The Saltwater Emerald Crab is a great addition to any aquarium and is reef safe. They eat bubble algae and are very easy to take care of. Ample food needs to be present for them though as they will clean all the bubble algae out of the aquarium, an then be hungry. Supplementing seaweed or chopped meaty food will suffice for them. They are also scavengers and will clean out most organic debris from the aquarium.

Love this big guy
I have three emeralds (1 large and two smaller ones). My large was is the king of his rock. He comes out at feeding time and waves his big claws around. He has a lot of personality.

They aren't kidding, these things are large and a great tank addition. I have some smaller Emeralds and they all do fine together. In fact, I watched one of my smaller one taunt and pinch at one of these large ones and the large one just ignored it and went about its business. Great addition.
