My Hermit Crab :)

My hermit crab. He's known as Hermikey, but is more commonly referred to as Hermie. :) Just thought I would share with you all. :) Have a great night.

It's okay!

Here's what I do to upload photos...

Go to TinyPic.com and click "browse"
Choose the photo you want to upload and click
There's a dropdown menu labeled "Resize" Click that and choose either "website" or "message board" Those are the sizes that show up best on the forum
Click "upload"
Once the file has uploaded, copy the link that starts with [img] and paste it into your forum message

I thought about getting a hermit crab. But, I was put off because I was told they smell. Is this true? Also, what are some other basic care info?

Yes.. They do smell sometimes but only the tank, not the crabs themselves. It's not very strong either, only when you get really close to it. Recently we bought some sort of a moss ball that reduced the smell by a lot. The link below gives tons of good information. Be aware that if they are well cared for they will easily live over ten years and will get quite large. The little guys are high maintenance and need lots of attention. It's also recommended you get more than one because they do get lonely. We have 2 in a 5 gallon terrarium and they're doing pretty good.

Hope this helps. :)
