    Looks like a Dwarf Yellow Tip Hermit Crab (Clibanarius sp.)
    A local Natal species.
    I have a few of them very well behaved as far as hermits go.

    Is it a local from Natal?
    If yes, does look like yellow tip. In my opinion, they are fine. Do not grow to big either. I got a lot of them.

    That looks like the local yellow banded hermit (Clibanarius virescens).
    Did you collect it yourself?

    Yes I did collect it myself when I went to Shelly Beach, I remember asking someone on the site just before I got it and was also told it was ok I just thought I will double check
