    Hi there

    I have a spider crab with a hermit and some fish. For about 2 months it didn't give me problems. Now, last night it started to try and catch my fish, like my dragon wrasse.

    Are spider crabs aggressive?
    What should I do, take it out? or leave it?
    Does anyone have info on spider crabs?

    Thanks

    most crabs are carnivores, and opportunistic feeders, i would put the spider crab in the sump, they will be more beneficial there

    this the guy? Spider Decorator Crab
