    Looks very similar to some local ones I had, never had any issues with them, got no idea on their name though.

    Agree with chops. That's a normal blue eyed hermit. Local yes

    Local for sure. Have one as well which I got from a rock pool. Not bad at all other than knocking the odd coral over.

    Yip local guy.
    As said the only real issue are their size. Up to 30mm. Which means larger shells as for example the yellow tip hermit. They got a tendency to knock loose frags and smaller corals that is not secured over. Other than that, they just cruise all over cleaning up as far as they go.
