Q11201 - FAQ: Which crab can you put in a aquarium that will eat bristle worms? Thanks David Weyrich

Hi David,

Thank you for your inquiry.  Let me start by saying bristleworms can be a valuable part of a good clean up crew in a reef aquarium.  Many people like having them in their tanks.  Having said that if you are looking for a crab that will eat them, Arrow Crabs will go after them.  Some do not consider Arrow Crabs 100% reef safe, but many people do have them in their tanks without any issues.

If there is anything else we can do for you please let us know.
