Little grains of sand

And the littlest hermit:

In a shell about the size of a grain of rice.

And smaller than the food pellet he's running to capture. Ambitious little critter!

  1. Do they breed in your tank or do the babies come in on things you bring back from the ocean? - Margy

    1. They try to breed in my tank, but I'm not sure the babies can make it with the filter going; they're small enough to be caught before they settle and look for a shell. I try to make sure there are always mini shells around, just in case.
      I think some show up among the barnacles I bring in for the snails.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
