Hermit Crab Names
Hermit crabs can make a great pet. They are a much lower maintenance pet than a cat or dog, and unlike fish you can interact with them and don't need to worry about things such as the pH level in the water. Once the initial setup is out of the way, they're cheap to look after too!
Taking care of your new hermit crab
What do hermit crabs need?
Warmth - hermit crabs are sensitive to the cold.
Fresh water - for drinking. This should be changed regularly.
Salt water- for cleaning them. To clean them, put them in a very small amount of salt water. They should be able to climb out, which they will do almost immediately.
