Hermits

Has anyone had experience with adopting one from the ICW?

I'm hesitant to do it, fearing an untimely death, but I have a very interested party wanting one to come home after the hunt...

we have kept both,

alden figured out the hard way land hermit crabs do not live in the water and water hermit crabs will not live on land

have kept both at the house.

- water hermit crabs will mess up your aquarium if they are to big.

- land ones, need to keep freshwater and clean food bowl.

both need a few extra shells to move into.

our policy at casa del boldwater is keep for a few day or week then return to the wild.


good luck.
