Once you get to know these fascinating and immensely diverse Crustaceans, you’ll marvel that anyone could “write them off” as food! Among the Crabs and Lobsters we find indescribably gorgeous reef-dwellers, “boxers” that employ anemones as “gloves”, mild-mannered Spider Crabs that will feed from the hand, savage predators, and an array of shapes, sizes, and lifestyles that would take several lifetimes to investigate. While many will consume others of their kind and anything else they can catch, others are harmless beauties that will add diversity to your community aquarium…just please be sure to read our species descriptions carefully!
