This is mild non-aggressive omnivore scavenger that WILL eat all of the left over food your fish miss, as well as detritus and other waste off the bottom of your aquarium. Although this lobster will eat dead or dying fish as well, it is just too slow to catch healthy fish. Colors can change from bright blue or camouflage to a bluish-brown to hide from predators. Males can get very bright during courting and actaully both sexes can periodically get extremely bright depending on the foods they consume. They have relatively small claws for their size. We can’t express this enough: They will rarely hunt for fish as they are generally too slow to catch them.
These lobsters are easy to keep and care for. You may supplement feed them Algae Wafers if needed.
Size at shipping: about 2+” and up
Stocking Ratio: 1 per 10 gallons, or more if you have plenty of hiding spaces.
