So i message a fish shop close to me today as i'm looking for CUC, they have hermits but not blue or red legs, when i asked what they were they just sent me a pic... guessing they don't know then  :| i love this Island sometimes!
Can't find them in the only invert book i currently have unpacked so in the interest of research and finding out if they are useful algae munchers/reef helpers i bow to your knowledge. Anyone recognise these?

Not a clue, had a quick google and it looks a little like the ecuadorian hermit crab. If in doubt, don't buy it :)
