:dontknow: thought this might be helpful to have in here!
Michelle and I were talking awhile ago about a hermit crab calculator exactly for this. There's so many things to factor in here though. Size of the tank, is there levels, how big are the crabs, can they bury on the levels etc.
some people say a gallon per crab, but that's really off! having a crab in one gallon tank is way too small, espcially if it a jumbo crab or a medium.
I all depends on the size like Vicki said.
We are still working on this but here is the intermediate reckoning for size of crab / tank

I had an idea I ran past amie, since she does awesome vectors of crabs, so hopefully we can get that going soon as well..
?? be sure to run it by me too! LOL
