I have a 30 gal. FOWLR tank with a longnose hawkfish, royal gramma, sixline wrasse and a orange spot prawn goby. I'm deciding between a few Blue Legged Hermit Crabs or a Tiger Sand Conch. Will 2 Hermit Crabs get along with a Tiger Sand Conch? Or do I have to decide between one or the other?
Thanks!

If I supply the crabs with several empty shells to use, will this still be a problem. Also, what if the conch shell is too big for them? I believe Blue Legged Hermit Crabs do not get over 1" big whereas the Tiger Sand Conch can grow to 2".

Blue legs should leave it alone. I have 5 BLs in my tank and 4 species of snails + all the little hitchhikers and the hermits pay them no mind.
