    Hermit crab whodunnit?

    Houdini, of course!

    I had a barrier up to keep the crabs out of the terra half of the tank, taller than what you see here:



    Obviously, it doesn't work.





    Here's the little devil coming back for more!



    I have something better up, until I can finish cutting a better plexi barrier.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Well at least you know you have crabs so you don't accidentally spread them to your friend's pitcher plants.

    My uncle had a hermit crab for many years in a terrarium near his plants (but not with). It was a good escape artist and quite often you'd see it trucking across the living room.

    Nice set up. The sand looks quite a bit low for the hermit crabs though, do they have a place to dig down and molt? If not you could easily fix it by adding a deep container filled with moist eco earth.
