that is very easily handled by providing empty shells of various sizes. I added about 50 long time ago and haven't had any issues of fighting over shells since. when I first added the shells I watched one crab change shells over 30 times before he settled on one, the one it had originally...LOL
emerald crabs will munch on algae more than hermits do, but hermits are great for cleaning up food.
chocolate chip stars will also eat the algae and bacterial film on the walls of the tank.
but by far the best clean-up crew addition's are a mag float cleaner, toothbrush and elbow grease....LOL
