View Full Version : Need an Identification on Stowaway Crab

05-07-2012, 08:14 AM
I bought some corals for my 75g tank and one of star-poly coral was moving slight every night, I decided to pull Star-Poly coral and discovered the stowaway crab hidden, I had to remove it for an identification, So anyone of you know what kind that crab is? is it good or bad crab?

google "red eye reef crab" and you'll get a few hits. The general consensus seems to be that it's not reef safe. Banish to sump or keep in a FO/FOWLR tank.

Many thanks,
I decided to keep "red eyed reef crab" in my 10g refugrium, I could not flush it away or kill it anyhow, That crab earned the survival of the fittest!
