    Hello all, My name is Jenn I am new to the forum and also to crabbing. About 1 mo. ago I purchased 3 hermit crabs from a flea market. Since then I have been trying to get their home to be just perfect for them. I started off with a 10 gal. med size gravel, fake rock bowl w/ a lrg. sea sponge in it, an under aquarium heater also. I couldn't seem to get the temp up over 70 though so I lost two of them. Since then I switched substrate to play sand and added another under tank heater. This seems to work a little better. I just returned from the flea market a little while ago with 3 more hermies. 1lrg, 1med, 1sm. They seem to be adjusting fine and I just had the privelage of witnessing my 1mo. old hermie switching shells. It was amazing. I am looking forward to all of your feedback!!
    Jenn,
    Big, Ball, #2, and Pikito
