The purple reef lobster should have a thick sand bed for burrowing and rocks for hiding. The cave can be designed so that the lobster can be seen during the day, but it usually will spend most of the daylight hours hiding from the light. It prefers to scavenge and hunt at night. The purple reef Lobster is described as peaceful, and it will ignore sleeping and healthy fish within the aquarium. Caution must be taken when incorporating into a reef aquarium, as it may harm small fish and invertebrates. All Reef Lobsters are very territorial and aggressive towards each other, so only one specimen, or a mated pair should be kept per aquarium. It is sensitive to high levels of copper-based medications.
