Gold Tip Hermit
Scientific Name: Clibanarius sp
Reef Compatibility: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 10 gal
Max Size: 1 inch
Food/Feeding: OmnivoreNotes: The Gold Tip Hermit Crab sports bright yellow bands on its green to black legs add a pop of color to this member of your aquarium's reef-safe cleanup crew. Like its Blue Leg and Red Tip cousins, the Dwarf Yellow Tip Hermit Crab is a voracious eater of nuisance algae and cyanobacteria. Plus, its small size allows it to forage and scavenge in the tightest of locations amongst live rock. It is best kept in a reef style aquarium with plentiful algal buildup and other edible matter, however they will accept many other types of food.
