amusing hermit crab

This picture was just a trick of the crabs movements, but it really looks like he is saying "Oh Nooooo!" in true Mr. Bill fashion. The chocolate chip starfish did not bother him (was probably too full of shrimp) lol

thanks all..
I am really enjoying the crab. It likes to change its shell 2-3 times a day (hermit butts are really ugly!) and is a very active 'lil guy..

Definitely make sure you have plenty of larger shells for him to move into.

If I have larger snails won't a hermit just take out one of them???
Or should I provide empty shells.

I prefer to give my snails a good chance. I get bigger shells. You can find them in a craft store.

Boil the empty shells from the craft store for 10 minutes and then cool before adding them to the tank
