these are helpful tips of things not to do with hermit crabs.

1: do NOT let them have any contact with tap water. boil water then let it cool or put tap water in with hermit crab conditioner.

2: do NOT let them have any contact with raw metal. if they have to touch metal use plastic coated metal.

3: they have to have at least 3 shells in the tank with them.

4: use a humidifier in the room they're being kept or spray them with distilled water every other day.

5: the best sand for them is regular play sand.

6: do NOT use coconut chips for their bace. they cannot burrow in it. they need to burrow.

7: you can tell what gender your crab is by holding the shell upside down. If on the FAR back legs there are 3-1 dips than she is a girl. If there are 4 up he is a boy. do not do it right away let the hermit crab get used to its surroundings maybe after a month or two

8: You need to rearrange the tank once or twice a week because the hermit crab can get board with the tank and get depressed (And yes hermit crabs can get depressed.)
