to the Walt Whitman bridge.

That’d be great. Very familiar with south philly worked there for years. I would absolutely come to you if you were interested.[[i
He is in a shell that is slightly bigger than a golf ball. I am too dumb to figure out how to attach a pic on this site. any idea how I do that or if we exchange emails I can include the pic in that. Sorry for my stupidity on this.
Thanks
Ashley

Hello. I have two hermit crabs. A very large purple and medium red that would love another play mate. If yours isn't already adopted. I'm in lumberton, nj.
