I have common, blue an red hermits in my tank the all seem fine together, they love to change shells though if one of the red ones gets a big fancy shell you can guarantee the rest will try outdo him! I have a tiny hermit in shell way to big for him to move at the moment lol

How often do hermits change shells? I just picked up 10 blue legs yesterday. Do I have toworry about my Nass snails in there? I have 20 of them, but I think the hermits are smaller a little bigger than the snails though.

My hermits didn't change for a week or so now one or two change once a week maybe but that's cus I have loads of shells I keep swapping so they try all the pretty ones out.

Okay thanks!! I love the blue legged and red legged but wasn't sure if they'd mix. That's funny about they shell swapping!!! I'm gonna put a bunch of extra shells in and see if they do that too.

You need to add meaty foods for those snails or they will starve to death.

Well meaty wise... I feed my anemone small pieces of silversides and there goes my hermit trying to pick it off haha. But uhh frozen marine fusion works great. You can feed fish and hermits. But watch out for over feeding it happens easily.

I meant prepared foods- pellets will work, but I use a chopped fish, shrimp, scallop, and squid recipe.
