    Hello peeps! In this thread, you can tell us about your crabbies, or just say some special words for them.
    It's basically a hermit-crab-bio thread.

    Here's an example:
    Shelle's my one and only crab. I got her from a stinky pet store (aren't they all stinky?) along with Hermin, and Crusty.
    The other two died, to my grief, because I was taking even lousier care of them than the stinky pet store. (which maked me a stinky Donny)
    Shelle is a PP, like a lot of U.S. crabs, and loves to dig.
    Her home is a 10g cage with the essentials. I Am planning on replacing my Calci-sand as soon as I get a proper declor bottle.
    She' been hangin' out in her favorite coco-hut for a few days now, and should come out soon. I'd like to thank Shelle for putting up with bad conditions, and being my crabby friend. :hermzpoo: Thanks Shelle!

    I have 3 cute crabs:Elm, Maple, and, RockNroll. I got Maple and RockNroll from a beach store. I rescued Elm from the cruel petstore an hour away from where I live. I used to only have 2 hermlets. That was RockNroll and Willow, who is decaesed, I got them from the same place. Willow was an escape artist! Elm is my jumbo, she/he has pinched me once. The pestore I got her/him from let you hold the crabs, one of the other crabs piched me and I had purple sand in my skin. All of mine are PPs(I think). Maple is very shy. She has been under the EE for 2 weeks now. I miss her!!! RockNroll was my sister's hermie but she only holds him, so I consider him mine. My sister named him. He pinched her. He was found upsidown on the lid one time. He is almost always up. I have them housed in a 10 gallon, speaking of 10 gallon tanks everyone go look at my poll about what size tank you have! I have no other pets so these little guys are the best in my eyes. I do not know if I could live without them. My baby brother loves them too! MY HERMIES ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :thanks:hermidoddles! :eek:mg:YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!! :pinkr2: :flowerpot: :icon_flower: :HCR: :giverose:here you go little hermits!

    I currently have four wonderful hermit crabs named Juliet, Wasabi, Peppermint, and Wintergreen. Peppermint has a case of shell rot.

    RIP: Hermie, Felix, Romeo, Elmo, Smokey, and Egghead.

    The best thing about making a mistake is the lesson you learn in the process.
    I had to learn that way, or as you might call it, the hard way.

    I learned several things:
    You have to have declor water.
    You have to have either play sand or eco earth.
    You have to have salt water.
    You need at least 3inch. of sand in your crabitat.

    And other important lessons. If you want to know what I mean by the hard way,
    my favorite crab, Crusty, died in the sate of molting, because I had ALOT less than 3in. of sand in there. I olso never actually grated the cuttle bone, just shoved it in the food dish.

    Well, do they have anything that provides calcium?
    That's the main goal in getting a cuttle bone.

    I grind it up against a hermit crab dry fruit bottle cap.
    REALLY effective and makes a fine powder!
