Last weekend, I got the 60 gallon tank ready for the hermit crabs to move. I waited until they both surfaced and over they went.
Hermie immediately (same day) buried himself and Tiny
has been burying but resurfacing to drink a ton of salt water. I have
to replenish it pretty much every day. I am keeping a watch on them,
checking each day to make sure the humidity and heat are staying at the
recommended levels and making sure there is a fresh supply of food and
both salt and fresh water in their bowls. I hope they are enjoying
their new home. They have a ton of new space to roam. When I see that
they are both active again, I will try to come up with some second level
contraptions they can climb on.
Side Note: Tiny has
changed from her original shell into the green smooth chipped shell.
This seems to be a comfortable shell for the hermits since there is
always someone occupying it at any given time.
Right now I have a coconut fiber wall with a couple of plastic climbing
branches secured together to give them something to climb on.
