Last of the hitchhikers, 2 new additions

I've had 2 small scooter blennies in QT for a few weeks now, I had decided not to release them until I caught the last of my hitch hiker crabs.

Yesterday I spotted the crab lurking by one of the smaller, outlying rocks. I pulled the rock and then got the crab into a bucket. I pu the crab in my Mantis tank, sometime during the course of the day/night my Mantis had a very large meal, as the crab was about 1/3 -1/2 his size.

I just added the 2 scooters to my display, both are actively scouring the sandbed looking for food.

What kind of crab? I have reef hermit crabs and was hoping to get a blenny...are they not compatible?

It was either a gorilla or rock crab, it had black claws and was predatory. I'm not sure if it would of actually harmed the blennies but it was just something I'd rather not have in there. I just set it as a goal to remove it before I added the blennies.

I have a ton of hermits too, no problem with and the blennies.
