    This beautiful hermit crab is called Pylopaguropsis keijii (McLaughlin & Haig, 1989). The body is golden color and claw and legs are really bright purple. I got this hermit crab from famous rare fish diver Robert Lower in Hawaii who was passed away with decompression sickness last year. A couple years ago, I asked him to collect some hermit crabs that sit on the acropora corals around Hawaii. He sent me 16 hermit crabs and one of them was Pylopaguropsis keijii. Unfortunately, his big claws were already lost when I received him. It was the first time to see this beautiful Genus Pylopaguropsis. He is somewhere in my ZEOvit tank with Hawaiian Flame Trio and a pair of Multi Color Angelfish that were also from Robert.
