I know. If you have a big tank you could get one. What size tank do you have?

i have more than a large enough tank for one, but i got a bamboo shark and a zebra eel...they both love crabs so it might end up being a very expensive meal :P

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
it won't survive in your tank. you will need to feed it mollusks and worms. also, a 150 gallon tank isn't big enough!
one more thing...it's not a crab at all.

Make sure you know the regs before it becomes a very expensive excursion NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife - Scientific Collecting Permits.

This is a great reference for them... HorseshoeCrabFAQs.

It was intended as more of a joke. I don't really agree with taking animals from their natural habitat. They'd have a better life in the wild where they belong. But that's just my opinion. And also a whole nother topic.

And I've heard that before but if its not a crab then what is it considered???
