What Type of Crab is This

An old friend of mine used to have a saltwater tank and several crabs. The crab I always thought was the most interesting was one that would sit on the rocks and waived his arms back and forth constantly fanning the water and ate the particles he caught in his "fans" or "wing" looking things. I have tried to search the internet to find out what type it is, but have not been able to find what it is. Does anyone know what kind of crab this is? I really want one for my tank. Thanks in advance!!
