    Hey TRT, So I've had my 90g reef tank up and running for about 6 months now. I have a Firefish, 2 clowns and a Blue Damsel, all of which are doing great and eating. The issue is that I've been seeing a lot of empty shells laying around the tank. It looks like snails are just disappearing. I...

    Hoping for some advice. For a year or so now I have been experiencing a loss of various inverts from corals, star fish, snails and sea hares. This confused me as my parameters have always seemed perfectly in check. Recently some of my fish have been disappearing also. In parallel with the...

    Hi All, I am fairly new to this hobby and have just finished cycling a 10g nano. Yesterday I added a peppermint shrimp, emerald crab and a red legged hermit. After acclimating them and putting them in the tank after about 5 hours the emerald crab was on his back and the hermit crab looked...

    Hello everyone, I have a blue spotted puffer/blue dot toby and was wondering if I could keep a blue hermit crab with it? My puffer is about 3" max and he mainly eats mysis shrimp, pellets, nori and I just recently started giving him krill once a week. A LFS told me they eat crabs and clams. He...

    Hello everyone! So I noticed the other day that my two small Kenya trees that were missing.. After looking for about 20 mins I noticed them moving around my tank inbetween some rocks. Upon a closer look I realized that a rogue hermit crab has decided to take up residence in the giant shell that...

    So I've got 5 hermits in my 10 gallon nano. This weekend I put a shell in there and said "ehh what the heck," because I thought it looked cool. Then the very next morning a hermit was in that one. But now there is this other hermit crab that literally cannot be separated from this new-shelled...

    Hi all - when I first bought the CUC for our tank, I got an itsy bitsy scarlet hermit crab. And man-oh-man, has that thing grown. I have now learned that not only does a hermit crab switch shells, but apparently they also molt (not something I ever gave much thought to before, but obviously...

    Okay, well hi there everybody! My name is Kinley and I've never had a crab before. A friend of mine went to Florida and when she came home she brought a TON with her. Without warning, I had 9 on my doorstep. Three of them have then since died, it's only been a few days. I'm going to the pet...

    This morning we found a very strange little creature - a spaghetti worm! And it was eating a piece of clam. I got a video of it. It was so cool to watch! I love the little surprises that pop up in saltwater tanks. :)

    I came home to see one of our large hermit crab outside its shell dead on our large mushroom coral. Is it possible the coral ate it?

    I really am completely stumped as to why these creatures are dying. It seems that every emerald crab, hermit crab, and snail I put into my tank dies. And they aren't being eaten as I find fully intact bodies. I normally would be quick to blame copper but my anemones are thriving (in fact there...

    Is a marine hermit crab-only tank good for a small sized tank? What size is minimum?

    Ok so I'm now 6 weeks into my first marine aquarium - a converted Juwel Visio 180. I have a turbo snail, nas snail, two hermit crabs, 1 clownfish. When I added the clown and nas snail a few weeks back I started hearing clicking from the tank. Generally 1 or two clicks. Initially I thought it...

    Even though you may have a small arsenal of aquarium maintenance tools and all the filtration equipment you could possibly fit in and around your system, there are still going to be areas inside your tank that you cannot reach or get clean enough. Fortunately, there are a bunch of cool little...

    I'm pretty sure they're feather dusters, but I've never seen Aiptasia before so I just want to be sure. Going to keep him out of the tank until I'm 100% :) They behave like feather dusters, and I do have a large feather duster in the tank, although I only got it a couple days ago. It also looks...

    So, I have two electric blue hermit crabs (one large and one small), and four regular black hermit crabs (all the same size). A couple days ago, I noticed a large hermit crab claw that could only be from the large electric blue sitting on the sand about 4 inches from where he was sitting. I...
