Do they all get along well enough to live in the same tank? I know you mentioned some bullying going on, but that's not life threatening. Could you pretty much keep getting crabs until there isn't any more room for them?

it's definitely possible to overcrowd. there's a rule for 1-2 gallons per crab, but if you give them enough areas to climb and hide you can fit more in a tank, as long as you have enough sand for each of them to bury completely in the sand at the same time it's fine.

the bullying is happening because i have three different species: four purple pinchers, one ecuadorian, and one cavipes. you should always keep them in pairs of species, eventhough i'm not because i haven't had the time/money to search for another e and cavipes. the cavipes is bullying the purple pinchers because they as a species are more agressive than other species, much like the strawberries are more destructive. the es and the pps are the most mellow of the crab species (with the es being more active than the pps)

i could bore you with hermit crab information for hours.

Whenever you say crabs, my first thought is the genital kind, then I get confused as to why you're happy about getting crabs for your birthday
