Apparently some new pets are in my near future... From what I can find in my early stages of research on how to keep them alive, Hermit Crab Patch is *the* website for all things hermit crab... Good to know!
(link) How to Clean a Hermit Crab Tank: 13 Steps (with Pictures) - SIMPLE & to the point guide. NOTE: This method ONLY needed if tank has been contaminated. If crabitat / substrate is setup correctly ~ no need to clean / change it out! HINT: compost / recycle substrate into garden. ~ for more great PINs w/good links visit @djohnisee ~ have fun!
