I've heard strawberry crabs (if you are not talking about the hermit crab) are not reef safe, even though liveaquaria lists it as so. The strawberry crab I've read have been reported to attack fish. Also pom pom crabs are rarely seen, but they are very interesting. I have heard that some grow an anemone under a rock, but that I have heard only once. Maybe the Hawaiian ones are different?

Lol I meant pom pom and strawberry. I don't think anything is going in with the mantis.

i had my pom pom lost one of the nems and weeks later, it "found" one even though there's no nem in my tank. my guess is that the nem from the other arm split.

They shouldn't, but in small tanks you never know. Every animal has it's own personality.
