Hi All. Was going to ask for help in ID-ing this little chap (1st pic) but he turns out to be calcinus morgani. He was already in the reef tank when I got it. Apparently he's been in there about 2 years. He's a busy guy, and AFAIK he hasn't been at all destructive to the soft corals.

As my main objective at the mo is to get the nitrates down I'd like to add a few more hermits as a cleanup crew. A guy on ebay has these at a good price... they are

2nd pic.. un-named but look to be the same (calcinus morgani)
3rd pic.. Halloween
4th pic.. Electric Blue
5th pic.. Orange Coral

Can anybody advise on compatibility / reefsafe / numbers (120 gallon)etc...

Thanks,
Roy

In my tank (88 gallon) I have the following hermits:

Scarlets
Blue Knuckled (you called them Electric Blue)
Halloweens
Blue legged
...and a slew of regular whatever hermits from the fish store grab bag

Plus some snails (Red Fire Snails or whatever they're called) and some other stuff...

I also have another hermit as of yet - NO ONE can identify. I have a picture of it in another thread actually. All black body, legs with red highlights on the claws. HUGE left claw, fast moving, aggressive...
