Hermit Crabs

So our little hermit crab Triple H went through the molting process and he survived!!! YEAH
In the past when one of our hermit crabs started shedding its exo-skeleton it did not make it. This time I believe the conditions were just right and we had success. My children were very happy their little friend is still with them. For the first few days he just kind of stayed still in his shell with the exo-skeleton totally removed from him. Then all the sudden he just kind of came out a little bit and started eating the exo-skeleton. He was like a light orange color and not moving around much but now a few days later he is starting to become more of his usual greyish brown color. I am so happy that we were able to create a peaceful enviornment for Triple H to molt..
My youngest daughters birthday is coming up and the plan is to get a bigger crabitat so she can get Triple H some friends. Wonder what she will name them? Probably more westlers I'm pretty sure
