electric blue hermit

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Had this electric blue hermit crab in my old 55 gallon tank. He's getting pretty big (4" shell) and I'm wondering if he's going to kill other tankmates now that he's in a 10g nano. I really like him, and I've never seen him kill a snail or fish, but the lfs told me he is likely to do so in...

    <--Nick We have a green hair algae problem in our seahorse tank. Last weekend, we went on all the boards looking for a solution that is safe for our horses... We found "Halloween Hermits" (AKA Ciliopagurus strigatus) to have an appitite for the algea we had, and they were small enough to...

    Does anyone know if any of the lfs in jax have or will have any banded/blackfooted trochus, zebra hermits, electric blue hermits, or super tonga nassarius snails? I may be looking to pick up a few of each on my trip to jax for the meeting.

    Hey gang, I'm planning to move out of the area (hopefully to LA:wavey:) sometime soon, so I need to start thinking about selling my tank. I have a Finnex 30 Gallon tank. This tank has a back area with a protein skimmer and a fuge. I have 40 pounds of live sand, with about 3 inches of sand in...

    Since I was a small child, I have always had pets. Whether it was a dog, stray cat, baby squirl, injured bird, lizard, turtle. snake, aquarium, or just about any animal that I could keep. I have also had an aquarium set up constantly since I was 4 years old. Definately not going to share how...

    For a bunch of reasons (some beyond my control), I am buying "cured" live rock at the LFS today. It's been in their tank for a month under halides and looks great. I will be adding it to a new 30 gallon tank that has been running with just saltwater for a week. I think I'll go about 3/4 fiji and...

    If there's any group orders going in the near future for snails/crabs could someone PM me? I don't have access to the member forums any more so I can't really see when things are going on. Thanks.

Now that I think about it, I'm a person that likes to collect things, hell, I have coin, stamp, book, model, cd, movie, bobblehead, and shotglass collections but never actually work on them day to day like...

    I have an electric blue hermit in a 2.5g nano. Would there be any reason that it would loose a claw? Other than coral, his tank mate is a snail. He hasn't moved from the same spot in 2 days. Should I move him into a different tank? I had an ammonia spike from a dead snail. I am doing water...
