Dr. Mac's Comments:
These are excellent and very active Algae Mowers and Scavengers!
Pacific Red Leg Hermits are great little reef scavengers. They stay small and are generally peaceful. A perfect alternative to the Caribbean Scarlets or Blue Legs for those hoping to keep a Pacific Origin tank. Like all hermits, they may kill snails if they require a new shell and cannot find one so be sure to provide plenty of extras when stocking these animals.
