When it comes to the health of pet hermit crabs, many pet parents take hermit crab care seriously and provide their hermit crabs with the food, salt water and sand needed that is necessary for sustaining comfortable living conditions. As feeding and watering your pet hermit crab on a daily basis is an important part of hermit crab care, maintaining the cleanliness and safety of his hermit crab habitat, sand and water is just as important. As uneaten hermit crab food, along with uneaten fruits and vegetables can lead to bacterial growth, which can be harmful to your pet hermit crab, it is imperative that all uneaten food is removed for your hermit crab habitat prior to it decaying or spoiling. Furthermore, the décor and food and water dishes within your pet crab’s habitat must cleaned on a regular basis, while the sand must be kept clean as well. Fortunately, there is a special sand scoop for terrariums and crab habitats that makes the removal of pet waste, food and other debris simple. Promote the health and well-being of your fun-loving hermit crabs with proper tank maintenance and excellent hermit crab care.
