They will snap shut before the crab gets inside the shell. Technically the crabs are the predator and the mussels are the meal, if they get inside the shell.

Yeah I just didn't figure one would get killed and I didn't even have it a week.

I'm sorry, don't get down though. Your not putting things in the tank that aren't compatible. Your doing it right. Your on this forum asking questions and doing your research.

I've lost my share of fish, crabs, shrimp and even a coral. It sucks when you loose something, for sure. especially when It's no fault of your own. Cheer up buddy.

Great price on frags, will they be shipped? I've never had any livestock shipped. I know a lot of people get their coral that way. I lost my pulsating xenia because my alkalinity got too high, reef code B mishap early on. (Learning experience). Just ask whoever your getting it from if it has any guarantee.
