Simple question about crabs...

The crabs (all species of this type) with those filter type feeding arms that come out from their mouths.....are they dangerous? The ones in my tank have the pointy pinchers (arms).

The filter feeding porcelain crabs tend to have larger claws for defense and show, they are reef safe. Can we get a pic of your crab?
