Yellow footed hermit crabs make great tank janitors. They're generally peaceful and mix well with other types of crabs. Like most of their close relatives they will feed on algae, meaty foods left other from feeding fish, carcases and detritus. Spare shells should be provided for hermit crabs as they often like to change shells due to growth or perhaps just because they want to try something new, if no spare shells are available it is highly likely that any hermit crab will attack another crab or snail for their shell.
