Maintenance Alert

Hermit crabs do well on dry, coarse sand or coconut fiber substrate with pieces of bark and places to hide and climb (cardboard tubes, large rocks). They should have a shallow dish of fresh water. Temperature should be held above 20 ºC—a low wattage lightbulb makes a convenient heat source. Hermit crabs will eat dry dog food, fresh fruits and leafy green vegetables.
