Why do you need a "massive" hermit? Just curious...

Personally, I think smaller is better for hermits. Smaller ones can get in to smaller areas and keep things clean. Smaller ones don't do as much damage as they drag their shell not-so-gently across the coral colony you just bought. Smaller ones have less of a chance of killing your other livestock.

He posted awhile ago and said his fish will eat small crabs. What kind of fish do you have? Do you have an undulated trigger or something equally aggressive? I know a buddy who has one, he just buys crabs and snails to clean. When they get eaten he buys new ones, they are like appetizers for the trigger.
