My Substrate Seems Very Saturated

This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

I had this happen to me when I was first setting up their enclosure. I added to much water. One thing I have done was dig down in a corner carefully and line the hole with an absorbent towel to soak up and draw some of the moister out. Then as others have suggested, add some dry eco earth, it will soak up water to expand out and take care of extra moister.
I have owned Hermit Crabs for 2 Years

I have 1 E named Monkey and 2 PP named Shy Guy and Little P

I also own 1 PP named Dory who stays in my classroom
