I have these 2 types of Hermit Crabs from Hawaii.

Can several different types of hermit crabs go in the same Aquarium, or will the one type of wipe out the other?

A He
rmit crabs have a territory in the aquarium as it protects?

Hermit crabs can good and bad in an aquarium, in my opinion. I used to have quite a few different types in my tank because a variety can provide a great cleanup crew for the reef tank. Just remember, they are natural carnivores, so if you feed your tank infrequently, they will still find food, and you may not be happy with what they start eating. It doesn't matter if they are the same species or not, they will fight each other to the death if they are hungry. They will also eat snails to take over their shells, if hungry as well.
