    Regarding them being 100% reef safe, I've read some posts from people that claim they can be fish killers. No experience here, just passing it along for what it's worth.

    Since I dissed the thing I guess I have to come back and say that is behaving itself nicely now. I saw it on a colony of zoos and leaped off the couch. Only to see it carefully pick the bubble algea off of the the zoos without hurting them. Go Crab.

    That's cool. :)
    Hey Covey I'm curious how your coral 'six-pack' is doing. You should upload photos to the photo gallery.

    I wish I could but my camera takes real crumby close ups. It always auto focus one something it shouldn't. Cleaning the glass doesn't help, lights on lights off nothing works. As far as the 6-pack goes there all still alive. The devils hand isn't growing that good, from what I have heard it is from it being in the tank with my SPS. The toadstool is twice its original size(still small). The sinularia is starting to look real good. It is about 4" inches tall and branching. The most sucessful coral by far is the star polyps which grow like a weed. They are adleast 4x the original size of the frag! Like I said in one of the earlier post the zoos have some bubble algea on them and I think I will have to get some more emerald crabs.
