My neighbourhood LFS has just started selling panther crabs and I feel tempted to get one of those little critters for my semi-aggressive community tank. The tank in question is a fairly large one that measures 5 by two feet. It houses two red jewel cichlids, a striped Raphael catfish and a small school of Buenos Aires tetras. Assuming that I get a floating turte dock for the crab, would he be able to get along with the existing residents of the tank? Thanks in advance.

Jewels are nasty buggers, your panther crab would most likely end up as a expensive snack.
Thanks, you have a valid point there. I'm planning to keep the crab in an isolation tank where the cichlids won't be able to get at him.
