The popular Orange & Black Hermit Crab is so named because of its attractive color. Its pincers have white or orange bands and its eyestalks are long that are blue in color.
It is small but its left claw is larger than the right claw and it serves as protection against predators. It is best placed in the aquarium when it is 1/4" to 3/4" inches in size.
It is an herbivore and it prefers detritus and red slime algae (cyanobacteria) for food. When food is scarce, it can be fed with dried seaweed.
This crab, like any other hermit crabs, is difficult to breed inside the aquarium.
Like most invertebrates, the Orange and Black Hermit Crab does not do well if there are large swings in water parameters. It also does not tolerate any type of metal traces in the water, therefore, it should never be in contact with any copper medications.
