    I just wanted to know how many people have hermit crabs?
    I know there was a post like this but i just wanted to know what it is like now.

    I have three, one is molting. I just ordered another one.

    I've had them in the past, but all my tanks are vacant now. I had Strawberries, Rugs and one PP.

    I recently updated my "Adopter" status on a few sites, so hopefully some of my tanks will be occupied with a nice size colony again, soon [​IMG]

    I used to have PPs, Es, Rugs, Indos, and Straws.
    Hermit crabs are so under rated in the pet/animal world!
    They're like little turtles, except they could change shells.
