Who has Porcellanid crabs in their reef tank?

Just wondering as I have one in my sump that came with some macro I got from the coast from J&L.

Just wondering as I am thinking of letting it go in my tank but I don't know if that is a good idea. They are filter feeders but are they safe when large/

thank for your input this would be in a 110g tank. just want to make sure of things because once it is in there there is no getting him out.

How about posting a picture of it?

We have a white anemone crab and a blue porcelain crab and they are both harmless little guys. The anemone crab is a little more feisty and will take mysis shrimp with his claws. Sometimes he waves his claws at the fish, pretty comical.

The blue porcelain crab found a spot in the flow that he likes and has literally stayed put for months.
