Hermit Crab Killer!!!!

Great I have a Red Leg Hermit crab thats a bully.... I just bought 6 new Turbo Snails yesterday, and yesterday I saw one of my red leg hermits picking on one of them. I moved him to the other side of the Tank before going to bed last night. I woke up this morning and he was toasted completely devoured. Will my red legged hermits eat up all my turbos?

Crabs are a PIA. They're fun to watch but you can't trust the little (moderator edit). Had em , ditched em, never been happier (relatively speaking).

Like just about anything else, some can be good and some can get bad. I have a bunch of red leg, blue leg and scarlet hermits. They don't bother my snails.
