He is a very cool creature, but not recommended for a community aquarium obviously. They can get quite big. This one was over 2' long.

Ik they can get huge. I was misinformed when I acquired him. Hopefully he'll stay relatively small.

If you like lobsters, try a reef lobster. They rarely get bigger than 5" where most varieties of spiny lobsters get over a foot long. And the size of the tank doesn't seem to slow their growth down at all.

When this guy goes I'm not getting any more. They're too territorial. He's not growing alot now. Hopefully hell stay around this size and I can keep him for awhile. Just gonna out him in the 20 for 2-3 weeks when i get a new fish. You think that would work?

That would probable work while he is still small.

Even if I move him to a 20 and let the new fish acclimate? Cuz he's fine with things that were added before him...... So if he gets used to the scape and territories in the 20...... Hm.......... Thoughts?
