    Emerald Crab.

    Do anyone know if these guys make any noise? Like a clicking noise. It's only thing I have in my QT tank right now except 2 Damsels. (Didn't have the heart to flush them) Oh ya I also have a small blue spinny lobster in there as well. Well I think he's still in there. I never see him. All the same I never seen in the 50 gallon either but he was in there. Anyway about the emerald crab, I was also wondering if he is reef safe. I'm getting ready to put him in my main tank and I figured i'd ask first. Thanks in advance!!!
    Cheers,

    Emeralds are reef safe and do not make the clicking sound. The Pistol Shrimps make the clicking sound which is actually a sonic wave from speed of their clay snapping together. The only other critter that I believe makes a snapping sound is the Mantis Shrimp. I am not familiar with the Blue Spinny Lobster.
    If my wife asks, it was only $20.
