  • Put sand in the tank. You should put enough sand so that a hermit crab could fully cover itself with it.
Place decorations in the tank, like rocks and miniature logs. Hermit crabs love to hide,so make hiding places. Also do not block the corners of the tank because they love to bury themselves there

  • Get a food bowl and a water bowl. Make sure that the bowls are big enough for them to get right in. Replace their food every day. Hermit crabs like many foods, including rice, grapes, peanut butter, pasta, tortilla chips, apple slices, dead crickets, and pretty much everything.

  • These creatures are not very picky. You can also feed them hermit crab food from the pet store. The pet store food doesn't need to be changed every day but make sure they have nice fresh feeling and looking food to eat.

  • Replace their water every 2 to 3 days with room temperature bottled spring water. You can also put a sponge in their water bowl, so that they will have something to get a drink out of and climb on.Hermit crab cages usually need a heater. But not usually the kinds that you get from the pet store.

  • Give your hermit crab a bath at least once a week. Put it in a bowl of bottled spring water for 15-30 seconds. Then, put it back in it's tank. But this is not mandatory. Play with it every once in a while. Let it roam your desk or table. Make sure it doesn't fall off, or get hurt.

  • Never let your crab be in direct sunlight because their limbs will start to fall off and they will die.

  • Replace the sand 2-3 times a year. Be sure that you need to take care of crabs like any other pet, especially when the cage has defecates in it.
