Hey all,

I know I said I would make this thread a long time ago, but I've been busy with school!! Anyway my terrestial hermits are awesome since you can't make it rain in your Crabatate (crab habate) you have to bathe them about once a week...I have four in an empty aquarium that I got a while back and was wondering what I should add...well I get Kantanshi my friendly little one bathed, Hermies wasn't too bad either, then there was Bubbles (Don't ask my finacee named him!) he took a little bit to come out but he finally came out of his shell and is my most friendly hermit, Then there was the total pain the butt Grumpy (I'll explain why I call him that) He refused to come out of his shell, I tried misting him with water, I even tried to stroke his claw to get his curriousity up and nothing would get him to come out of his already too small shell! As I stroked his claw, I got too close to the opening and he pinched me HARD took me about 20 minutes to get him off my finger!! Towards the end of this whole issue, I called my LFS where I had gotten them and someone told me to pour some salt water on him "Hermit crabs hate that..." Yeah they do hate it infact they hate it so much he grabbed my finger even harder!!! then for no rythm or reason he just let go and remained in his shell don't know why he is so grumpy but he is!!! anyway for those of you who also have hermies feel free to post and tell me any stories you have of them!!

Good job and nice crab.  Try this by using the advanced search options, make sure you don't check any Saltwater boards, they have hermit crabs also. make sure you use your name in the user, comes up first for me
