Silly Sally
i received my sally very healthy. This little guy is awesome as soon as he was in the tank it went right to work digging in my sand looking for wasted food. I always see him out and about showing off to the hermit crabs quite a character this little crab has

Although they look very interesting and are very active, be very careful with these guys because they are great ambush predators. I love my pair of clowns to a few sallys i had in a 55gal. i caught one in action before and saved the fish but tossed the crab in my refuge. Just beware and avoud them when in small tanks or around small fish.

Cool little Crab!
I purchased 2 of these from Reefs2go about 6 months ago and they are still doing great. I had read reviews that these guys hide alot and in some set-ups you would very rarely if ever see them. I have to disagree, i see them more than i see my 4 Emerald Crabs. These guys pop out of the rock work every time i drop food in the tank. Love these guys!
