"Anyway thanks alot for the information. I have 2 of these guys. Now after hearing they will go after just about anything, I am wondering if I should even keep them? They don't move around hardly at all. Actually the one pictured hasn't moved but once since I got him. The other can't seem to find just the right place. He is staying in same area just moves every other week about an inch or 2. "
This is typical behavior for Condys. They are not overly agressive though and I doubt they are responsible for the missing crab. I have 5 in my 75g FOWLR
. I would caution you though if you are planning on live corals their stinging can be harmful. As long as you direct feed them 1-2 times a week you should have no problem.
As far as lighting condys do not require as intense lighting as other anenome.
Price wise though you should not be paying more than $5-10/each. It sounds like your LFS
mislabled and overcharged you.
