And it is pefectly natural for hermit crabs to fight and kill each other for shells, no matter what the specie. This is nature.
I understand this is nature, but I just was upset b/c my blue crab killed a red one. Why should he get a $3 meal when I'm stuck eating 10 cent Ramen noodles? And the blue one wore the red one's shell for a day then went back to his old shell.
By far my blue leg hermits are the best algae eaters. I haven't had any problems with them since I added extra shells in the tank.
P.S. Timbo does your cat watch the fish? My boyfriend's cat is scared of our fishtank.
I think it's too loud for him.
