Pet hermit crabs are a very unique choice as pets. They are not very active, and usually, will spend their day in their comfort zones―their shells. However, do remember that these are very delicate creatures and need to be looked after, just like any other pet. Their enclosure or tank should simulate their natural habitat. As a pet, they are harmless and can make a good pet for children. They require very little in terms of space and food. They're omnivorous, so you have lot of options for them to feed.
While naming, you can use the ocean and its coastal environment as inspiration. For example, a pet male hermit crab can be named 'Blue' or 'Palm', while the female can be named 'Coral', 'Shelly', or 'Pearl'.
