So Jason... gave me some sand and apparently there was a hermit crab in the sand 0_0. What do I do, I mean he is moving and stuff I think my tank is cycled but I was waiting on the safe side to like... put stuff in
Yes, the hermits can just feed of crap, the copepod and amphipods even more I fed my tank about 5 tiny pellets a week for 5 months and I had a pest of copepods 25 hermits, 20 nasarius and 1 peppermint shrimp. (obviously no fish in the tank)
I waited a few more days and went ahead and added a small hermit crab, snail, and a Coral Banded Shrimp (yes, I know not really wise because he can eat the hermit and the snail, but I figured if he's well fed... it's okay?).
Also... I found out what JLAudio gave me, it's a Conch (my bad I didn't know what it was)
Is it normal that the coral banded shrimp just hangs out in the rocks?
Here are some pictures. Will do a water change in 2 days.
Im sorry about your loss. Maybe you can get a plastic mesh to put in front of the intake until your fish grow larger or wiser. If you get anoyed with the chaeto algae in your main display you can set up a chaeto chamber in the back of your aquarium with a home depot light.
