  1. Can anyone tell me what the hell this is on my hermit?! I just spotted it .
  2. Hi, recently bought a hermit crab for my tank (no corals, build journal yet to be posted). It was in the non-reef safe tank of the lfs, but I have some doubts. Mainly because it was listed as a hairy hermit and there’s no resemblance to hairy hermit crabs. Instead he looks like a large electric blue with orange striped legs instead of blue and blue eye stalks. His claws are symmetrical. A quick pass on google search showed he might be from Hawaii and he was in the Calcinus sp. genus. He’s in a large nassarius shell, so he’s definitely not a dwarf hermit. Anyone know what species he is or have any experience with this type of hermit? I’m not planning on getting rid of him if he is not reef safe, but curious to know if I just paid $15 for a hermit that should’ve been $4 😛.

    Hermit crab shell info?

    Hey guys, I have a few questions about hermit crabs. Please don’t judge me, I just need information please. I have 4 hermit crabs, I’ve had them for around 2-3 weeks and I love them so much. I’ve been reading information about them and I’ve come across some pages that say they need to molt into new shells, and that the tank keeper needs to buy shells and put them inside the tank. Can somebody give me some more information on this? If I do need to buy some shells, can anyone tell me a good place to buy them, and how many I should buy for 4 hermit crabs? 2 of them are pretty large, and 2 of them are much smaller. Thanks in advance.
  4. Looking for a good chunk of coral that's littered with these guys to place in my 20 gallon. Will need to know what you feed them, the coloration on them, in which coral they're residing in, and how long they've been in your system (Pictures are highly appreciated). Local is preferred, shipping isn't out of the question.

    Can't find my Chromis

    Hello, I noticed today that one of my chromis is missing. I checked all the caves and even took the rocks out and I could not find him. I looked at the floor, back of the cabinet and the back of the JBJ nano. its not there. I'm afraid that it dies and was consumed by my cleaners. My question is do you think 6 hermit crabs, 1 damsel, 2 clowns, 1 fire shrimp and 3 turbo snails can devour a small fish within 24 hrs?
