Also known simply as the Blue Leg Hermit Crab in a black shell is a colorful and reef-safe addition. Named after its bright and colorful red-banded blue legs, the Blue Leg Hermit Crab has claws of equal size and makes its home in abandoned snail shells. The Blue Leg Hermit Crab may attack snails to obtain the shell for its home or eat the snails for food when looking for a new home or if food supplies are insufficient. Providing extra shells for your hermits is always advised. 

Supplement the diet of the Blue Leg Hermit Crab with dried seaweed if insufficient algae are present. Though an efficient scavenger, and due to its small size, the Dwarf Blue Leg Hermit Crabs should be kept in groups for larger aquarium systems. Providing extra shells for your hermits is always advised.
