Can you be more specific on the type of decorator crab? Spider?
No offense but you're aware that's a salty creature correct?

Yes, the spider decorator crab. Like, I know all crabs are opportunistic in nature and will eat whatever they can get their claws on, but are they aggressive or are they more mellowed out like emerald crabs?
I’d figure that I’d try to find a small 1 or 2 inch one to raise in a ten gallon tank with some marine mollies before moving it to a 55 gallon tank later on

People seem to say they are reef safe and likely will only do harm to smaller crabs. Always a risk to corals but in general alright.

That’s good to know. I never used coral anyways, just fish and inverts.
