He has mostly orange legs. His two large claws are brown with an orange outline.

He does an awesome job on my algae!

Can you get a pic from the front? What colour are his eyes? My scarlets have yellow eye stalks, and red front claws -- I've never seen a hermit with red/orange legs and brown claws with an orange outline. Yours appear to have much bigger front claws as well. If you don't get an ID here, try the 'other invertebrates' forum.
