Scarlet Red Leg Hermit Crab or Scarlet Reef Hermit Crab



Scarlet Red Leg Hermit (Paguristes Cadenati) is also known as Scarlet Reef Hermit Crab, Red Legged Hermit (Paguristes Cadenati) is very hardy and requires minimal care in a well-established system. More importantly, however, these small hermit crabs have a voracious appetite for detritus and algae. In fact, they are particularly fond of nuisance algae of the filamentous, hair, and slime varieties, as well as cyanobacteria.

Unlike some hermit crabs, most Scarlet Red Leg Hermit Crab or Scarlet Reef Hermit Crab are very peaceful towards their tank-mates. The Scarlet Red Leg Hermit Crab is named for its bright red legs, which are contrasted by their yellow face.

Like other hermit crabs, an ample supply of empty shells should be available for the Scarlet Reef Hermit Crab to move into as they molt and grow. As with all invertebrates, they do not tolerate copper-based medications and extreme fluctuations in water parameters.
