    pet goods has BAD conditions for hermies. they keep them in a WOODEN FRAMED CAGE (!)with NO FOOD (?!?!?) and NO WATER, just these blue crystal type things in a dish,AND to top it off, there was absolutely NO substrate, not even a centimeter (!!) and every crab looked dead and had a painted shell (!?!?!>_<!)

    Pet Goods is the place! grrr....

    Those are the worst conditions I've ever heard of, besides crab in a cup. <sigh> It's just really discouraging to know there are stores out there that treat animals this way.

    That is the second worst store I've heard about.
    The first...land hermit crabs in a tank full of water.LAND hermit crabs. Like Napolean ywould say..."Gosh, IDIOT!"

    Are you SURE they were land hermit crabs??? That's just crazy!!! I think when the store got the shipment of "LAND HERMIT CRABS", it might have been their first hint that the crabs don't go underwater.

    Yup, positive. The poor crab owner that had to witness that rescued the ones that hadn't drowned already. Poor things. What's next-Angelfish in the scorpion tank?

    I'm so glad the mall near my house stopped selling hermies in the kiosks. I'd either cringe or glare at the shopkeep(or whatever you wanna call em) whenever I passed by. Unfortunately, a little pet store opened up in the same mall and has a tank of hermies. [​IMG] Great, just great!
