View Full Version : Shovelnose lobster

I have an opportunity to buy one of these for $10. It is 2"-3" in size. I know very little about them and can't seem to find any info on them in relation to keeping them in a home aquarium.

Does anyone know much about these? How big can they get... reef safe etc.

Thanks in advance!

You don't want them, Rageybug. All the reef lobster species will eat anything and everything in a reef tank, including fish. They are the proverbial bull in a china shop.

Okay, thanks for the heads up! I figured it was a bad idea, but like I said, I can't find much info about them. Thanks again.
