I'm wondering how fast hermit crabs grow? How long does it take for them to outgrow the home they have currently occupied.
I guess it would depend on the size of the shell they are in already, but are they fast growers?
I have about 7 blue-legged hermits in my 29 gal
and I found one last night that was dead out of it's shell. I just got them a week ago. It had shells to move into. I put three new bigger shells in the tank, and within an hour, all three became occupied.
Thanks for your help! Do I need to buy new shells every week?!
