Dunno about the lobster, but the thai crab is pretty cool. Can't keep him in
a planted tank though... He will snip the plants off at the substrate in a
few days (ask me how I know!).
I kept mine with a jewel cichlid and a Synodontis cat. The cichlid would
mess with him once in a while, sometimes damaging or removing a leg. Which
is why I don't have either anymore.
Right after I got the crab, he got out of the tank. I was going nuts trying
to find him, not wanting a dead, smelly, crab on the floor somewhere. Found
him on the patio. He had my 2 cats cornered!! Claws up, covered in cat hair,
the cats were trying to find a way around him. LoL
Nothing like having your pet teach your spouse's pets some humility.

lately i've been seeing some not so common crustaceans showing up lately.
wondering what you know or what your experiences are with these animals:
australian blue lobster: can they be kept with other fish? or are they
thai devil crabs: does anyone know anything about these? they are rather
large, about 4-5" (10-12 cm) in width. peaceful? predatory?
any info appreciated. thanks.
