Horseshoe Crab

I got one today for my 75G reef, he's about 2-4 inches with tail, But I wonder if my current might be too strong for him, he is just going all over the tank with the current and I am worried about his little claws getting shredded off by the power head wave maker thing. Thoughts and comments below plz and thank you. have a great day btw
-Cody

He tries to burry by the clowns but they keep swifting him away with there tails. Poor lil guy, bet it's hard being the new guy on the block in fish world.

OMG!!! MEEE TOOO
I also applyed there as well, I think they need people that know what there doing, They have good fish and corals and stuff for GREAT prices, Just hate how the people not taking care of them right gives it a bad rep. I got mine for $12, LFS would sell it to me for 25-35.
I also got a carpet from them for 25, LFS-125

Horseshoe crabs almost move none stop. They also get 2 feet long and 1 foot wide. Might have to move eventually. Also they are reef compatible with caustion. just fyi

My buddy got rid of his because it became extremely annoying, all over the tank upside down and digging through everything.
