    I would not do it, they can be pretty bad on a tank. they are hit and miss. like any other crab they are opportunistic feeders. they generally are not considered reef safe

    They seem ok, but will eat other ornimental shrimp and smaller crabs.
    There's nowhere else I'ld rather be... unless, of course, you're buying
