Just a data point. Notice only female Alpha was berried on 3/29/18 and noticed on 4/30/18 she was berried again.

For those who are into Dwarf Hermit crabs. Notice how strong the “inhaling/sucking” is with particles going into his mouth from a distance away.

Hi Ann, haven’t heard from you for a while.

I googled it and there are of vendors selling them. Below is one so maybe your local aquarium store might have them?

How is your tank coming along?

They don’t bother each other, only when I feed them and they go after the food. The crabs usually wins but I usually put more so the opae ula have theirs to munch on.

Thank you! They're cute. I'd love to have one in the tank, but I read that they need higher temperatures than Opae Ula. We keep the house cool and I don't want want to use a heater in such a small area. I'm not using using a filter, either.
I'm almost finished gathering my supplies for the second time. I'm going to use a two gallon clear glass storage jar for better mobility. I'm saving the two gallon aquarium for my future aquatics adventure. The hardest part is finding somewhere to place the jar. It's hard to find space.
I love your videos. Water Hermit Crabs are extremely interesting. I use to keep land hermit crabs, but their care is difficult. Opae Ula are the perfect pet.

Got it. What temperature is the house normally? Yeah perfect pet for your storage jar! Also had land hermit crabs before with the hand painted shells but didnt survive long. I remember you used to be a school teacher so let me know when you are ready, I can give you some Opae Ula as a gift.
