Hermies need a new home Twin Cities, Minnesota

Post by Jellybean! » Fri Nov 01, 2019 7:33 pm

Hello! I’m a long time hermit keeper, but have started a new job that keeps me VERY busy and I feel like my hermits could have a better owner than me who could give them better care. I love them dearly and hope that you will care for them in all their needs.

I have 15 purple pinchers that range in size from small to extra large. The oldest one I’ve had for ten and a half years now. Most are around that age, although I did add two small ones last August. There is only one extra large one. The rest are medium/large sized. They are all healthy. I do not have any mites.

If you adopt them, I would be willing to give everything to you. I have maybe 50-75 turbo shells in all different sizes. Lots of fake plants and food. There is also many coconuts to hide in, bridges to climb, and shower caddies to climb. I have two deep Tupperware containers for pools and a used 5gallon bucket full of InstantOcean to make saltwater with. I also have a heater that fits their 55 gallon (from that Bean website.. can’t remember the name) and bubblers for their pools.

I’m a little worried about the molters and how to get them to you. I don’t want to dig them up, so I hope it’s possible that maybe you could get my hermies over time if you live close by. If not, then that might have to be what I do.

The hermits are very healthy, I just don’t have the passion/time for them anymore. I love them dearly as pets and will only give them to a great home. If you’d like to see pictures of them they have an Instagram page: @jellyhermies

Thank you.

I could take some of them in. I have a 225 gallon planted bioactive tank and have been keeping hermit crabs for ten years.

Hi, I would be interested in taking them. I am an Animal Science teacher and I have 1 crab that was gifted to me by a student over a year ago. So I am in the process of finding him some friends and expanding to a 55 gallon tank. I want to avoid the pet stores not sure where to find hermies until I found HCA. I am some what of a newbie, but I love to research and ask a lot of questions. My students are 7th-12th grade and this is part of their daily class work is researching habitats and understanding care of a variety of species! Currently my classroom houses 3 bearded dragons, 2 geckos, 3 red/black walking frogs, a russian tortoise, a map turtle, a Cumberland slider turtle, 2 dogs, a very obese cat that is on a diet, a water dragon,1 hermit crab, a bunny, and fish! So daily care is mandatory and everyone has a special student researched diet! I can guarantee a great home and an awesome chance to educate kids on hermit crabs!

Do you have a picture of your hermit crab tank? I'm interested in what it would look like in a school setting. Don't you ever want to sneak back to work in the middle of the night to watch what the crabs are up to? Image
