Play Sand is notorious for Silicates and Silicates are notorious for Cyano and Phosphates. I would strongly recommend against the use of Play Sand.
With that said, Blue Legged Hermits, Red Legged Hermits, Scarlet Reef Hermits to name a few, are good Reef Crabs to use.

Yea, thats actually a good price. I've seen it at $9 a lb. Lowest I've seen is $6 a lb if you buy more than 50lbs at one time.
