Hey guys... I have several crabs that I love. Three hitchhiker anenome crabs and two emeralds, I also have 8 of so I got from the liverocks order. They seem to get along well with everyone and do a great job of picking up the left overs... Why are all crabs bad in your book???

Figured I"d try

reefobsessed:
A lot of crabs are not reef safe and are oportunstic feeders meaning they will eat whatever they can get there little claws on. Some have been know to kill fish, other crabs, shrimp, snails, and a lot will eat some corals as well. I bought a really cool looking mushroom a couple weeks bacl, it was in the tank for less than an hour before some little jerk brown hitchhiker I didn't even know was in my tank, found it and drug it under a rock. Some people have pretty good luck with emeralds but IMO crabs cause far more trouble than they are worth. BTW, I also had a large hermit kill a pearlscale butterfly when it was sleeping.
