Emerald Crab x 30
The Emerald Crab, Mithrax sculptus, are one of the most popular marine crab species for the home aquarium. They thrive in tanks with plenty of live rock and a sandy substrate as the like to graze searching for algae. As voracious algae-eaters, they can be incredibly beneficial members of a cleanup crew. If there is not enough algae or seaweed, they can be supplementally fed with prepared meaty foods. They should, however, be fed regularly to keep them from becoming aggressive towards their tank mates. Emerald Crabs are particularly effective against bubble algae. There is a reason emerald crabs are so popular; they are very easy to care for, require almost no attention, and are effective in in controlling pesky algal blooms hence keeping the tank clean.
NOTE: This product is for thirty (30) Emerald Crabs.
We have an 100 gallon reef tank that has occasional bouts of bubble algae; along with remedying the contributing factors, we use emerald crabs to help eliminate it from the tank - they're a wonderful little army of algae eaters! We nearly always order them online as our LFS and not so LFS don't consistently have them in stock. We ordered from Saltwaterfish and I was so pleased with the little guys; they arrived active and alive, were packaged well and I was THRILLED to find a healthy mix of sizes in the crew. Other online fish stores send out the itty-bittiest crabs, NOT so here - I was pleasantly surprised to find quite a few big and medium guys in the mix. I would definitely recommend and will definitely be back to refresh our little army the next time we're in need.
