Sally Light Foot Crab

I am thinking of getting another Sally Light Foot crab for my 72 gal reef, I already have 2 cleaner shrimp, 1 sally light foot, and 2 hermit crabs. Does anybody think that adding another sally light foot would be a problem?? Thanks

Bill

I am a recent convert to the think that all crabs must Die!!! or least get out of my tank. Even when I feed them and give them nice things they eat things they are not supposed to. Bad Crabs!!!

Has anyone had trouble keeping Sally crabs in a reef tank? (Did they eat good stuff?)

I have 2 in my 175 reef......i credit them for being the final factor in eradicating hair algae. I have not had any problems with them.

When did you have the algae? I know last year you switched to high K bulbs, I have read of many accounts of a switch to 20kk bulbs erradicating hair algae.
