I'll just add my two cents: I did research on lobsters (lobster genetics and diet) for a summer. They are VERY MESSY, need lots of oxygen in their water, and if it gets too warm (past 60 degrees) they will not do well---> one reason is because warmer water holds less oxygen. We think that is why soft shell disease affects lobsters mostly south of Massachusetts- the water is warmer and whatever the infecting agent is has a better chance at surviving there than in the colder waters of the Northeast.

But a really good and varied diet of spirulina and shrimp and brine can keep them going. They also like herring and krill!

And yeah they will totally eat your fish. They are not exactly the most lovable pets either. They are generally shy. A nice idea though!
