Would anybody be able to tell us what kind of crab we have? Found him on a live rock shipment at our LFS.

Hard to be sure, perhaps a member of the family Xanthidae,
or a juvenile stone crab, Menippe mercenaria or adina.
Common name: fish killer (!)

if he is a "fish killer" or you just don't want to risk it fix up your sump or refugium(if you have one) so that the crab can't travel back to the main tank and huck him in there. a lot of people keep mantis shrimp in their fuges why not a "fish killer" crab.

my 2 cents
