General BS forum I guess anything is fair game in here. Just watch the subject matter doesn't get carried away too much.

It's a halloween crab.
Basically the same husbandry requirements as a hermit crab but much cooler in my sons opinion (mine too ).

Wow, he's really cool!!! I guess I had seen them before, but for whatever reason assumed they would be more challenging to care for. Awesome, Steve!

Easy care. That's what I look for when the kids are responsible for the animal. LOL.

Set it up just like you would a hermit crab (it even eats hermit crab food) and you're all set. All my son needs to do is change the water, feed it, and keep the cage clean.

I have read two different views on that so far. Some say that a painted shell is bad for them because they always groom the opening of the shell. Also some people paint the shells and force the hermit in before the paint is dried or paint the shell while the crab is in it. The same site said that they do not like the colorful shells and will leave for ones that is not colored.

Another site said that hermit crabs are attracted to the bright shells and will leave theirs for the new colorful one.

I read this after I purchased a group of painted and non painted hermits. The grooming part is true and we are trying to coax them out to go to non painted shells, but apparently they like the color.
