Leg Hermit
SE hermit crabs algae EATING OUT OF YOUR TANK?

I legged hermit crabs and I'm blue algae are eaten by hermits? If so, How many I need for 55-gallon tank? i cannot find any good info aanywhere to answer this question. if the hermits will not be responsible for the algae then What exactly are good?

They eat algae … but not exclusively. They are opportunistic scavengers. They'll eat anything really. What is more important, is what kind of algae? They do not eat red (cyan) or brown (diatoms) or purple (Coraline), or bubble algae. They eat seaweed hair a little, but only while is short and soft and fluffy. Once it grows long, they tend to ignore it. If you have a sudden outbreak of algae, see what caused it. That is much more efficient than crabs hermits.
