Hermit Crabs...no name :/

I decided to post pics of my hermits when I got them but never got around to do so until now.

I have two hermits (bought from a beach shop:/ cuz I couldn't find them anywhere else) who have not been given an official name.

Does anyone else have any? Share your stories and pics here!!!

What do they eat and do they need a humidifier?

if you can't keep the heat up with a heat pad and keep their tank moist then yes you need a humidifier.

Hey guys, question to those more experienced with hermies. Can they get depressed? Are they more active in habitats they like better?

Good evening sbrit94 and welcome to our forum from a fellow Floridian. I live in Oviedo, FL which is a suburb of Orlando. Don't know what part of the state you are from. Just to let you know that this site deals almost anything about betta fish care.

Petsmart has a lot of hermit crab care kits and anything else you might need.

I too used to have pet hermit crabs when I was younger. I enjoyed them too.
Here is a better web-site to answer all of your questions

Petsmart doesn't take good care of their hermit crabs. They are usually dead.

I have a 20G long tank in my office with 8 hermies, going strong for 3 years now. They're very amusing and low-maintenance office pets once you get their environment parameters settled. I have tank heaters going and the water bowls near the heaters for humidity. They become more active later in the afternoon/evening, but there's usually at least one out at any given time. I have about half a foot of damp-ish sand substrate, so most of their time is spent burrowing. It provides them safety while molting as well.
