Re: Tank Temperature

I also have this problem, and my current solution works relatively low-risk, but if my house burns down, it's my fault XD I currently have a heating lamp along with a tank heater (which I don't know why isn't working well enough), but I've been told that with the lamp, humidity becomes an issue.

Re: Ride Home

Thank you all so much! This has been incredibly helpful to me, and I am now proud owner of two happy hermit crabs in a (more or less) stable environment!

Re: Tank humidifier/heater

good news: tank humidity is perfect right now, and it seems to stay good as time goes on.
bad news: tank heat could be better. Current heat is about ~69 degrees.

It's 3 am and I have my little tank heater light on XD

Re: Ride Home

Thank you!
Last question, I read somewhere that hermit crabs really enjoy apples. In your experience, can you guys confirm this? :D

Ride Home

Today I am getting hermit crabs! What should I do on the way home from the store? I assume they will be jumpy? I do not drive so I will be holding them in their carrier. Should I bring snacks for them? What should I feed them? Should I hold them?
Help???
