HOW TO NOT KILL YOUR HERMIT CRAB
1. The habitat- The entire Kritter Keeper is a horrible habitat. It does not hold the needed 80% humidity (which is needed by the hermit crab to breathe through its modified gills) and 80 F temperature. Gauges are needed to monitor these conditions and need to be digital for accuracy. Plus, that space is WAY too small. A 10 gallon tank AT LEAST is needed. A crab kept like this will slowly suffocate.
2. Substrate-  A minimum of 6 inches of moist, sandcastle-consistency substrate is needed for the hermit crab to dig down to molt. Gravel, colored sand, calci sand, etc are NOT suitable substrate. Unbleached playground sand, ecocearth, or a mixture of both is what is needed. A 5:1 ratios of playground sand to eco earth is best.  When a crab digs down NEVER dig him up. If a crab cannot properly molt, it will result in death.
3. Water- Where is the water? A hermit crabs needs declorinated  fresh and saltwater pools (prime and API are good declorinators). They do not ‘drink from a sponge’. Sponges should be thrown away as they harbor bacteria. Salt water needs to be made from marine grade salt such as Instant Ocean.
4. Food- Commercial food pellets are filled with chemicals that are unsafe for crabs. Hermit crabs can eat whole, pesticide-free foods. Unseasoned meats, fresh fruits and veggies, unseasoned cooked eggs, cuttlebone, etc are all examples of foods a hermit crab needs. Plus they like variety- not the same thing everyday.
5.Shells- Painted shells are TOXIC.The paint can chip off and the crab may eat it which can result in fatality. At least 3 natural shells per crab should be offered. Also, knowing which type of shells the species of crab you have helps.
6. Pesticides- NEVER spray any kind of bug spray, air freshener, or chemicals  of any kind near your crabs. If it harms bugs it will also harm your crabs. 
7.Friends- Don’t buy just one. Hermit crabs are social creatures. Keeping them in solitude can stress them out.
