my name is Ryan wells I’m the owner of a
00:01
local fish store located in Lindon Utah
00:03
called reef runners taking care of a
00:06
hermit crab in salt water is virtually
00:09
foolproof the only thing you have to
00:11
make sure of is that you have fish or
00:13
other types of animals that you feed so
00:15
there is adequate food in there for your
00:16
hermit crabs to scavenge off of these
00:18
are scavengers and so we’ll often just
00:20
feed off of extra fish food fish waste
00:23
or any other kind of organic compound
00:25
breaking down do keep in mind however
00:27
that if there is not enough food they
00:29
will tend to prey on other snails and
00:31
other small forms of life even each
00:33
other so it is important that there is
00:35
enough food in there for them to
00:36
scavenge off of they relatively are very
00:39
small there are some larger species of
00:41
hermit crabs in saltwater tanks but are
00:44
not considered reef safe so if you have
00:46
a fish the only system you can get some
00:47
of these larger hermit crabs that make
00:50
excellent cleaners for a fish and only
