    Hi!

    My name is Sarah and I've had hermit crabs for over a year now.   I started with a cheap-o kit because that's what they had where I got my first crab, and then upgraded the very next day to a 10 gallon tank.   He's still around and still kicking.

    About 2 months ago I got a 29 gallon tank from my fiancé so I wouldn't have to re-home my guys (I had a little bit less room than I should have had for the amount of crabs I have).  Now everyone lots of extra room!  I have 16 guys, only one of which is of any substantial size -- most of my guys are smalls and I have two tinys.  I was going to stay with 14, but 2 guys caught my eye at this souvenir shop and I had to get them because they didn't deserve to be there.  If I could have rescued the 100 or so crabs that were there, I would have.  But no room.

    My crabs are:

    Viktor, Ron, Harry, Tonks (v), Norbert (v), Lupin (v), Cedric, Pig, Fred, George, Anubis, Horus, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Valiant, and X.

    V = viola

    All the rest are PPs.

    My non-crabbing life:

    I'm a history major and I graduate next May.  I have a dog, a rabbit, and 5 fish along with the hermit crabs.   I enjoy reading, sleeping, and learning.  

    Anyway, I'm glad to be here! :D

    Hi Sarah! It's nice to meet you! I'm Mandee, and I'm new to the forum as well. I'm one of those research-before-you-buy-anything people, so since I'm going to pick up my babies in January, I thought it'd be nice to be prepared well in advance. I'd love to get to know you better! Welcome!  :hula:

    @ Vckums:  Thank you!

    @ CrabHappy:  Thank you!  It's nice to meet you, too.  I wish I had been prepared before buying, but it's too late now.  I also wish someone had told me that hermit crabs were addictive. x3
