Red or Green emerald crabs

Is there a difference ?? Curiousity got the best of me while looking in my tank today. I'm thinking it has to do with region they are collected from ??

I'm really not trying to spam the boards, just curious...

I usually resort to liveaquaria, but I didn't see anything on picking certain colors/regions. I'd like to see a black or white one in person though.

I had a white one a few years back. A friend of mine had a black one. There is not just the green color in the world of mithrax crabs. As far as spamming the boards I thought it was a good question.

My mom has a white one, it demolishes bubble algae. I just learned they came in different colors a week or so ago, very interesting.
