HELP! Help identifying hermit crab


New Member
i have not long been to my LFS after purchasing some CUC, I asked them if they had any red legged hermit crabs and they said that they did but their LED’s were so blue and dim that I couldn’t actually tell, now I’m home they don’t seem to look very red to me. Any help would be appreciated

There are a few different species of red leg hermits. Some have much brighter red compared to yours. Also lighting in the tank has a big effect on low they look. If your lighting has a lot of blue in it, reds will rend to look washed out.
