that is what they're supposed to do for the most part, just eat stuff they find here and there. Mine goes a little proactive and goes for fresh food too

Thanks for the help I will definitely get some hermits. Where would you get extra shells? And also the species of snail I used to have was astrea? I think? The problem with those is that they could not turn themselves over if they fell, so if they fell, they would die. Is there a species that can right itself if it falls?

I got my extra shells from reefcleaners when I ordered my crew.
They are like 8 cents a piece or something silly

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

you can also find them at craft places like Michaels or A.C.Moore. I just boil them and rinse with water only to make sure they are clean.

My lfs tends to just give them out if you ask. Snail death happens and they keep the shells for this reason.

If I remember right, ceriths, margaritas and turbos can all right themselves.

So I got some hermits yesterday, I got 20 dwarf red legged. I think this was too many but I could get 20 for the same price as 10 (which I think is kinda stupid personally haha). Will this be too many? Should I supplement their diet in any way?

20 hermits in 40g is quite a lot. Since the tank is new, there prob isnt very much algae or anything for them to eat. I would sprinkle some fish food down on the sand so they can eat that.

My tanks not "new" its a year old. I have a lot of cyano and they are eating that like crazy. I might just feed kinda messy once a week or so so that they can have something to eat.

sorry, didn't go back up to read . If theres stuff in there for them to eat, I wouldn't try feeding them so much. Let them earn their food by cleaning up for you haha
