Description

Blue Leg Hermit (Clibanarius Tricolor)

Excellent algae, detritus, and cyanobacteria eaters.

These colorful hermits will scuttle about your tank aerating the sand while cleaning up debris. It is very important to have empty small shells available for them to move into as they molt and grow.

While reef safe, they are not snail safe, and are especially attracted to Cerith shells…just another reason to have plenty of extra shells in the tank.

Easy keepers, under 1”, omnivore/carnivore, 2 yr life span, blue/black/orange
