how many crabs

I have a 29 gallon biocube and I was wondering how many crabs I should put in. I have heard many opinions on this one.

It is going to be a tank with fish and coral, so I need some small hermit crabs that will be safe with coral and fish.

Re: how many crabs

Well... depends on how much LR and "food" for them to scavenge. I have 10 in my 14, and around the same in my 20. So it really is up to you. Go to reefcleaners.org for your livestock (snails, crabs, etc) best prices around

Thanks, I am going to go with about 15 or 20 and see what happens. My LFS says that I should put about 30 in (1 per gallon).
