HAD burgendy algae (moss like), green seaweed.
FS said for 29 gallons to get 3 emerald crabs, so I did.
Algae and seaweed gone in one week.
Now they are hungry so am feeding them algae sheets = crazy!
Should have gone with 1 little guy and let him graze when he wants.

So $5 per crab = great deal for you! :victory:

Just going to say that emerald crabs will eat your fish food too, and don't need algae to survive. I'd personally keep them, they are great scavengers, and will always be there if the algae comes back. I have like 10 of them in a 55. They arent like turbo snails which need quite a bit of algae to live off from.

Just my 2 cents.

Oh and 3 for a 29 gallon is definitely not too many unless you have like 30 other inverts your not mentioning....

Sure do. Would love to sell them to you to help with your tank overgrowth (I am keeping 1 for "maintenance" on my tank).
