    Are his pincers sharp or blunt? I've been told this is a good indication to whether the crab could predate other things in your tank.

    Best way to catch hitch hikers i've found was to just pull out the piece of LR that he calls home.

    Oh I see you said G4Y. Not too sure about buying from there (stuff is priced quite expensively!) They wanted like R85 for an astrea snail!

    You need to talk nicely I got those snails @ R50.00

    I like the guys there as they straight about their stock and are willing to keep stock for a week or two, if you not sure.
