The Purple Lobster is a nocturnal species that mainly comes out at night in search of foods. It needs lots of hiding places, thus keeping live rocks and caves are necessary in an aquarium. The Purple Lobster do not get along well with other inhabitants and may injure them, due to its aggressive and territorial behavior. It is advised to be kept only one per tank to avoid any unnecessary aggressive behavior in the tank.
The Purple Lobster is considered a scavenger that likes to sift through the sand for detritus and thus helps in keeping the aquarium aerated. It feeds on small fish, therefore fishes should be kept selectively according to its size. Purple Lobsters are sensitive to copper based medications and extreme nitrate levels. Poor water conditions should be avoided in the tank containing the Purple Lobster.
