The Decorator Crab, (Pelia sp.), is an interesting aquarium inhabitant that will camouflage itself. Is shipped with a sponge, tunicate or zoanthids attached.
$8.00

A slow moving and somewhat sloth like creature, the Decorator Crab is one of those critters that makes this hobby enjoyable. By attaching sponges, algae and even soft corals to their carapace, they are able to "disappear" in plain sight. They are omnivores, and will scavenge and pick at live rock. They are pretty good hair algae eaters. When frightened or stressed, they will remain motionless, relying on their camouflage to protect them. If you have a lot of expensive zoas, maybe this isn't the guy for you. If you don't mind a small mobile frag, then this  guy is reef safe enough.  Grows to have a 1'' wide or so carapace. Crabs purchased under this product listing will be shipped with zoanthids, sponges or tunicates attached.

This species requires Express Mail and does not qualify for free shipping.
