After two wonderful years, my hermit crab died. He was awesome. He molted, got bigger, and changed shells, everything you'd want from a sweet crab. The video above is of Pinchy.
I absolutely recommend hermit crabs as pets, but you need to make a about a $100 investment in supplies. That really isn't very much, but is more than most people are willing to spend on a disposable pet.
You should watch the video about painted hermit crab shells at the end of this post. Its super interesting.
