Accidentally got this guy in with a few blue legged hermit crabs I bought a few weeks ago. I've tried to look up what species he is, but no luck. He seems to have vertically striped black and white legs, with horizontal white stripes at the joints. His claws look the same size, though he's so small it's hard to tell. I don't think he's a zebra, unless the juveniles look rather
different from the adults.

zebra hermit?

*edit, i see you ruled that out

Yeah, seems like the closest thing to what he is, but if you zoom in you can see that each of his black stripes is made up of several little vertical black stripes
