So as you know I’ve got the juwel Rio 180 setup , got one blue legged and one red legged hermit who live together fine , got a few empty shells dotted about , so would I be safe to add another red and another blue without starting a fight fest ,

I dont think you can ever guarantee stuff like this, bit i have about 10 hermits in my tank and they are generally fine. Can always get a few fights but not always fatal and i personally find that as long as there is plenty of food for them then they leave each other alone.

I find hermits being stupid and transferring to shells that are too big for them more an issue than fighting
