Product Description

Product Description

The Slipper Lobster, Scyllarides sp., also known as the Sand Lobster, Spanish Lobster, or Bulldozer Lobster, is a strange-looking marine invertebrate. Its appearance more closely resembles a terrestrial insect than a lobster. It has a flattened head, specialized class, and an orange segmented body. They are best kept singly as they can grow large and become territorial. As they can grow up to 8 inches they need a tank of at least 75 gallons. The Slipper Lobster will eat both plant and meaty foods including live fish or inverts so choose tank mates wisely - they should, however, not exclusively be fed meaty foods. If housing this invert, be sure to keep up with regular water cleanings as quality is very important.
