Time for a species only tank. Seriously that is one crazy looking crab, never seen one with those arms :eek:. As for reef safe, no clue, but that things looks mean, like it'll rip a fish a new one. How big is it?

What the....!!! I have no idea. I don't even see a crab... I just see two huge creepy legs. Sorry, this is no help at all.

That doesn't even look like a crab.

I would say not to risk keeping it.

It looks awesome! Definitely don't kill it if you decide not to keep it, rehome if possible.

Haven't been here in a while. OP is probably gone now, so this is more for everyone else.

It's an elbow crab. Possibly a bladetooth elbow crab. I don't really know anything about them, so that's all the help I can offer.

He has another thread somewhere and he figured it out.  That thing looks crazy.

Did he keep it? I would totally set up a 5g just for it.

I don't think he ever gave an update.
