    See if one of these look like your crab.
    I'm thinking maybe belonging to the Mithrax family.What do you think-not considered reef safe according to this site.

    I had one like that and the next time I saw it was two years later and it was eight times the size. Does it have black tipped claws that are sharp? If so good luck keeping snails. One of the last time I saw mine it ran out and grabbed a large turbo snail and drug it in the rocks. After I saw that I was up later everynight until I caught him under the moon lights. If I were you I would get out the 12gauge and don't even hink twice.
