Arrow Crab Compatibility

Im thinking of purchasing an arrow crab for my 90 reef while the fish are out being treated for ick. I want him to get rid of hitchhiker crabs and bristle worms.

Will an arrow crab kill snails? I would assume so.

Will it kill my brittle stars? I hope not.

First...why do you want to get rid of bristleworms? They are benificial detritivors...people actually buy bristleworms to add to their tanks.

As far as the crabs...just pull them out and toss them, or take them back to the LFS.

I have never seen one kill a snail, I would imagine it would have to be very hungry to do it.

Same answer.
