Hey WUAH, here's the deal, my husband purchased me hermit crabs for
my birthday without realizing how much care they need. I quickly
fell in love with these little guys just like any other living
thing. I thought I was giving them a great home until one passed
away, I quickly did research and realized I was doing it all wrong.
I know this is not a serious wish to some and it may seem foolish
but it's extremely serious issue.
I realized they need multiple shells, because they like to change
shells quiet often (if they don't like a shell they wont go in it),
if there is no shells they can get stressed out and that can lead
to death. They have to have shells.
Marine Salt, Crabs cannot drink or bathe in tap water, it's toxic
to them and they can die from this.
Humidity & Temp monitor is a must have with Hermit crabs, if
you don't have one and the Humidity level or temperature gets too
high or low it can kill them.
Which leads to the Heat lamp and bulbs to keep the tank at the
I've made an amazon wishlist, the things marked "Emergency" in the
comment second of the WL are the things I need really soon. The
other items are items I plan on buying when I get extra cash.
Also, if anyone has any used aquarium items like plastic plants,
decorations or anything that would just as helpful.
It would mean so much to me if someone could help, I'm super
attached to these little guys they are so social and therapeutic
and I don't want to have to get rid of them, I want them to leave a
happy life just like they should.
