Rated 2 out of 5 by Hamsterof4 Good for a travel or temporary housing tank
I bought one of these as a travel tank when I went on vacation a year ago. I would absolutely never keep a hermit crab in one of these, I recommend a ten gallon terrarium or aquarium Its cheaper than buying this plastic tank
I do give 2 stars for the palm tree because my hermit crabs love to climb it
Over all I recommend this as a temporary house or to use when you first purchase your hermit crabs

by bredoub It has the bones of a pretty okay crabitat
This crabitat can actually be pretty alright if you added to it, however the things it came with would not suffice.
I am actually really liking this setup after I modified it a little. The sponge that came with it was far too big for the little cage, so I cut it into fourths and it's working fine. I would not recommend using the shells for water, but if you had the room, it would be pretty alright for food.
If you're looking for a cheap crabitat, this can be a nice one to add to. I bought two 99 cent water dishes (for salt and fresh water), a half cut log hideout, and used some leftover sand from my fishtank (instead of the gravel it came with) to add to it. The shell ended up being too big to fit in it, but that was alright, I found something else to use instead. I doubt most heaters would work with this cage, but I'm using hot lamp next to my cage to keep it up to temperature.
I really like the metal mesh in the back for climbing, however, if you're paranoid about metal and crabs, you can dip the mesh in a non-toxic plastic coating.
***Something to keep in mind:***
I really do not suggest using this cage for larger hermit crabs. I chose the smallest two hermit crabs available at my pet store, and it's working out just fine.
