    I just bought a hermit crab for my saltwater aquarium, but the pet store has no idea what kind it is, and I'm afraid it's going to hurt my snails/other hermit crabs/shrimp/goby. Please help me identify the crab and help me figure out if it's safe.

    Crab Description:

    About the size of a penny/nickel.
    Reddish coloring.
    Large pincer that is white-tipped.
    White-tipped legs.
    Not hairy.
    No spots.

    Maybe try a fishie forum??? I think some other land hermit crab forums do have salt water section but I don't think we know to much about salt water hermit crabs. I'd be happy to try to identify it but there are around 800 species of hermit crabs and 12 are land or semi land so You have 788 to chose from...:confused:

    Just Google Marine Hermit Crabs, and there will be a lot to choose from on there along with marine forums. Good luck. :)
