Missing crab


Recommended Posts

Hello all!


I am new to Nano-reefing so bare with me if this is a stupid question. I am missing one of my two blue legged hermit crabs. He kept switching shells, and now I don't see him in either of the two he's been using. If he is missing (ei: dead) do I have to worry about removing him, or will the other crab and my Peppermint shrimp take care of it?


Also, what would be a good clean-up crew for a 5 gal minibow?

So far I have about 8 lbs of live rock, live sand, 2 damsels, 2 (or maybe one :( ) blue legged hermit, and a small button coral.


Thanks for any suggestions

Well, if he did die, he was probably already eaten by the other crab and shrimp (hence him missing).


Everyones opinion varies on the clean up crew. Just do a search and you will turn up many results for tanks of all sizes.
