The Blue Spiny Lobster is a peaceful reef inhabitant and become very large and must be housed in a larger tank. They are considered semi-reef safe because when they become large they can be destructive to the reef knocking over rocks and coral. It is good to have plenty of rockwork with crevices and caves when owning a Blue Spiny Lobster. The Blue Spiny Lobster diet consists of meaty foods that they can find on the bottom of an aquarium. They will eat sessile and bottom dwelling animals, and may eat some plant material and algae. They should be supplemented shrimp, mussels, and other meaty foods. This species may also pray on smaller crabs and shrimp or any dead or dying fish.
