Hermit Crabs are very cool, and social creatures. In order for them to survive, you have to really simulate their "Natural Habitat."

Step 1: Simple Supplies

Some basic supplies you will need is:
bedding: play sand, Eco earth, Jungle Bedding
Salt Water: Oceanic sea salt mix, Distilled or spring water
Fresh water: bottled spring water, or distilled water
Bowls:You will need three bowls; One for fresh water, one for salt water, and one for food
Heat Source: Light, Under Tank heater
Hiding spot: coconut hut, driftwood pine and ceder is poisonous to hermit crabs!
Humidity: humidifier, or mister
Tank: Ten gallon glass aquarium MINIMUM

I'm not sure what this products directions are, but the above amounts do not make sense. Please make sure to read each package for mixing directions.
If you are just looking for products to make this whole process a lot easier, I would totally check out underwaterislands.com. They have these cool underwater habitats for crabs so you don't have to leave your tanks half filled.

1.5 tsp per cup would be HALF a cup per gallon, not 5 cups per gallon.

can you use sea salt like goumet saslt if it doesnt contain any iodine?
&nbsp;You spelled lead wrong you spelled it led
What about heating? And what is the salt water for?
it says heat. and the salt water helps their exo skeleton during molting. In other words, if you don't have salt water, they will die! <br />
