Hermit crab babies

Ok I have newly hatched hermit crabs that I just woke up to. I have like 4 hermit crabs in a little tiny 1.5 gallon in my bed room. They were born in that. Does anyone know how to raise them? I have very very tiny shells for them already.

I would believe the same way you take care of bigger ones. I'm no expert though.

I take it you don't have fish in there? If you do they might be dinner! If not your doing good by providing them shelter. As for feeding, they scavenge even at that young age

Great info! No fish in the tank. And they are really tiny. They are going towards the top. And I am crushing up tiny flakes for them.

Try shrimp or something real? If you don't have anything, you prob have a can of tuna ( in water not OIL) use that, fish love it too!

Feeding fresh foods and a variety is really good for the fish. Several threads here on making your own food.
