I wanted to order a clean up crew after my tank settles down a bit. This one seems like a good deal. http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_1...=4&PHPSESSID=3c925b72bc828b73372f90d77071356a
It includes:
5 Scarlet Hermit crabs
5 Blue Leg hermits
10 Turbo/Astrea snails
5 Nassarius Snails
2 Queen Conch

I allready have 4 large Clibanarius vittatus Hermit Crabs. (Thin stripped hermits I think) They are approximately 1.5 inches in length. Just wondering if anyone knows whether or not the existing hermits will eat up all the newcomers or not. Thanks.
They shouldn't bother each other. Just keep extra shells so they don't jack your snails.
Yes. I need to get some other shells. There is one crab that keeps switching his out. I think he has outgrown the ones available. Thanks for the input.
