Misting your Hermit Crab

Misting Your Hermit Crab

Misting is commonly considered to be unnecessary and potentially stressful by most crabbers. If your tank humidity is at a recommended level and you offer fresh and salt water pools deep enough for your crabs to wade in, there is no benefit in regular misting. If you choose to take your hermit crab out of its tank for playtime or exercise, it is a good idea to mist the gills.
