size of the tank? a lil bigger than my fish tank How big is your fish tank?
what water are you useing? hes not an underwater animal but i get watter from sink and mix a lil salt in it. Do not mix salt that we eat in with the water, the salt we eat is toxic to hermit crabs.
are u useing saltwater made for saltwater fish? no This is a MUST you must have 1 bowl of saltwater (with saltwater made for saltwater fish) and one bowl of pure freshwater.
what substrait are u useing? what What bedding are u useing? like sand, soil etc.
what do you feed them? normal hermit food , i only have 1 tho right know silly most hermit crab foods made for hermit crabs are infact toxic for them, its better if you feed them fruits/veggis/meat that you would eat.
It does't matter if you only have one it still needs special care like with any animal and you are the owner so your responsible to give that pet its correct care. People think hermit crabs are easy throw away pets but they are not they can be exspensive and like with any animal have feelings.
Please try and do a few things that i listed above

They need BOTH fresh water (dechlorinated) AND salt water. Table salt is bad, the anti caking agents are toxic, as is aquarium salt as it does not contain true marine mineral amounts.
Hermit crab food really isn't a good idea, you are better feeding a wide range of fresh foods. Hermits love variety.
In the wild hermit crabs travel in huge colonies of up to 100 crabs. This is because it makes it easier for them to find new shells, often they will all start switching shells at once. A lone hermit crab is not a happy animal, the larger the group the better. "2 crabs does not a colony make."
Of course you should have at least a 10 gallon tank for them.

These people are just interested in the well being of your hermit crab. They are not bossing you around. They just want to make sure your crab and you will enjoy a long time together. Were pet lovers.

The whole point of being on a forum is to learn new things and educate people. Everyone is most interested in the well being of the animal, whether it fish or crab or whatever.
If we hear something being done wrong, we are inclined to point it out.
