Red Vs Blue Hermits

Any preference for blur or red
Most importantly is any of them know to be less reefsafe?
Thanks for any input

From what i have read the blue legs are a little more aggressive then the reds. Now i have had both and haven't had any problems. I have blue legs in the tank now.

The blues are more likely to go after your snails for lager shells.

Micro-hermits. Called blue-legs, they look black, and are hardly larger than a house spider. Scarlets are great, a little larger, well-behaved.

Thanks for the replies.
Anyone having problems with crabs munching on some corals like GSP or Zoos. I see them on the rocks cleaning it up but can't tell if they are damaging any polyps....

I have a hitchhiker crab in my QT that will eat zoas. If you see the polyps disappearing, then the crab is probably eating them. If you don't see any damage, then the crab is probably just cleaning the rock.
