Keeping hermit crabs warm is an important part of their basic care. Because they are tropical creatures, they need temperatures above 75 degrees Fahrenheit, but they shouldn't be allowed to bake in the sun, either. If you're committed to keeping your cute crustacean healthy and happy, it's worth investing in a quality thermometer. Also, keep an eye on your tank's humidity levels; heating systems can reduce air moisture to unsafe levels and make it difficult for your crab to breathe.
