Red or Blue?

Im deciding on which ones to get red legged or blue legged hermit crabs? I've heard that red ones are more peaceful but also heard that red ones attack anemones. Help please. thanks

I have both in my tank, I havnt noticed either one being really aggressive. However that being said,,, I have found a few carcasses in the tank. Not sure if they molt and that is what I am seeing, but I will see it any way.

I also have a Purple Condylictus that seems to be pretty uneffected. I have never seen either hermit any where the Condy.

I have both scarlet and blue-legged hermits. None of them bother my BTA or LTA.

I agree, I have both and never had a problem with either being aggressive or messing with my anemones.

I also have both but have seen the blues fight each other so I would say they are a little more aggressive. Never had a problem with them and anemones though.

My scarlets seem to grow a lot faster than the blue ones. Perhaps this is coincidence. Does anyone else notice this trend?
