The sally lightfoot crab looks similar to a spider and has two pairs of antennae, three body parts and five pairs of legs. The carapace is bright red in color with yellow and orange rings on its appendages. The sally lightfoot is a great ambush predator and is covered with hard covering called as carapace under which its tail and abdomen are hidden. The sally lightfoot crab undergoes molting wherein it sheds off its exoskeleton to replace it with a new one. The sally lightfoot crab thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1. It requires strong water current and corals, rock and sand in which the crab can hide. It is therefore recommended to keep live rocks and corals to bring a real habitat environment in the aquarium. Due to the presence of the flat carapace, it allows the Sally Lightfoot to maneuver into any tight places or in crevices of rocks to escape the predation. It is a scavenging crab that prefers to live on rocks and loves to graze over it. If there is not much to scavenge, the Sally Lightfoot can be given dried seaweed as an additional food. The sally lightfoot crab is easy to maintain.
