    Were the back feet spiked or flat paddles?

    If paddles, looks like it, then a swimming crab and a predator, sump him, or I can swop him for a frag :)

    A couple of months ago I took a small crab I found to Dory Pets. They gave the crab to the big clown trigger they had at that stage. Still better than flushing it down the toilet or throwing it out in the garden.

    If you do sump the crab, just remember about it. I know somebody who placed an unwanted crab in his sump after spending hours to catch it. There was a piece of liverock in the sump as well, for housing the crab. Then one day, he wanted to re-scape. And not thinking, or realizing what he is doing, put the rock from the sump back into his display.
