mine killed all the crabs that came with my live rock and i sold my cleaners before he got them, my hermits are alive still and so where my snails untill the trigger went in the tank, from what iv read they are arnt piscovores and there main diet in the wild are crustations and that all crustations will become food.

you might want too add some thing else too the diet then just brine shrimp and its advised againt feeding them from your hands as there near sighted and might bite your hand and there bite is hard and infect easily.
