What information I've read says they are reef safe and, from the pics I could find are of them in reef tanks. Here are a few links with pics of them in reefs, and others links with some general info on the crabs.

"Caution should be used when adding this crab to a reef aquarium as the anemones could sting sessile invertebrates and corals." Quoting liveaquaria.com

Generally, from what I've heard, they don't cause problems. However the potential is there. I have not added one to my tank for this reason, it's not worth the risk to the SPS I keep IMO. Maybe if my tank was bigger I would reconsider it.

Could you please post a link to liveaquaria for them? I searched there and couldn't find them listed. I'm curious as to what they have them listed under if not marine inverts/crabs. Thanks.

On allot of sites if you do a search you will find things that aren't listed in the main galleries. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...fm?pcatid=1474
