Crab ID

I don't know how helpful this will be because I can't get a picture but was wondering what this crab was. It is in my refugium. It's body is red, red and yellowish rings around his legs, and bulky claws. It looks like he likes to dig up the substrate with his legs and hide under rocks. It might be predatory because I put 2 emerald crabs in my refugium and I have not seen them in a while, and the only other things I have in it are cheato, mangroves, and amphipods.

If this guy is reef safe I would love to put him in my display tank.

and it's body looks like an emerald crab. but his legs aren't hairy like pictures of mithrax crabs I've seen

hard to say. If the claws have scoop looking things on the bottoms of them they like algae. At least thats what JoeT said the other day about the one I brought in to him. I think all crabs have the potential to go after coral and fish and stuff. When in doubt, pull it out.

I would like to see it. dont get rid of it. bring it down to me at NAS.

Here is a good link on crabs:
