Morning all

Anyone have an ID on this crab off KZN coast. I'm not keeping it in my tank (its growing too fast, from a 1cm hitchhiker to a 5cm monster in just 2 months :m85:), he'll probably go to someones sump, I'm just curious what he is.

Thanks for any/all help :m04:

I'm sure that is a 3 spot swimmer crab. Perhaps hasn't got its other 2 spots yet as it's still fairly small for their size they grow to

I think you are spot on there! I had a look at the pictures off of google and the (currently feint) colour patterns, claw shape and even the little paddles on his back legs look the same. Thanks for the fast help!
