Hermit crabs!


New member
So I just bought some blue legged and red legged hermits for my aquarium. I noticed that one or two of them have barnicales attached to their shells. How do I know if the barnicals are alive or if there may be another critter I'm them?

I have a few on my hermits and they haven't moved or anything so I assume they are dead. But yeah keep an eye out like he said

Nah, Barnacles wont' hurt anything, they are a harmless filter feeder. They usually don't last long in the home tank though.
