    Red-eyed crab!!!!

    OK, Just got my live rocks yesterday and found some crabs roaming around at night. I have about three of them with red eyes and I probably think they are either eriphia smithi or Eriphia Sebana which I think are both bad. Can someone help me has how I should remove them if they are truly bad!!!!

    Thanks.

    Good idea. I wouldn't want any carnivorous crabs in my tank. If it doesn't go for the shrimp try some Nori. If it's a veggie eater let it stay.

    Here are some pics of the biggest one in there. I also added a picture found on the net of the not so nice Eriphia Sebana...

    I think I have a match...
