I went to my LFS this afternoon and saw a tiny tank with a live blue crab in it. I thought it was his lunch or maybe even dinner. I guess some people actually buy them as pets.

I'm not saying anything bad about the question, just curious. My b/f is always saying when my shrimp get big enough he's gonna eat em but in this case you could literally do that. LOL

Also what would you feed a captive lobster like that? I'd have no idea...

You can feed them silversides or pieces of squid.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
those lobsters from the store are from colder temps like off the coast of maine. they will not survive in tropical temps. as said on the first page, you will need a large tank, and a large chiller. that alone will be expensive to run. american lobsters get to be over 2 feet long, and weigh upwards of 20+ pounds.
here's how cold the water they live in is-
