Hmmmm, not sure. I just checked this website (Halloween Hermit Crab - Reef Aquarium) and it says around two inches, but they could be wrong.

Yea the hallowed hermits (Ciliopagurus strigatus) top out around 2 inches which is fairly big for a hermit. The shell, however, could be 4 inches maybe. Not 100% on how they measure hermits with them living in shells and all.

That definitely is property large for a Hermit Crab, my hermits of different species have all been smaller than that for sure. I know Carey has a huge Hermit Crab in her 180g, but I don't remember which kind.

So I have some extraordinarily exciting news! I have been offered a 125g Tank with stand and equipment for FREE! Our good neighbors are moving, unfortunately, and they offered it to me, knowing I love fish. The tank has all the equipment for a reef, as that is what it used to be before they converted it to freshwater. Providing all goes as planned, I should have the tank at some point, likely within this month. Yay!

Not quite sure yet, I know that I want to make it saltwater, not sure if he still has any of his freshwater fish. I do know that I love my Tangs, so I have to have a couple of them. In my last 125g, while I had it, I had a Scopas and Blue Hippo, but I am going to try something different this time. thanks for the comment!
