Red Leg Hermit Crab (Clibanarius sp) Log in for Prices

Red Leg Reef Hermit crabs, Clibanarius sp., are native to the Atlantic reefs found bordering the Americas. This crab is also known as a Dwarf Red and Equal-Handed Hermit Crab. Their diet is limited to algae and uneaten foods. This dietary preference makes it an ideal candidate for the reef aquarium as they will concentrate on eating filamentous algae and cyanobacteria. Hermit Crabs will spend their time climbing across Live Rock and the substrate in search of their next meal.

This species must molt in order to grow. Generally at night, it will leave its shell home, lay on its back, and exit its exoskeleton. A new exoskeleton is excreted and will harden over a period of several hours. The animal is vulnerable at this time and should not be disturbed. Proper iodine levels assist with successful molting.
