Name that invertebrate!


I can't find a picture because I don't know what it is called. Maybe you can help!

It looks like a crab, but it has a weird body shape.
It is a herbivore
It is "rare" in aquariums, but only because it's so ugly.

The aegla and pancora are the same thing. I couldn't find the scientific name the first time I looked it up.

I think it says they don't show much interest in catching shrimp or fish, but it also states they'll eat like most crayfish, so I have a few doubts. Probably need a large tank in order to factor in their slowness compared to that of the shrimps.
