WOW.... they're about half that price around here.

My blue leg hermits a too small to be a menace, but my 3 red leg hermits have killed every asteria snail put in there. Possibly the turbo too, but I'm not sure about him.

He's cool!! He picked a kinda jacked-up conch shell for a home, though. It looks like it has some sharp jagged edges from being broken. I guess it doesn't bother him though it he would move, right? And love cleaner shrimps! So much personality and always out and about.

Oh wow I was thinking of the white claw hermit crab, but the scarlets are about $6.
