Back Again

Post by HermitofHermitCrabs » Wed Jul 08, 2020 11:03 pm

Not sure who remembers me here, but I kept hermit crabs from 2004 to 2010 and was an active member here during that time. Well, I was forced to get rid of my 75G terrarium and about 25 crabs of 3 different species. Fast forward to present where I now have 4 children and as of today 3 PPs in a 20G terrarium. I got everything going for them with temps and humidity in the 70s so they’re good so far. I’m going to get a heat pad soon as well as extra shells. Other than that I just have to get some saltwater mix and I should be set. Anyway, I’m glad to be back.

Welcome back. I just started a couple of years after you left, but we do have some old timers in here that you may remember. :)

Thanks it’s good to be back. I just miss all of my crab stuff, but I’m thinking about breaking down my 125G aquarium after the last of my fish are gone. That thing will take at least 6 50 lb. bags of play sand to fill up to the right height.
