    Our local petco moved last week and tonight I went in. One of the girls that works there came running over to me all excited saying LOOK LOOK. ALL the new tanks have digital thermastats and humidity thingy. So each tank is programmed to a certain temp and hum. The crabs looked great and so did ALL the other tanks set up.

    Good for yor Petco!
    I think out of all the stores I hear/read about, Petco seems to be the one making the most improvementa with their crabs.

    The Petco in my area is clean and they have alot of good supplies(for every other animal except their hermit crabs),but the animals are in terrible shape.The hermies are crammed into a tank with no protection from light or heat.Plus,their food and water dishes are out of reach of the smallest crabs.Plus their water dishes always have a bunch of funk in them,like they're only cleaned once a month instead of once a day.plus the substrate's like half a centimeter thick,so none of the crabs can burrow.It's so heart-breaking to see the dying crabs.[​IMG] my petco sucks...and is not making any progress with the care of hermit crabs.

    what a shame..I hate it when the employees don't know anything about the animals and the poor things have to suffer because of their mistakes....
