I'm currently on vacation with family and my niece found 3 Saltwater hermit crabs. She wants to keep them, so how do you care for them, diet, etc?

Could you get a pic? Just so we know what we're looking at. And where did you find them?

And you'll need to do at least a test of the temp, ph and salinity of the beach where you found them to match in a tank; they are wild after all

I'll get a pic as soon as I can. I don't have a test kit with me, so I'm not sure about parameters. Temp changes by time. They were found in Panama City Beach, FL
