The Antler Staghorn Hermit (Manucomplanus varians) is a fascinating hermit that has a symbiotic relationship with a Staghorn Hydrocoral (J. mirabilis). The corals have eroded away and overgrown the once shell, now providing a home for the hermit. Due to the weight of the coral, if the hermit is flipped onto its back, it may need assistance to right itself. They feed on algae and detritus, and make for a very unique member of a clean up crew!

A very unique hermit crab. Great addition to my lagoon style specialty sponge & macro algae tank. Just make sure you don’t have any LPS corals that can damage and/or kill the staghorn coral that this crab uses as its home.
