I've thought about adding one of these myself, do they get along with your shrimp and lobster? The ones at the lfs are kind of big (2+") and I hesitate to add from reading this about them "When large, it can become aggressive and catch and eat small invertebrates and fish." Lastly what do you feed it?

I dont feed mine nothing they scavange the bottom and keep your rocks clean. They seem to have about a 2-3 year life span. But all three have never bothered each other.

Thanks, I think I'll take a chance Kind of sad for the life span though, I kept a 4ā€¯ blue crab for 4 years in my brackish tank until finally releasing it when I moved.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
