Hi all.

I have a 120 G freshwater tank, my current stock includes 2 discus, 2 angels, 1 bala shark, a tetra, a pleco, and I used to have a frog until today.

Earlier today I got the brain wave to get 2 Panther crabs, well... with 5 mins of them going in, one had a literal death grip on my small frog.

Are my fish in danger? if so, these lil buggers are headed straight back to the store.

Please help,

I would think the name would sujest that they are preditory in nature and if they can get their claws on something meaty they will eat it... I would use a glass in catch them get them out.. everything I have read says they will eat the tank mates and anything that is put in it. They get farly large to for freshwater. I would catch and return to LFS advise of misshap and ask for a return of money as no one advised of the nature of these crabs.
