Can anyone tell me what this little crab is? He is a hermit and so far seems to be a good tang buddy but i heve noticed a couple hermits that i believe have unwillingly gave up their shell. I am in no rush to expell him quickly.... He is so dang big if i need to hiding is not really an option. I included on pic with him and my kole and my yellow tang for perspective...btw, if anyone needs one of the gorgonian frags in the background let me know they are free.

He's a cool looking little crab but unknown crabs can be a bad thing.

If it was me I'd put him in the fuge.

There was a time when I would have wanted to know the answer to this, but the ringing in my head has changed my priorities.

I had one that I brought up from the beach a few months ago but gave him to Jessica at Petland Alpharetta because he was too big for my tank at the time. He seemed to jump shells alot but he would always take his Little anemone buddies with him. I suppose your crab could have lost his in the right situation.
