They filter feed and also eat meaty foods. The reef-safest crabs I've ever kept.

cool, do you think a 3 would be too much for a 20 gallon? It is stocked with 1 turbo snail 10 hermits, and 2 feather dusters.

Not if you made sure they were fed. Like I said, my experience with them has been very good. They were always model citizens. The problem I had was keeping the large emerald crabs from killing them.
