Red face Hermit crabs

Okay, this is hypothetical... My brother wants one of two things, a male super delta male betta, or a hermit crab. when he came to ask me if it would work, i fancy myself a fish expert, i took the diplomatic route and said to see into getting both. first off, can he? second off, if so, what does he have to do to keep the peace. he told me his fears of torn fins so i told him that there is always the trusty rubber band on "the claw" trick. i thank you in advance.

I am the Emeraldmaster, hear me roar... *meow*

And after I roar at you, may I entice you to look at me fishies! http://www.bettafish.com/members/emeraldmaster-albums.html

It is a bad idea to keep them together aquitic hermit crabs are saltwater the rest need a good amount of land if your asking which one to get Bettas I am pretty sure live longer are easier to care for hermit crabs need humidity and a larger enclosure.

your typical hermit cran you see in stores are land crabs they will drown in water, but they do need moist environments, and yes like choc said the other crabs are marine crabs. he might find land hermit crabs more fun. they are social so you can get at least 2 or maybe 3 a basic 10 gallon tank does nicely for them.

I would get a Betta in a 10 gallon it is less work and you can even add friends or you can get a 10 gallon and add only Thai Micro Crabs not real crabs there small and freshwater fully aquatic.

yep, most hermits arent aquatic, and even if they were, they are not compatible.

make sure to give him the proper care of bettas!


why would you rubber band the poor hermits claw? How horrible!

Thats like rubber-banding your arm to your face....how horrible...
