Bought these on the BOGO deal. Starting looking for food in the substrate as soon as i dropped them in my 46G Bowfront tank. Look great with the white legs and very active. Thnx Reefs2Go.

Bought these on the BOGO deal, and they got right to working cleaning. I didn't find them as attractive as the blue legs, but they are quite large and are constantly cleaning. I will not be ordering again, but not from lack of service or the crabs abiility to do it's job.

White Hermit Crabs
I bought 6 of these guys,5 were kinda small and 1 was huge, after about an hour they all found new shells. I have never seen hermit's move so fast they are awesome, love watching them and I can already tell they are getting bigger. coolest hermits I have by far.

Best little sand cleaner - EVER
I set up a 29G cube about 10 months ago. Everything has been relatively stable but I could never keep the sand bed clean (sugar fine white aragonite). I put these guys in at around 6pm. The next morning my entire sandbed was shiny white. No joke, it looks like brand new sand. I purchased two of the buy-one-get-one deals for a total of four. They put my emerald crabs and blue leg hermits and scarlet reds to shame. Best of all it was only $4 for all four. you must, MUST get some of these for yo...

White Leg Hermits
out of all the hermits i have ever gotten for my reef the runner up to the blue legs would be these guys. they are vary active and go non stop. the are with out a doubt one of the hardest workers in my tank. A must for every reef in my book.

bogo White hermit crab
I am totally happy with what i got, i was a little nervous as the tracking information was rather incomplete, but they arrived today and it appears that one of them molted during the trip, but they look happy healthy and ready to rock and roll

White Leg Hermit Crab
These are fascinating, very active crabs. In my tank, they scavenge uneaten food, dead fish, and algae. Unfortunately, they grow to more than two inches across. At this size, they will be predatory on small crabs and soft corals. They would make a perfect focal animal for a nano tank or a species tank. I would give them a ten but for their large size and risk to small, slow moving tank inhabitants.

White Leg Hermit crabs
I'm in Minnesota, despite it being very cold when they arrived, after acclimation these crabs did very well. The most animated crabs ever. They add alot of action to the tank. I received a variety of sizes which was nice. Some were quite large.

Best Crabs
These are the best crabs i have ever had. they have the most personality out of all the hermit crabs. they are very active how ever they did not last long. Some were dead when they arrived and they only lasted a few days in the tank. I would be willing to try again.
Jozee of Washington State
I LOVE these guys!!
These guys are really a hoot to watch - very active, very fast and busy all the time. They all arrived healthy, hearty and ready to go - they were hard at work within minutes of acclimation.

White Leg Hermit Crabs
Crabs arrived alive and well. Once in the tank they are very active and will scour the tank looking for food. I highly reccomend these crabs for any reef tank!

These guys are great to watch. On a site im a member of they say to watch the around your snails though(they like to snatch them out of there shells). But I think they add a lot of personality to my tank. Thanks Reefs2go

White Leg Hermit Crab Review
These little hermits are AWESOME. I have only ever seen them here at They are so cute and funny! Fearless, they roam around on the sand bed. They may sometimes climb at night, but can always be seen out and about on the sand. They are FAST for crabs, and really a joy to watch!
