I have just started up a 20 gallon reef tank. Im pretty new at this. I bought a Red Legged Hermit crab and I found him up on my rock. He was what I thought cleaning, but it looked like he was picking away at the rock. Should I get ride of him? Please Help Me!

Welcome aboard!! w00000000000000t!!! :)

Fwiw, red legged hermits are in general very well behaved, relatively speaking. But as Geoff said, all hermits are opportunistic.

They will pick at anything they can find to eat but really don't do much if any damage to anything. They can be cool to watch too.
