Hermit Heaven

So I just acquired a new piece of real estate – another awesome upgrade for my babies woots!

Now, that’s what I call muscle!
1

Started off when I realised that I could never actually see my babies unless I stood directly above their crabitat, cause the blue container I was using was opaque.

Asked my brother if he happened to have any spare aquariums lying around (he’s into fishes), and as luck had it, he did!

And WALLA!!!

For size comparison with my toes wtf. I have no idea what the actual size (in gallons) this aquarium is.

All of them crammed in their old hidey-hole. You can spot Jeevan’s butt popping out. The pink thing behind holds their freshwater. The black ashtray (wtf!) holds their saltwater.

The new huge hiding place/climbing post that I bought for RM22 damn expensive boo.

It’s hollow on the inside. Supposed to be for fishes hence the orange fake seaweed.

The coral section.

And that, my friends, is a gorgeous crabitat!

Here they are, all five of them, after their bath.

I guess you can tell that after my initial 3 babies (Chloe, Chester and Rascal who died), I sort of ran out of ideas for good hermit crab names.

Pretty Chloe.

Chester.
12

Mr Kepohchi.
11

A very panicky Vidya who was about to ditch her shell to escape.
15

Macho Jeevan.

Somehow, with time, they seem to have gotten used to me and they aren’t at all scared of popping out of their shells when I’m holding them. Which isn’t really too good for my nerves cause I’m totally afraid that they’re gonna pinch me!

Try and spot who’s who!

Them exploring their new crabitat.

Right now I’m really tempted to buy new babies. Should I?? The larger hermit crabs seem to be more active and aggressive, but I’m not sure how Jeevan will take having a new alpha male crab bossing him around. Chloe sure wasn’t happy when got Jeevan.

If I get 12 I can make a football team! Or maybe I can use them to predict the next World Cup champion/Germany president/etc.

Kookoo.

        But I can’t bare to touch them.
        Feels very “girrlieee”, you know what I mean?
