4 Crabs, Sump or Display

In my LR shipment I received 4 kinds of crab, some of the pictures are good some are worthless but I'll link them anyway. Eventually I'd like to go reef but for the near future my tank will be FOWLR.

Whiteish tan, dark claws.

Pinkish tan.

Tan with red flecked back, "hairy" claws.

He doesn't look nearly as red in person.

I have a few of those in my tank now. Good job removing them!!!

I dunno if they are bad or not, but If I were you I'd stick them in the sump just to be safe.

I am going to a reef tank eventually as well. I hear that most crabs are bad for corals.
