What is a good humidity level for hermit crabs?

around 70 to 80 percent

Can a hermit crab tank be too humid?

No max for humidity. Only downside is sometimes there is mold growth which will not hurt the crabs. I would also recommend raising your heat to 80.

Is 99% humidity bad for hermit crabs?

No, it's not bad at all. It's much better than having a low humidity. The air cycles out when you open the tank to change out food and stuff, so they won't run out of oxygen or anything (they don't consume enough oxygen for it to hurt if it's humid and the tank isn't opened for a few days, they're tiny).

Is 100 humidity bad for hermit crabs?

There is really no such thing as "too much humidity" for them (they come from the tropics, where it's often 90+ degrees with 90% humidity). However, having constant humidity above 90% in a controlled environment like your crabitat can lead to mold problems. That being said, 80%-90% is the perfect range.

Can hermit crabs die from too much humidity?

The humidity levels for hermit crabs should be kept higher than 70% at all times. Hermit crabs breathe using modified gills rather than lungs, so when their environment is too dry it can cause severe injury, and extended periods of low humidity can even lead to death.

Can hermit crabs walk on carpet?

Avoid letting your crab walk around on carpet or similar surfaces. While it might be tempting to put down your crab outside of his terrarium while you're handling him, you need to be careful about where you put your crab down. Certain surfaces are unsafe for hermit crabs.
