So I was given 3 hermit crabs purple pinchers. They came in a 10 gallon. One has died today, the others I see in the coconut huts. I’m going to wait a few weeks and if the two survive the quarantine I might add them to a new 55. Then I hope to bring home but quarantine 1-2 more before ultimately adding them as friends for them. If 3-4 good in a 55?

thoughts on hamster wheels?
Moss pits needed?
Where how do you offer the Extra shells? Scattered around the tank or in one spot?

3-4 should be fine in a 55, can't wait till their softball sized :)

Make sure the substrate is at least 6 inches deep, make sure there is a humidifier, pool of salt/fresh water that they can soak themselves in

Looks like I still need a humidifier yet.

is a reptI fogger any good for this purpose or I’d there another specific humidifier that’s better?

They are either molting or, something else. I can only wait and see... could be days, could be weeks... months.
