The Red Leg Hermit Crab, Paguristes sp., are found off the Mexican coast living together in the hundreds. They will spend their time in the home aquarium clinging to rocks and each other scouring for algae and other food. As proficient tank-cleaners, the Red Leg Hermit Crab is an essential member of any cleanup crew and has no real drawback of keeping them in your tank. 
It can be smart to have extra empty shells laying around in case these crabs want to swap for a better home. As peaceful, reef safe, and easy to care for organisms, the Red Leg Hermit Crab is a wise addition to any home aquarium.
