Same here. I find they are the least likely to prey on snails and are very "light footed" around corals...

Cheers

theres 2 schools out there. Ones that like hermits and ones that hate em. Some hermits will kill your snails and i really dont like them myself. A few astrea and nassarius snails and thats about all you need to keep a tank clean.
