Read a few differing articles about these. My LFS has some, and so does a friend at work. My friend says his isn't aggressive, and just prunes the odd plant now and again whilst sitting on top of the filter. But I've read they destroy planted tanks and are aggressive to long finned and small fish, plus need a bit of "land".

Anybody got any experiences with them? I currently have a plec, guppies & mollies in the tank I'd put one in. Eventually there will be 2 otos in too when I move to a bigger tank.

Red crabs? Do you mean red claw crabs? They aren't really aquatic. Much as with fiddlers, they need access to a small amount of mildly brackish water, but spend most of their time on land. They will die far too young in a standard aquarium.
