Hermit Crabs and Clams


New member
I have some small hermit crabs in my 120G tank (10-15). Will they
bother or eat my deresa clam? I'm getting my first clam this Saturday :)
Normal circumstances would be that they have enough to eat they would have no reason to get aggressive with something like a clam.....

I've only seen starving crabs go at clams....

I'd banned the most aggressive ones in to the sump long before I had clams. Incidentally all red leg hermits are there.
Other hermits, did not bother clams except by accident...
