    Crab/Invert Compatibility

    I have a 30 gallon macroalgae tank, with the following:

    Spider Decorator Crab
    Small, 1 armed Arrow Crab
    5 nassarius snails
    13 blue leg hermits
    1 juvi pink skunk clown

    I'm wanting to add another oddball invert or 2.
    Thinking a pistol shrimp/gobie combo or just another decorator crab if they'd not fight each other.
    The reef & squat lobsters are intriguing, but they look like they're killers. Suggestions?

    Add a Cucumber... They are cool, they run around and eat your sand and the poop it back out clean... well as clean as a sea cucumbers poop could be I guess lol.

    I got a tank full of #3 CC is that too coarse for cucumbers? Nassarius Snails do fine, but it's not the finest stuff.

    What's the fastest moving cucumbers that be ok in about 3" of sand(I can add more too)?

    I'd be worried about the arrow crab eating the sexy shrimp though.
