    The emerald crabs are excellent algae eaters and scavengers. They are great additions to reef aquariums as they are also know to eat bubble algae in addition to other nuisance algae. As they are quite opportunistic, care must be taken when they are kept with small fish or other small invertebrates. If there insufficient algae in the aquarium for them to consume, be sure to supplement their diet with additional food. Emerald crabs are sensitive to salinity changes, a slow drip-acclimation is required.
