    I am so sorry for asking this again about another crab. I think I have the Purple pinchers down and I am sure my others are Es, but this little guy/gal is confusing me. I know its personality is a little more aggressive then the rest. It went after one of our larger PP when it was introduced to the tank so we set them on other sides of the tank, but when I checked them the next morning the PP was ripped apart, and I highly suspect this little guy. I am hopefully posting this link correctly-

    Thats an E, and a pretty one at that!

    It can be an alpha crab or it's going after other crabs because it's lacking proteins. I'd suggest giving them a quick dip in some dechlor salt water(to make sure they all smell alike) and then make sure to offer some proteins in their dishes every night. The stinkier the better, frozen krill, eggs, fish, shrimp etc.
