i got like 27 hermit carbs in one day and i had one extra shell in the tank when i put them in. in less then 1 hour of them being in the tank that shell that was in the tank was already taken. a few days ago i saw some a hermit crab running around with out his shell. it looks vary odd to see him run around to try to find a new one. i think he did find one but i do not know for sure because i do not recall removing a dead one after that happened.

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.

IMO emerald crabs will not harm hermits. I have 4 emeralds and have never seen or recall evidence of one kiling a hermit or a snail for that matter. The red/blue legged hermits did kill snails and take their shells so now I only 2 hermits left that are too cute to get rid of.

Red leg reef hermits tend not to harass snails. It's always a good idea to have spare shells for them just in case. I had 2 and my stone crabs ate them (they were seen carrying them around, only to find an empty shell near their burrow). I fixed that problem real quick.
