Brown Mithrax Crab

Recommended Posts

I had a pair of brown mithrax crabs come in on some live rock. Early on I killed the smaller of the two thinking it was bad. As I started looking at the other one it resembled a brown slightly hairier version of an emerald crab. It hasn't caused any problems that I know of. The only things I am wondering about include hermits. I put in about five dwarf zebra hermits and they all disappeared within the week. Then lately I saw him under the shell of my one inch Halloween hermit and it was eating broken a broken off claw. I moved the halloween and he is still alive, but he only has one claw. Could that brown mithrax be the culprit? Should I remove him? I tried but he escaped.
