I will admit that over the years, I have actually lost track of who was who. My crabs are now, simply, collectively called "The Crabs." I love them, just the same.Hermiesguardian wrote: I wish I could put a little mark on a shell when they change to try and keep track.
Welcome aboard! Since you have mentioned looking for a reputable supplier, I would encourage you to keep an eye out here, in the adoptions section, and to maybe put an ad up on Craigslist in order to see if there's someone out there who is looking to rehome the hermit crabs that they already have.

We've got a crab that did exactly the same thing in our previous tank. I was too fascinated watching to get my camera, so good thinking on your part! It was yet more incentive for us to get a taller tank! [emoji38] Hahaha. I try to make every space climbable, which is part of the surprise when they...
Yep. That is a crab climbing glass, with nothing to hold onto for footing but a plastic hinge divider.
