    Hi Guys/Gals,

    Found these two crabs on my live rock. What are they? Should I keep them or get rid of them?

    Thanks
    Gerrit

    Hi Gerrit, You need to get them out. These grow reasonably large and can attack your fish, especially at night. Had a number of these in my system (caught in Durban harbour) and they rapidly became a problem.
