Pet store sales of hermit crabs are typically money-focused alone without any attention to the well-being of the hermit crabs themselves. Painted shells, limited supplies and little care information (most which is wrong anyway) are used to attract children and other unwary customers, yet none of it benefits the hermit crabs in the end. Fortunately, the idea of researching online popped up in your head. Back in 2003, I didn't even think of researching online until I had my first death 11 months later. :(
