Default Gold claw Crab ?

Hello all,
I recently purchased a golden claw crab,9really cool little guy), and just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this type or for that matter any type of crab. I have placed him in a 77 gallon tank with other community fish, but was just wondering if he required anything special. Any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Read this and see if it helps you.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

The rule I go by when it comes to crabs, crayfish, frogs, newts, and other specie other than fish is this "if it can eat fish it will so keep it in it's own tank"

I remember as a kid one of my friends parents thought it would be cool to put a fire bellied newt in their fish tank and within a week all they had left in the tank was the newt (darn thing ate everyone else). I have also heard similar accounts with people adding crayfish to their tanks.

Hope this helps,
