by RatLover1234 Cute but several cons
This hermit crab kit is very cute. However, it is tiny. I bought Harvey (my hermit crab) a hiding house and with that plus the other supplies that came with the kit, it's pretty cramped. The bars on the cage are also not good... hermit crabs come from tropical, humidity climates and you're supposed to mist them (I think humidity needs to be at 70% at all times from what I've read), and with the bars/so many openings, it's hard and almost impossible to keep that humidity inside.

We bought this for my brothers hermit crabs at first because we were not very educated on the kind of homes needed for small. Buy a terrarium and glass cover with substrate

Rated 3 out of 5 by awesomeman123 this product is not the best
this kit is not the best for hermit crabs they don't like the sand and sand is not good because it doesn't hold burrows good and it does not keep humidity very well. the best substrait is eco earth so if you get this kit with eco earth and something to climb and a food and water dish with sea sponge it would work very well. but the maximum amount of crabs you should put in there is 1-2 crabs if you put 3 crabs you will crowd them which they do not like.

Rated 1 out of 5 by krazycrestedlady terrible "house" for crabs
this is NOT a suitable cage for hermit crabs. they require deep substrate to burrow and molt in which you cannot provide in this cage. it holds no humidity, which crabs need to breathe and for basic life functions.
this cage is way too small, as crabs in the wild walk up to 50 miles a day looking for food and exploring. this is not a good beginer kit, as it gives the new pet owner the wrong idea about how to properly house and care for this type of animal.
