    Are the local South African Hermits reef save?
    I want one or two for my sump DSB area. If they are, are there anybody in Pretoria / Centurion willing to part with one or 2?

    Yes I know this must go to the Wanted Forum, but first I need to know the answer. (to the first question):)

    As far as i know they reef safe. Got a couple myself and they dont even give the corals a second glance. I do hear however that they may fight with blue/red legged hermits.

    Some of them tend to be not reef safe.

    Translating part of the French straight to English

    Parmis species that l' one recommends out of aquarium récifal, there is the clibanarius of which most known is it tricolor, pagurists with the particularly effective P. Cadenati in the fight against the algae filamentous and Calcinus with like representative C. elegans and the tibicen

    Sounds good.
    Will you PM me please when you are back
