How to Clean a Hermit Crab
Hermit crab keepers often disagree about whether bathing is essential and if so, how often to bathe their crab. Current recommendations are once a week, but you may wish to install a bathing area in your hermit crab's habitat so the crab can choose. Hermit crabs need to be bathed regularly so that dirt and debris are removed from their claws. The process of bathing a hermit crab is fairly simple. You just need to set up the bath and then place the hermit crab inside and then the crab will bathe itself from there. Make sure to take safety precautions, like removing chlorine from water prior to the bath. A good bathing schedule will keep your hermit crab healthy and happy.
