The red / orange clinging crab is from the same genus as the popular Emerald green crab (Mithraculas sculptas), they're also both very similar in shape and behavior and make good clean up crew in marine aquariums. Mithraculas forceps is usually found in deep red to burnt orange color morphs.
The red clinging crab will eat nuisance hair algae and bubble algae so can be considered very useful. What's more they don't harm marine fish or other marine inverts, they will however move small coral frags if they're not fixed, like most other scavengers this is done in the search for food.
Due to variations in species your item may not be identical to that featured in the image, we do however ensure the species is correct and that the markings and colors are very similar.
