Decorator Arrow Crab (Stenorhynchus sp.) Care
The Decorator Arrow Crab, Stenorhynchus sp., comes from the Caribbean Sea and is also known as the Frilly Arrow Crab. Arrow crabs have an arrow-shaped head and body and very long, thin legs. They can grow to about 6″ and are red, and, and brown in color.
Crabs are carnivores and require a diet rich in meaty foods, such as brine shrimp and small pieces of marine fish and shrimp.
They should be kept in an aquarium of at least 20 gallons with plenty of live rock with plenty of hiding places. They are semi-aggressive and may attack some shrimp and small, slow-moving fish.
