But returning to your own Staghorn hermit – these are ”supposed” to be something between an effective detritivore and you will a good herbivore
Others should be great. Their prominent concern could well be keeping the coral hat match, and you can and this is its not indeed an enthusiastic Acroporid Staghorn, however, significantly more Hydrozoan or Bryozoan in general – much less demanding out of extreme lighting. I would personally only continue the regular feeding plan and all of usually be fine. It appears as though a small crawfish regarding step 1/2 to 3/cuatro inch-long, it’s a white grayish colour having long whiskers and you will claws a comparable size just like the my Mexican red-colored toes hermits, these represent the exact same color as human anatomy that have reddish towards the the tips of one’s claws.
Actually, Really don’t really faith crabs of any type, however these seem to be fairly reef amicable
He is fascinating to look at once i can be figure out which hole he is of the, he could be always rebuilding the fresh slopes in front of his exits, constantly everything you select is an occasional claw or whisker and plenty of little items of pebbles becoming accumulated at the front end of the gaps they are generated. Any idea just what this interested little animal is, or exactly what It’s care requires and reef compatibility would be? Sounds like don’t worry for the moment.
Hermit crab with anemones Hi Folks – fantastic site, I’ve been loitering around here for a couple of months digesting all the info I can – now I have a couple of questions I hope you can help me with. I have a huge hermit crab (around 2′” long) with two anemones on his shell. I have two questions. what type of anemones are these likely to be? They seem extremely hardy – getting buried in sand, squashed between the shell and the aquarium glass, and scraped along the rock whenever the crab crawls into one of the caves. I’ve had this combo for 3 months now, and the anemones are looking very healthy and growing at a pretty fast rate. Second question – my crab has changed shells 3 or 4 times since I’ve had him, and he always takes the anemones with him, I’ve never seen this happen but I’d love to know how this occurs. Does the crab move them over to the new shell, or does he just sit there and wait for them to move themselves? Any answers or more information on this curious combination would be greatly appreciated.
That it interesting variety was renown getting adorning its cover having way of living anemones (certain that have Calliactis variety)
Coral hermit I just bought a Staghorn hermit crab. not sure just what to call him. <> He mostly just sits about the tank watching the world go by. I would like to know if I am supposed to provide future homes for him. is he nocturnal? <> (He sits in the cave that belongs to the shrimp. it takes up about 1/4 of my 60 gal.) I have great water quality, and nothing that would bother him as all other hermits are smaller, and the fish are ”peaceful” and small. Any other info on care and behavior would be great, as I noticed this crab is missing in your articles. <> thanks a lot <>
