Always loved these hermits. They’re beautiful! And they came in a great size and went straight to work picking at my rockwork and cleaning food bits from my sand, also helping to aerate the top layer of the sand, while sifting through it for food.

The hermit crab arrived and has been doing well. It even survived an accidental nitrate spike.

This is a great Zebra Reef Hermit Crab who showed up healthy and happy. He was shy at first in my quarantine tank but after moving him over to the main tank he has been quite the showman.

An awesome little beautiful Zebra Reef Hermit Crab who peacefully explores my large reef tank's caves. Almost always visible and active.
