I'd ditch them both. FWIW, even Mithrax crabs can cause problems ie. eating small fish. There is more info on SW crabs at http://www.wetwebmedia.com/marine/in...swcrabfaqs.htm

i agree with shemp there i have on that is the same as the second pic and so far im trying to find out what it is and i'm leaning toward the stone crab not the florida stone crab but the gulf stone crab more then likely he came on so florida lr and there he be i have on in my sump hate to kill him but he is very distructive i had a good breeding of mollies going on and he ate them all and my thermoter and bubble rod and prefilter so what you going to do he kinda grew on me think of it this way if it is a stone crab grow him big and eat his claws take the left one only so he can grow it back so every 20 to 24 months you got new crab claws to eat
