    Hermit eating Cabage Coral!

    Yes, that's right.. I caught him re-handed 5 times! I threw him off of the rock, and back up he clumbs. Pretty much cut into pieces one side of a piece.

    I think i may get rid of hermits altogether.. they've eaten some of my snails too!

    What kind of hermit? Some are more aggresive than others, but I'm hermit light for the same reason. I've only 7 blue legged hermits in a 90G.

    I've only got those 7 because they came over from my Nano & have behaved themselves for the year & a half I've had them.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    It's a blue legged. All the others were fine. Might just bring him into the pet store

    If you have a sump, throw him in. There should be plenty for him to eat & nothing to hurt there.

    Cheers!

    I once caught one of my blue leg hermits 'Evicting' one of my snails.
    some of them can be vicious.
    Who says Dogs are the only creature that's happy to see you?

    I've had 10 blue legged in my nano for about 8 months. They never bother any of my snails or corals. Maybe just a baddy. I'm with Krugar ... throw him in the sump. Are you feeding the tank regularly ... maybe he's not getting enough food?
