"I may pull it out if they can get trapped. I'll keep an eye out."
The real danger is that they swim in and can't turn around and die. This can then poison the whole tank. There are African cichilds that live in shell but most other fish get trapped.

Ouch. Thanks for the heads up!

Add shells that are smaller then your fish and big enough for your Hermits to play musical shells with. Lots of fun watching them changing shells.

It's a fiddler crab, not a hermit.

The shell I have in there is broken so it's pretty open. I have been reading more though about fiddlers and fish coinciding and I think I'll grab that shell out tonight. I have to arrange something else for Charlie to hide in.
