As some may know from a previous thread, I may have unleashed the wrath of bubble algae into my tank and was thinking of getting ahead of it and unleashing the wrath of an emerald crab on any bubble algae that pops up. Will these two crabs live peacefully...

    I was told I need a bigger clean up crew, which I know I do. The LFS dude said I should get an emerald crab, or a sally light foot crab. I have been reading that when they get bigger they can get mean. Does anyone else have one and is that true. Should I stay away from them?
