Arrow Crab, Living

(in stock)


Arrow crabs, sometimes called spider crabs, with their long legs and arrow-shaped bodies, are a great addition to larger, salt-water reef tanks. They are predators, but if properly fed they can co-exist with quick-moving fish and provide control for feather worm and bristle worm populations. They prefer a rocky substrate with hiding places and should not be kept with other crustaceans as they may prove aggressive. Arrow crabs are shipped directly from our collector. Collections are made weekly to ensure that you receive the finest quality materials possible.
