    Comments: New owner as of this month. Bought a small tank, headed off to get hermit crabs. Found out all the things I needed and then I needed to scramble to set up more correctly once I learned. I started off with a tank, a couple small packs of hermit sand and small water dishes.
    Now I want my lil guys to have space and be comfortable. I am having a new tank made for them, which will be larger and have much more to do. Also the larger tank, I can create larger pools for them and such.
