Am I a Hermit Crab larva?

Am I a Hermit Crab larva?

Postby EasterEggs » Thu Oct 13, 2011 11:02 am

I collect these regularly, what are they?

The tank has 3 "Mini Might" Blue Leg Hermits. They are very small hermits. I assumed the name comes from the size upon buying, not the specie.



How do I embed the YouTube video??

Simply place the youtube video code, the last part of the browser link
Code: Select all

Yes it looks like one. Need a better, wider angle shot.

By wider angle you mean zoom out? I need to figure out how to compress video...took 25 minutes to upload that one. This was my first try "micro videoing" and uploading. Thanks for the instruction on embedding.

How large are your (presumed) hermit larvae?

They were approximately 3 mm. I haven't collected any since this discovery last October since I moved the little turds out of that tank, and haven't collected these hitchhikers since, so I think that determines that they were in fact hermit crab larvae.
