These are anomurans, rather than true crabs, and aren't seen for sale that often. However, they're found in live rock from time to time, especially in aquacultured Florida rock. These are quite unique, as they're filter feeders that use special appendages to capture plankton. They have what appear to be little fans that they sweep through the water over and over, and pass whatever they catch to their mouth. They do have relatively large, flattened claws for their small size too, but these are apparently just for show and aren't anything to be concerned with. They'll eat some fish foods if offered, but they won't bother anyone else. So, they're fine for any aquarium setting. Hermit Crab Care Sheet & Supplies | PetSmart

Description Aquarium for sale. We used it for hermit crabs. Comes with heat lamp, wood tunnel, bowl, and heat pad. Lavergne near Smyrna Every once in a while I come across some fiddler crabs for sale, but these are unsuitable for typical aquariums. The reason is that they normally live in the intertidal zone, where they dig burrows and spend much of their time out of water. The males have a greatly enlarged claw, which they use to attract mates and threaten potential male competitors, and all are omnivores that will eat meaty foods and algae. Because they spend much of their time out of water, these should only be kept in a specially designed aquarium that mimics the intertidal zone with a deep and soft substrate.Arrow crabs are also regularly seen for sale, most commonly Stenorhynchus seticornis, which is another of the most popular species around. At first glance they appear to be some sort of long-legged spider, but they have a distinctive snout, called a rostrum, that projects from the front of their shell. They're carnivores that will eat any sorts of meaty foods including other small invertebrates, especially bristle worms and feather duster worms, and they've been known to go after small sleeping fishes when given the chance, as well. So, they're fine in fish aquariums, if the fishes are big enough to take care of themselves, but again, I'd be wary of putting one in an aquarium with other small invertebrates.These aren't true crabs either, being merostomates, and while you might see small ones for sale from time to time, they probably shouldn't be. These can easily grow to well over a foot in length, and spend most all of their time buried in sediments. They're omnivorous, but eat primarily clams and worms which they find while digging around in the substrate, so in an aquarium they would require a lot of space, a very deep sand bed, and plenty of meaty food. Even juveniles can be harmful in reef aquariums with a deep sand bed, as they'll eventually clear it of any beneficial worms and such. The bottom line is that these really aren't suitable for reef aquariums, or typical non-reef aquariums, either.While I don't recall ever seeing a stone crab for sale, I have seen small shame face/box crabs at shops from time to time. However, like the stone crabs, these will also get big. They also have large claws purpose built for breaking open shells, and can break open large snail shells in something of a can opener fashion. They'll also bury themselves in sediments and stir everything up all the time, and are big enough to bowl over rocks and rearrange things, too. So, these aren't suitable for reef aquariums, either.First discovered living in the abyss of Curacao, the tusk hermit, , is unique in that it belongs to a family of hermit crabs that only use the straight shells of scaphopods to protect their back end. We have the first ever pictures of this crab on display and for sale at an aquarium store anywhere since the cost of collecting this little guy in the neighborhood of around 600 feet deep has earmarked all other specimens so far for public aquarium display.
