    Not all crabs are bad. Which ones do you want to get rid of and why?

    That is a tough one.

    I got some crabs with liverock. They seem to be hiding in holes in lr.

    Darkish colour. Looks round in shape. Think its got one big claw. Def came unwanted with lr.

    Sorry cant get a picture. They are hiding always. Bout as big as a R5 coin now.

    I have heard that they catch your fish and eat your corrals?

    Any ideas?

    I have a few species in my tank which are all hitchhikers. I don't have any problems with them, except once I had a swimmer crab which was quite aggressive towards my fish. I removed him...
