I would use extreme caution. I had an arrow crab that was making meals out of my livestock. Then I got a coral banded shrimp and after a month he did the same. So I can only imagine both together. I'm sure someone will say it's possible, everything is possible, just use caution. If you do it an they start picking on one another remove them. Good luck!

If you are getting ether of those 2 for a particular job. A dotyback fish will do better then the both combined. I have had them all and the fish will cover more of your tank in 30seconds then the other 2 will look over in one day, searching for bad stuff 24/7. The arrow crab is cool thou. Also arrows will eat fetherdusters.

Yeah, arrows will eat anything they can pick apart. Very neat creature though. I was upset when I had to trade him in.

Smaller ones some times. There hit or miss with anything they can get a hold of. One tank may never have a problem the next they'll eat anything.

My arrow crab was seen one day eating a hermit crab. 2 days later eating on a cleaner shrimp. Of course, dunno if they were already dead before he got to them, but I returned him anyway.

If you must have one of'm and have room for both, I'd go with a mated pair of of CBS.

Hear that. My arrow pulled a live hermit out and ate him up. Bad news. I would like a mated par of bandies.
