inverts and convicts?

are crabs and lobsters compatible with convicts or is it best to keep them seperate?

i was thinking about getting a blue lobster or some type of crab to share the tank with my convicts.

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.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
