I saw these beautiful sally lightfoot crabs at trilby tropicals today for $13.00. I think its a good price. I have 2 clownfish + a mandarin dragonet + pepermint shrimp + emerald crab + hermits + coral and some snails. Also what are lightfoot crab requirements?

I got three pretty big ones in my tank and they are very aggressive I didn't realize it when I was just putting a big order of stuff together a while back and picked them instead of the emeralds which are very calm imop compared to these ones,

But on the upside that haven't killed any fish that I have personally seen and they are out in the open all day eating off the rocks and I have some turf macro algae that they are always mowing for me so it's trade off I guess but I may trap them one day and get them out and wouldn't pick them again.

They remind me of the time I brought back two bags of huge (striped) hermit crabs from the gulf and they went crazy in my tank I had to do a quick "free" ad.
