    Gorilla crab is generic name. i have had a couple in tanks. at first no prob but as they get bigger and you start losing livestock you become less sympathetic and more focussed on crab euthenasia!

    I dont think its wise for the ocean, we dont exactly know where it came from.
    It might have picked up something from my tank from another country,
    releasing it into our waters might not e the smartest thing to do.

    up for adoption, currently in a bottle in tank.
