I put some organic peanut butter on the edge of there shell opening and put the shell in the frige until the peanut butter is solid that way if the hermit crab trys to go in when the peanut butter is hard the peanut butter won't stick to them. But this dosn't work for all hermit crabs because some just eat he peanut butter and leave.

Well I found my crab one morning naked, but I just put his old shell near him and he changed :S
Then weeks later he changed into a new shell and went down for a molt.
