> I have a common Hermit Crab (yep, the red hairy leg variety). He (or she?)
He appears to code the fresh new roost
Crabs We purchased an eclipse system 6 from you and stocked it locally. We purchased two crabs (I assume left-handed hermit crabs) who have one large left claw. Both are relatively small and are in the aquarium with 5 fish. My question is, do we have to feed these crabs anything specific, or do they just clean the tank as a food source? Is two crabs too much for a 6 gallon aquarium? The pet store staff was clueless, but the crabs were so cute we couldn’t resist, even without proper care instructions.
Iodine is critical because of it, but is just a beneficial from inside the services non-stop/weeks (the main reason for recommending small per week h2o changes instead of monthly or longer)
Get a Claw! 5/1/03 My hermit crab’s pincher has recently fallen off. You said it was shedding problems. Should it be a concern? What should I do with the pincher? What should I do? Sorry if these questions have already been answered. Bye.
– Crab Parts – Hi gang,
Hermit crabs – algae Dear WWM: If you were to choose 5 species of hermit crab or crabs in general, for routine cleanup of green hair and filamentous algae in my reef tank, which would they be? I intend on having corals and want “reef safe” varieties. I live in Ft. Lauderdale and can collect hermits from the tide pools. Can I use these? If so, what species. blue legged, red legged, etc Thanks, Steve < I would do mainly red leg hermits. Sally Lightfoots are good at eating hair algae also. Cody>
