    Should I banish my big blue legged hermit to the sump?

    Nope, they will do fine on their own.

    Hi Gaboon - Great selection! Beautiful fan worm there! And the torch is GREAT too - I too have one - mine has grown tremendously.... Regarding the blue-legged hermit - keep a VERY close eye on it.... Don't chuck it until you actually see it doing damage... It would/should still do a decent job keeping your tank clean until such a time!

    Next time you get an urge to ask this question, do it before you buy the coral, there are many beautiful corals out there that need specialist care, so best to find out before you part with the hard earned.;)

    Yeh thanks, they settled in quickly. The hermit has already dislodged the polyps and is eyeing out the torch. Gonna see if I can exchange him at the lfs. Doesn't seem like much of a life banished to the sump.

    It is a great life they have no one to compete with for food or living space. My sump hermits seem quite happy.
