Our betta fish are kept for a minimum of 30 days to ensure they do not have any health concerns. During that time they are kept in a heated and filtered 5 or 10-gallon tanks with silk plants and hiding spots. They are fed mainly Bug Bites but I also feed frozen and random pellets throughout the week. After 30 days healthy fish are put up for adoption.
Our hermit crabs are kept for a minimum of 15-30 days to ensure they do not have any health concerns. The length of their quarantine time depends on how they were previously cared for. Most need a chance to molt in a proper environment and are often kept longer than 30 days. We do occasionally get hermit crabs that were well kept and do not need to wait as long. During their stay, they are kept in a tank appropriate for the number of crabs (10-15 gallons each) with at least 8″ of substrate, pools large enough to submerge in, air temps of 82F, and a humidity of 85%. They are fed my homemade dry mix along with fresh food several times a week.
