Hermit Crab Care

Molting hermie! Hurray! - Mommy of Many - 6/23/2005
Don't worry Melissa, Your hermie should be fine while molting. Justleave him be and wait and see! They usually do great if given a good environment. Has your hermie burried under the substrate or does he/she seem to be prefering to molt on top? If he/she is on top are there other hermies in the tank with him? If so you may want to Isolate him/her so that the others do not decide to eat the exo. They really do need the calcium from the exos.
Let us know more about your hermie and keep us updated!
