Crab ID

I pulled this guy out of my tank today. I didn't put him in there, must have came in on the live rock. I think it's a Gorilla Crab, but I'm not certain. Not taking any chances, he's taking a trip to the beach with my wife today.

Can anyone give a positive ID? It's about the size in between a dime and a quarter.

Looks like it. In the end it doesn't really matter what kind of crab it is - if you don't feed it (directly or indirectly) eventually it will find some alternate food. Usually the kind of food that gets eaten is NOT what you planned as food.
