    After recent debate, I'm curious where most of us stand on having crabs in reef tanks.

    never tried an emerald though i have been tempted. i fear he would eventually become a meal for my toby or that the toby would make his life miserable....

    I like to keep a small number of various dwarf reef hermits- roughly 0.3 - 0.5 for each 1g water. :D

    I've sworn off all true crabs as most become opportunistic as they mature.

    I think I have one tiny hermit, maybe two. Not really a hermit or crab fan.
