The Purple Reef Lobster is also known as the Daum’s Reef Lobster. They are a semi-reef safe lobster and are nocturnal. At night they roam around live rock foraging for food and may bother inverts. They do require a cave and can be designed that you can still see the lobster during the day before it comes out at night. The Daum's Reef Lobster will prey on other tank mates if they are unable to scavenge enough food to survive. They should be supplemented sinking shrimp pellets or similar meaty items as well as iodine-rich foods to help ensure proper molting.
