Red Leg Hermit Q

How exactly do red leg hermits ... um ... reproduce? The other day I had 2 of them on a rock. One of them was just about out of his shell, on top of the other. Not in an agressive, I want your shell sort of way... more of a I want to cuddle with you type look. It was strange looking to say the least. I didn't feel it was appropriate to take their pictures in the midst of ... well you know!

Well. I should have done a little research first. A short search revealed this:

Seems like I saw what I thought I saw and that the spawning of these guys is not so common in captivity. Pretty cool to have it happening in my tank. Wish I knew which two they were. I'd move them into temporary housing!
