    Hi

    I have 3 Decorator Crabs available for free.
    I bought these thinking that they are totally reef safe, but apparently they are not. I had them in my display tank for 5 days and then moved them to the sump. They did not cause any damage to any of my corals, but I'm not going to take chances with them, so if someone else feels up to it come and collect.

    First come first served, no dibs. ​

    Hi,

    I had a decorator crab in my nano reef tank for almost a year with cleaner shrimp, all types of fish and had no problems, it was awesome seeing it propogate and spread my zoas and soft corals

    Never had any issues

    Just my 2c

    There is a spot reserved for decorator crabs to go on exhibit at the Two Oceans aquarium. Donating a crab or two would be awesome as lots of people get to see it.

    The power of the 'dibs' cannot be undermined. So only if there are any spare crabs :)
