Frilly Arrow crabs (Podochela spp.) are curious creatures that move about with long spindly legs much like a spider. They are efficient at removing smaller bristle worms, and some flatworm species from the aquarium. These crabs are carnivorous, and if left unfed they may attack small or injured fish for a meal. They do not get along generally with ornamental shrimp, but can be housed with snails and hermit crabs without too much trouble. While they are reef safe in the sense they will not eat coral, they will walk on coral and pluck around it at times to pull out bristle worms and other small creatures living between the coral. They prefer to hang out in ledges and caves in aquariums. 

This species requires UPS Next Day Air or Express Mail and does not qualify for free shipping.
