So glad I found this forum!

also i will tell you what you will need them for. carotene enriched foods keep their color up. calcium you can use especially after they molt along with letting them eat their old exoskeleton, because they lose 99% of their calcium when they molt. and protein you might need also in normal situations...

what to do if power goes out in the winter

my power goes out alot, and since herrmit crabs need a humid environment, i am wondering what i would be able to do to keep the heat tropical, so they wouldn't die. would i bring them to my dad's lab, or is there something easier? i am asking what to do in the winter.

would hermit crabs like poi?

i used to live in hawaii! i was wondering if anybody knew if hermit crabs would like poi. if you don't know what it is, it is taro, a root grown in hawaii, and i think it is isn't very much processed. just look up poi if you don't know, and then once somebody finds out if it okay, please let me.

Plastic 'Rubbermaid' containers as crabitat?

sounds like you did good enough research! and i know all the websites out there will tell you you need dechlorinated water, but if you have a water filterer, then you won't. you still will need a humidity guage, and a heater. Also i agree with crabber85, you need a tank/aquarium.
