Porcelain Crab

I got this as a hitchhiker on a mushroom rock.

Can anyone tell me anything about this crab? Good, bad, neutral.

Neutral, as the link indicates they are filterfeeders and while IMO, no crab is completely reef safe, the porcelain crab is probably the closest.

The one in the picture, however does not look like the porcelain crabs I am familiar with.

reefrunner,

Could you put a copy of that picture or that link in the ID forum? I ended up putting it in my 46 gallon with my Fu manchu and Green Leaf Wrasse. It looks like whoever gets to it first will have a decent dinner.

Thanks,

Jake

The Porcelain Crab pictured is a very interesting harmless crab IMO. It would be a shame if one of your fish ate it.
