  • Description
  • The Neon Orange Reef Hermit Crab, a captivating crustacean from the Paguristes genus, is a popular addition to saltwater aquariums due to its vibrant coloration and beneficial scavenging behavior. This small hermit crab is known for its bright orange legs, often accented with white or black stripes, and a reddish-orange body. Its striking appearance adds a splash of color to any reef tank, while its active scavenging helps maintain a clean and healthy environment. As opportunistic omnivores, these crabs will consume algae, detritus, leftover food, and even some small invertebrates, contributing to the overall cleanliness of the aquarium.

    Neon Orange Reef Hermit Crabs are relatively hardy and adaptable, thriving in a variety of aquarium conditions. However, they do require adequate hiding places and a variety of empty shells in different sizes to accommodate their growth. As they molt and grow, they will shed their old shells and seek out larger ones for protection. It's important to provide them with a diverse selection of shells to choose from, ensuring their continued well-being. With their vibrant colors, active scavenging behavior, and fascinating shell-changing process, Neon Orange Reef Hermit Crabs are a delightful addition to any saltwater aquarium, offering both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits.
