    Your crabbie needs regular water...dechlorinated or spring....and salt water mix, as in Instant Ocean for salt water fish....not table salt, also dechlorinated. Crabbies love water!!
     
  3. It has to be de-chlorinated. I would suggest that you get a good de-chlorinator without a slime coat. There is a need to use de-chlor in saltwater as well. Good salt mixes include Doc Wellfish and Oceanic. Thanks to Matt for completly re-doing this post so it acually contained a shred of truth. He even did it on his PSP and took him about 20 mins. to do! THANKS!!

    The water HAS to be de-chlorinated!!! Salt water is also needed because of their exoskeleton. Instant Ocean is used for marine aquariums, but you can add it to your hermit crabs water as well. Good luck!!! :toothy12:
