Haha thanks, no problem! I mean... He is long but his mouth isnt very big so i cant see him doing much harm unless he was really pissed or hungery... Maybe someone has tried this. Im more concerned abou the flame hawk though because they have a good reputation for eating inverts :/

Arrow crab has defenses... It'll be fine. Goby wont touch it.

Well that would be great! How about the flame?

And could the arrow attack a small clown?

Congrats for your soon to be newly acquired arrow crab! Fell in love with them before I knew how aggressive they could be.

Should we not get one? How are they with corals, hermits, and snails? Im worried it would become dinner for the flamehawk, monster goby, or the marine betta!

How about coral banded shrimp..how are they?

I don't have one, but read before that when large enough they can pick on or catch slow and small enough fish or inverts (might pick on snails). I'm sure those fish will be fine. Could probably catch a small goby if they were hungry enough. I don't think the engineer goby would eat the arrow crab, but don't have one so wouldn't know. I read numerous times that coral banded shrimp ARE mean. Will pick on fish and I think even corals. It's a gamble b/c there's always different personalities and scenarios.
