Food/Feeding: OmnivoreNotes: The Polkadot Hermit is a fast moving crab, characterized by its energetic and jerky movements when out and about in the aquarium. It is without a doubt one of the quickest small hermits and quite entertaining when they are out. The Polkadotted Hermit can be aggressive towards their own kind, so keep this in mind when stocking multiples. Like most crabs P. operculatus is an omnivore and will be peaceful provided enough food can be found scavenging. Corals and sessile invertebrates may be on the menu if other foods are in short supply.
