Sweet! They are really cool when they get big!! and he has really nice coloring!!!

My wife had Hermit crabs all growing up So I bought a little guy like that when I got her an aquarium. i think he's something like 1.5 inches.

The coolest thing is the one they have at my LFS they ordered a "large" one and I can guarantee you that it is over 7"..... i don't know where they are going to find a shell for it to move into

I had a hard time finding the shell he is in now and he will need another soon, he's growing out of this one.
What I had to do is find a pet store that sells the "tree hermit crabs". The only ones around that had the bigger shells.
I got him with a group of others a little over a year ago. They were all way smaller than an inch.
