The Giant Red Hairy Hermit Crab prefers an aquarium with large amounts of stable rock work and dim light. The Hermit Crab is aggressive and makes a poor candidate for a reef or peaceful fish aquarium.

It will eat fish, snails, and worms, but also detritus and some algae. As it grows, it will need larger shells, therefore multiple sizes of gastropod shells should be available to it. If there is insufficient algae to eat, dried seaweed should be provided along with chopped prawn, cockle, mussel, worms, fish and other meaty foods.

Minimum Aquarium Size

300 L

Max Size
