Shell Dish

How do i know what size shell to get for my hermit crab?

also is it ok to get one that is bigger then what he needs or should i just go up in size as he needs it?? also this is my first hermit crab so if u have any info that would be great i have him in a 10mgallon tank with sand and rocks i have a shell dish for food and water and i have a few plastic trees in there is there anything else i need for him? thank you
according to what i ahve found out he is a pp crab and it said he didnt need it but other sites say he does so ill put it in there and if he uses it he uses it rather be safe then sorry
also if possible i need some name ideas he has a shiny blue shell and acording to what i found in the internet its a he and hes puple pincher

When you see that he cannot completely hide within his shell, then it's time to get him a new one. Get him one that is larger, but not so large he would be lost in there. It's good to have one in there all the time just so he can change shells at his leisure.

They also love to dig and climb on stuff, so you could add one of those reptile vines or some wood for him to climb on, and make the bedding a little deep on one side so he can dig around. A shed for him to hide under or a PVC pipe is a good idea also, since they are typically noctournal and like to be in the dark. You can also give them fresh veggies to eat occasionally for a little variety in their diet, although it's better to feed them these at night when they are more likely to be active.

Not all breeds of terrestrial hermit crab sold in stores require a dish of salt water. The type sold at Petsmart does not. I would either ask the store where you got it from whether it requires this addition, or do some internet research on your type.
