    I'll Go as west as Slidell, LA, North as Hattisburg, MS and east as Gulfport MS... MAY come to Mobile AL...

    What Species do I want?

    Any Species up for adoption... Even if it's a couple of PPs parents bought for their kids on a whim and don't want anymore...

    I can take maybe three more...

    Why is Elmo for adoption? Both of you should post on craigslist. There are lots of people willing to give homes and need homes.

    Oh, Elmo's up for adoption because I just can't care for him anymore. . . It's enough work taking care of 3 hermies, let alone 4. . . But I will make sure he finds a good and loving new family to care for him!!! I'll post it on craigslist, thanks!!!

    I'm still afraid I don't understand. If your hermies are all in a tank, they eat the same food and drink out of the same water bowls, how can you not take care of one of them? Adding one hermie to an already existing tank doesn't really add much to the care needs. You'll need to offer more food, but depending on its size, you may not even need to do that. A tiny crab won't eat a noticeable amount of food beyond what's already being eaten, although if you add a jumbo and all you have are tiny crabs, that will change the amount.

    What exactly is the problem that makes you not able to care for him?

    Nothing's wrong with Elmo. . . But thank you all for the advice, I suppose I will keep Elmo. . . I'm going to the pet store today to get some coconut treats, and some freeze-dried shrimp. . . Possibly some more shells. . .
