Just received some cleaners today, I noticed one of my hermits (about the size of a pea) had little strings hanging off the back off him. Hardly visible to the naked eye. So I took a zoomed on picture of it. To me it looks like aiptasia trying to make it's way into my tank. But I would like some...

I have a couple electric blue hermits and I had a couple questions about them. I've been throwing some dried seaweed in my tank for them cause I read that that's what they like to eat but I haven't seen them touch it yet. I've seen them mostly picking around on my LR and going through my sand...

Just put in a nice piece of rock with among other things about 1.5" mushroom on Saturday..
Woke up this morning an no mushroom, but in his place was a small blue leg hermit. Could he (or something else) have eaten the 'shroom? Or could it have detached a found a better home?
Working on my CUC. Algae is not a problem, but detritus is.
I'd like to add some omnivorous snails. I have 3 blue-legged hermit crabs though & keep reading about hermits killing snails. I've read blue-legs are herbivores. Does this mean they'll leave the snails alone? Or will I need to get...
