    Hi guys ... i have a hermit from hell ... if i buy another hermit, this one just goes for him, i think i have about 10 empty shells in my tank, and only another small living one ...

    I bought another one today, and guess what, the big one from hell went to the new one instantly ...

    I had a few damsels in the past, and this hermit are like damsels ... pure bullies !

    what can i do ?

    get rid of the bigger one. Give him to someone else or possibly sump him if your sump is big enough, but you have a nano hey? Might not work out that way if so. I try to keep hermits that are all the same size, and quite small at that. Reduces size superiority. But i still have 2 or so empty shells lying around. Deaths happen

    eat him! lol. he sounds quite aggressive, i would say get a bigger one than him or find him another home. But it is just a standard blue legged hermit rite?

    Just don't keep hermits would be my opinion. I personally hate hermits and snails.

    I love my turbo snails, absolute machines. But I think hermit crabs are the pits. Get rid of them asap imho.
