After recent debate, I'm curious where most of us stand on having crabs in reef tanks.
I usually keep emeralds and hermits.
1 hermit in my system
I have kept emeralds and hermits for years with no issues.
never tried an emerald though i have been tempted. i fear he would eventually become a meal for my toby or that the toby would make his life miserable....
I like to keep a small number of various dwarf reef hermits- roughly 0.3 - 0.5 for each 1g water.
I've sworn off all true crabs as most become opportunistic as they mature.
Trying to imagine 1/3 of a hermit crab walking around LOL
I think I have one tiny hermit, maybe two. Not really a hermit or crab fan.
