(copy and paste the links on your adress bar)

remember, the little plasitc "critter keepers" ARE NOT OK for anything really, not even hermit crabs.
no matter what anyways says they well long live long in one of them ATLEAST a 10gal tanks
we have ours in a 55gal if that tells ya anything. give them things to climb on. chew on. and lots of shells for molting.

dont get one you have to get a group and 2 isnt a group. 2 is a pair. otherwise they get lonely. also feed them hermit crab food, celery, coconut shavings, papaya, cereal, bannana, and other stuff. they arent hard to take care of at all.

Actually if you want long living hermies, they need much care. Humidity and temperature is always a must. Larger the tat the better. I recommend atleast 6 of each species. Do your research on molts, they need to be under, isolated if possible, they need to eat their exo for nutrition etc. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
