blue legged hermit breeding

I was just thinking I have a empty tank that's not being used ( odd for me ) anyways thinking about turning it into a breeding tank for my blhc love watching those guys climb over live rock. Anyways has anybody bred them if so what was ur setup? How do u tell gender? Was thinking of just putting live sand and live rock in for filtering (they are just crabs) so any answers would b cool

Re: blue legged hermit breeding

Evidently they breed rather easily, its keeping them alive after they hatch thats the trick.

Re: blue legged hermit breeding

That is what I have read but was wondering if anyone has advice on how they did it. I already know that I need to get a bunch of lil shells for the fry to hide in

Re: blue legged hermit breeding

That was a cool read. Hate when they just stop posting and you don't know how things ended up.

Re: blue legged hermit breeding

LOL. Sully, whats happening my man!!
Yea, ya almost want to jump in there and Post...WHAT HAPPENED??..... =)

Also, Sully. On the other Site, the one Wake is screwing up. You asked about a 1W LED, those are for FOWLR only, not for Corals. So the guy was killing his corals, now he switched to T-5, which was to much all of a sudden, and he shocked his corals. Now he's gotta turn down his lighting period to 4 hours a day, and up 1 hour a week until he's back to normal, just to acclimate his corals to the new lighting.

Re: blue legged hermit breeding

Lol, yeah reef, that was my first thought about his corals dying. He's probably saving them by switching the lighting up and doesn't even know it. I'll pass along to the OP to adjust his lighting schedule until acclimated. Missed ya over there man. It's definately not the same recently.

CFP, can't wait til you get this set-up to see how things work.
