Just like us, Hermit Crabs also feel the cold. It is important to maintain a stable temperature environment for your Hermit crab. In a climate like that of most areas of Australia, additional heating is needed in the cooler months to keep your Hermit crab happy and healthy. The ideal heating for a small hermit crab tank or bowl is the Hermit Crab Heater Pad. It is a heating mat that goes under the bowl to heat the tank or bowl to a suitable temperature. Installation is very quick and easy simply place the Hermit Crab Heater Pad under the tank and turn the power on.
Do not use the Hermit Crab Heater Pad if there is any damage to the plastic pad and do not under any circumstances use under water.
The Aquatopia Hermit Crab Starter Kit has a convenient cavity under the tank to fit this heating mat perfectly.
