I bought four hermit crabs today!!
Haven't named them yet... So if anyone had suggestions let me know anyways heres some pics...
First I had a climbing thing on the bottom, I went and just got some sand though... So now they are happy... Sorry the pics aren't that great.. I"ll get more when I take them out...

This is their tank now

edit: you can see one of them on the left.. hiding under the cave...
He's the biggest

there's one on the food dish and one on the log

Congrats on the new hermies! Thats a beautiful cage! I don't really have any suggestions for names, I'm not that creative!

I just wanted to pop in and say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE your setup for them!! I get so upset and sad when I see people keeping hermit crabs in plastic Kritter Keepers and whatnot, and I ADORE the way their home looks. They're going to be some very happy crabs!!

What do you feed them? We give ours at work fresh fruits and veggies every day, plus a little bit of commercial hermit crab food on top. We also give them dry cat food, tofu, and popcorn. (The popcorn only occasionally, as a treat)

The more shells to choose from the happier the little crabs....they can be picky about where they want to live! ^_^
