Left Hand Zebra Hermit Crab
Left Hand Zebra Hermit
Smaller than most of the other Hermit Crabs and is less likely to harass snails with the exception of possibly Nassarius and Nerite snails. It is found on sandy floor areas surrounding reefs rather than moving about on them. These active creatures spend their time scavenging for food and make excellent partners in algae management. If added in large numbers, they will quickly rid the aquarium of algae and will move on to polyps, and other small animals. Will also steal food from sessile invertebrates.
