My first experience with hermit crabs was when I was about seven years old. I was given a purple pincher named Rocky, and a small plastic box with pink sand in it. As I got older with trial and error I slowly recognized the abuse in that kind of care. I thought the only way I could find information about these little creatures was through random google searches. I did finally get a decent tank together but little did I know there was a huge community waiting for me FULL of great information and new ideas. I enjoy now looking through posts seeing the enthusiastic keepers showing their victories across this platform and im always confident in sending new keepers here for information. Thank you for making the crab keeping world a healthier place.
