Mexican Red Leg Hermits are a fantastic addition to any reef or fish only tank as this crab will happily devour detritus, left over food, algae and cyanobacteria. The red leg hermit crab has an easy going temperament as long as it has ample food and larger shells to grow into. Providing grow up shells will aid in preventing snail genocide.

Cool Crabs
All alive , All well, as soon as they went into the tank they had to meet and greet everyone and then right to sifting sand, very energetic and fun to watch.
Kyle of Eberly Hills, FL
Good buy
We got a whole cleanup crew and these guys can sure eat (and that's a good thing). They do a great job keeping the tank clean of food debris making it much easier on the filter system.

Red Leg Hermit Crabs
These crabs do an incredible job of removing algae from live rock and sand. They are a great addition to any reef tank. They keep to themselves and won't bother corals. Thanks!
