Halloween Hermit Crab
Ordered one of these to add some color, along with a couple of Scarlet legs. They definitely stand out from the others. No problem to find in the tank !

I got a couple of these interesting guys to add a mix to the invert crew. They are really interesting to look at. I would like to get shells painted like skulls and have these guys inhabit them. Overall they are the same as a scarlet but unique coloration.
