Notes: The Blue Leg Hermit Crabs also known as Tricolor Hermits or Dwarf Blue Legs are tiny powerhouses and used extensively in the marine aquarium hobby for control of nuisance algae including hair algae, diatoms and cyanobacteria.
The Blue Leg Hermit crab is found in the Southern Atlantic, Southern Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. They are often found in the intertidal areas sifting through the sand keeping it aerated.
The Blue Leg Hermit consumes a large variety of foods including scavenging for uneaten food, but also various types of algae and cyanobacteria. These crabs will also happily accept meaty food such as clams, fish, or mussels. Blue Leg Hermit Crabs have been known to attack other Hermit Crabs or Snails for their shells, it is always a good idea if housing any Hermit Crabs to have extra shells so that they are readily available.
The Blue Leg Hermit is not currently being bred in captivity.
