    Ocean is such a sweetheart. She never pinched me once in her life and was always kind to the other crabs. She was never aggressive, except for her habit of climbing on her friends. Ocean loved to hang out in the coco hut with the other hermies (especially Sherbert), climb, play, and drink and eat. For some reason she never liked to dig. She was so obedient! If you put her on a food dish, she would automatically eat. If you put her in the water bowl, she would drink. Ocean always seemed to be the first to try new foods, and would eat anything. She let me put her on my hand, kiss her, and hand feed her. Once I thought she was dead when she was really surface molting. I put her in a funeral box. Then, a week later, I heard cratching from the box and I discovered my miracle girl had successfully surface molted! I love Ocean so much, and am so thankful for all the wonderful memories and experiences we had together. The day I got her, she climbed out of a box all by herself! She is such an amazing hermie! I bet she is really happy in heaven with Honey and Sky and everybody else. I lvoe your Ocean and I miss you! :(

    I'm terribly sorry to hear that, We both tried to save her.

    I can assure you she is very thankful she had an owner like you, trust me.

    I'm sorry about Ocean. I love that name. Poor little crab. None of mine are very brave or big eaters. Ocean had a great life with you and I know you love her.

    Thank you so much, everybody! I feel really guilty because the first year I had her I hardly knew anything about hermit crabs and she didn't have the proper care at all. :( She didn't even have a hermie friend! She must have been miserable! :( I'm so sorry, Ocean!

    Almost every one started out like that even though I imagine HERMEZ with her first tank, only 700 gallons. It's not you fault. The pet store told you that and you went home with your little carry case. Oh I hate those pet stores. And no one assumes that they are lying. it's not your fault at all Laughs. She probably came from horrible conditions. At least she had someone who loved her, not the pet stores stacking them in piles. You did everything you could for her. I'm sorry.:(
