I have a red claw crab in my C/SA American cichlid tank. Every fish has tried to eat the crab. Every fish has had a pinch on the snout. They have all learnt the crabs not for eating now so there are no problems.

My crab hangs out in the filter of my tank most of the time anyway, which isn't a point of complaint. He's just a part of my biological filtration . He eats all the crap and craps out far less crap than he eats.
