White spotted hermit crab is also known as the red hermit crab. White spotted crabs have hairy legs with white dots. White spotted crabs use their claws to catch food. These species are not at all reef safe. White spotted crabs attack molluscs and tiny fishes. White spotted crabs also consume algae and cyanobacteria. They are good sand sifters and keep the tank environment clean. They consume all uneaten food, and it is recommended to keep one crab per tank as they have an aggressive disposition. White spotted crabs love lodging inside shells. Therefore as the crab grows, they need bigger shells. It is nocturnal and stays active during the night in search of food. White spotted crabs grow well at an optimum temperature of 72-78 degree Fahrenheit and a pH of 8.1 -8.4. It is advisable to keep a thermometer to monitor regularly the temperature of the tank. The white spotted hermit crabs are nocturnal and love to do their activities at night. Setting up a mangrove root or drift would be perfect for the crabs to climb. The white spotted hermit crabs can be fed with shredded chopped coconut pieces and corn flakes. White spotted crabs prefer living in high humidity. A small heater can be provided. A humidity gauge and thermometer can be mounted. Hooded crabs love to dwell in warm conditions. The water should be changed every month. The fiddler crabs can be fed twice or thrice a day. Feeding more than that can foul the water in the aquarium. The white spotted hermit crabs must not be disturbed during their molting process as they are more vulnerable at this time.
