Hey guys! Long video and lots of info!! lol This is a video all about hermit crab care and hermit crab tank setup! I hope this video helps you, and I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for watching and please see all the links below for more information that I couldn’t include in this video! My hermit crab are in a glass tank (20 gallon long) AND I suggest when getting crabs you consider getting getting at least 2 together! just make sure they get along!
**Just to clarify I do not recommend or support the purchasing of hermit crabs, they have been taken from the wild and it breaks my heart. I do not support this. However I have had my crabs almost 9 years and want to teach their care for those who have crabs or have had them for a long time like me.**
THANKS FOR WATCHING!

?QUESTIONS & CONCERNS?
1.) CALCIUM SAND: I usually and have always used this, but am not currently. Some say it is bad, some say it is not. Better to be safe than sorry.
2.) all of the foliage(sticks, plants, ropes, houses) are all hermit crab safe.
4.) all of my shells are boiled
5.) my salt water is bottles and not from the chemical powder that is offered. I feel bottled is safer so the measurements are accurate.
6.) my substrate level is FINE (now 5-6in). I appreciate all comments and advice! But my crabs can hide and molt perfectly. They have recently molted and moved shells since his was filmed and so check my current hermit crab tank video to see the new levels! It grows as my hermits do! 🙂
7.) FOOD and WATER: their food is very diverse. And the meal has never harmed them, and the bottled pellets have never harmed them. They are all about 6 years old. (They are even featured on my old channel when I first got them) I swap up what they get and change it every other day. Some believe in doing it daily but I choose not too. I’ve never had any problems so I will not be changing my routine with them 🙂 their water is dechlorinated,you could also use distilled, I DONT RECOMMEND chemically distilled or dechlorinated with the powders from store. I do not believe those are healthy for fish or crabs.
