The White Leg Hermit Crab is a very active crab
that will move around the home aquarium very rapidly scavenging for food. They
voraciously eat algae but will also scavenge for food elsewhere in the
aquarium. The White Leg Hermit is also known to consume Cyanobacteria and does a great job at keeping the sand bed aerated.
While considered to be reef safe it
is advised with caution as it may nip at coral. It may also attack and kill
snails for it shells.
