The remainder would be good. Their largest matter could well be staying the fresh coral hat healthy, and and this is it’s just not in fact a keen Acroporid Staghorn, however, significantly more Hydrozoan otherwise Bryozoan in general – way less requiring from serious lighting. I would personally just keep your own regular eating regimen and all of tend to likely be fine. It seems like a small crawfish on 1/2 to 3/cuatro inch-long, it is a white grayish color having enough time whiskers and you can claws a comparable proportions since my personal North american country red-colored leg hermits, these are the exact same colour because the muscles that have yellow with the the guidelines of the claws.

Individually, I do not most trust crabs of any sort, however these seem to be pretty reef friendly

He’s interesting to view whenever i is figure out which gap he is from the, he or she is constantly rebuilding the new mountains in front of their exits, always whatever you pick is an occasional claw or whisker and you can numerous little pieces of gravel becoming accumulated in front of one’s holes he could be made. One idea exactly what that it interested nothing animal is, or just what It’s worry needs and you may reef being compatible will be? Feels like no worries for now.

Hermit crab with anemones Hi Folks – fantastic site, I’ve been loitering around here for a couple of months digesting all the info I can – now I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me with. I have a huge hermit crab (around 2′” long) with two anemones on his shell. I have two questions. what type of anemones are these likely to be? They seem extremely hardy – getting buried in sand, squashed between the shell and the aquarium glass, and scraped along the rock whenever the crab crawls into one of the caves. I’ve had this combo for 3 months now, and the anemones are looking very healthy and growing at a pretty fast rate. Second question – my crab has changed shells 3 or 4 times since I’ve had him, and he always takes the anemones with him, I’ve never seen this happen but I’d love to know how this occurs. Does the crab move them over to the new shell, or does he just sit there and wait for them to move themselves? Any answers or more information on this curious combination would be greatly appreciated.

That it fascinating variety was renown having adorning the shell that have life anemones (certain having Calliactis types)

Coral hermit I just bought a Staghorn hermit crab. not sure just what to call him. <> He mostly just sits about the tank watching the world go by. I would like to know if I am supposed to provide future homes for him. is he nocturnal? <> (He sits in the cave that belongs to the shrimp. it takes up about 1/4 of my 60 gal.) I have great water quality, and nothing that would bother him as all other hermits are smaller, and the fish are “peaceful” and small. Any other info on care and behavior would be great, as I noticed this crab is missing in your articles. <> thanks a lot <>
