Just a quick iphone video of Swipes doing her thing. She is just the coolest little crab waving her fan like mouth-parts around all day long. She is a completely peaceful filter feeder and her large claws are only used in territorial disputes with other crabs of the same species, not an issue here since she is going to be the only one I intend to keep. The rate of sieving for planktonic food increases dramatically just after the fish and/or corals have been fed.
