    Juliet, Wasabi, and him are always hanging out in the same corner. I think they are excluding Smokey!

    They probably are not excluding Smokey. Hermit crabs don't really think that way. I would guess that your tank is either too hot or too cold or too humid or to arid. They are probably hanging out in the corn that best suits their needs. You should probably recalibrate your gauge.

    Ok, if you want to know how to make it move like [move]this[/move] just go up above the smileys and and look beside the word standard that is in  a drop down box. Then beside it will be something that looks like paper, go down and you will see a capital m with arrows and click  on it and write the word(s) you want between the [move]s.

    That's why I use an artificial tree. :) And they're much easier to take care of...and you only pay for them once...

    I have Rack, Benny, Toodles, Curly, Nibs, Slightly, Rocky, and Spaz.

    How big is your tank? I just got a 55 gallon and I'm trying to figure out the maximum number of crabs (mediums) that I can comfortably fit in my tank.

    You can have 18 mediums in a 55 gallon.  This allows them growing room.  If you have a few more, say around 21, it's not too big of a problem right now.  You do want to make a second level though so they have plenty of options.
    Mine love the moss pits that I have.  :flower:

    How big is a med. size hermit crab? I've never figured that out. All of mine have a 7/8 in opening to 1in. what size are they.
