2-3 days at a time

Post by Jonesy »

Hi all
New to the forums, Daughter has been asking for some hermit crabs for pets. Problem is I have her every second weekend and I'm happy to look after them while she is not here, but my job involves me to be away from home from 2-3 days at a time. Will they be ok for 2-3 days by themself each time if i set it up right? or is it too long happening all the time.
for example
work week 1 weds - fri
work week 2 mon - weds
work week 3 sun - tues + thurs - fri
Repeat.
Cheers

Unless you have deep water dishes, I'm not sure if that would work. Please say a little about your crabitat set up and I might be able to help you.
My crabs' names are: Angela, Bubbles, Sandy, and Shelldon

I think it should be fine, on the days you're not home just stick with foods thats dried. :) That way, they won't spoil as quickly.

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
