    I helped my LFS unbox and dips some maricultered mini colonies which offered me the opportunity to collect some acro crabs. Let's see you guy's pics if you also have some.

    I like the fact that the acro crabs do "house cleaning" on their home based acro colony

    Just spotted these two at a LFS. Employee was nice enough to dig them out for me! Ones slightly pink, the other more white. Love watching these guys when it's feeding time.

    If I ever win one of these Live Aquaria gift cards from r2r i'm loading up on these guys. I've always wanted some acro crabs. Nobody local has them, or is willing to save them and sell them. They'd rather kill 'em in dips :/

    My local fish store also just dips the colonies and doesn't bother picking the ctabs out so I made friends with them and volunteered to help them with a coral shipment. That's the only way I could get mine without ordering them. Live Aquaria charges a lot for a single crab in my opinion

    Well they have seen a lot of them and when a shipment of corals come in from overseas the main objective is just to get the coral out of the shipping water, dipped and in the tanks
