The scarlet reef hermit, Paguristes cadenati, is
probably the most colorful of the small hermits found in the Caribbean and is
highly sought after for its algae cleaning abilities.These bright red crabs are most often found along the reef, down
in the cracks of coral heads by day and browsing all over the reef by
night.They are generally considered
reef safe and like most hermit crabs they are scavengers, so not only will they
eat unwanted algae, they will eat left over bits of food that fall to the bottom.
