Is the sally lightfoot crab reef safe?
I've always heard that they are, and I know a couple of people who keep them in reefs without issue.
I've heard controversy, but i'd say they're ok.
I did some online research, and it varies between websites. The most common thing I found was that they are reef safe when they are little, but as they grow, they can attack small fish, anemones and corals.
ANY crab will be on the fence with being reef safe or not. this includes hermits ( which have no problem killing snails for their shells ) even if a crab appears to be doing good, given the chance it will get ahold of what it can when it can. out of all of the crabs if i were to add any it would be a porcelain personally.
