Maybe so, but I still think that they're pretty neat, especially the angler fish one ):
I do suggest they have seashell hats as headdress, but not as a thing part of their body, though.
Also coconut crabs are terrestrial crabs, they only spend time in the water as larvae before moving onto land for the greater part of their life.
I like this idea, would play it since my other choice florans look like females no matter what.
Because people are so awesome and decided to help out with the race I've updated the OP with some new stuff. Check the OP for the new content!

Thanks guys, I might work a little a bit more on this idea if it gets a little more attention.
please do, I think it's awesome!
Why not Zoidberg?
I realize I was beaten to it, but look! Mine has a picture!
I'm not sorry.
What if for armor they would wear fish scales instead of chainmail.
I would love an Egyptian themed race, maybe do dogs like Anubis?
We would all love to play as a crab but the crystal thing is overused. Many other races like the Drale have crystals in their story. I suggest a giant waterless reef with scattered huts or something of the sort, but it's your decision.
But otherwise I love this space-fareing roman crabs thing. 1 like for you!
I really like this one.
A second aquatic race? A good idea!
Watch any documentary about crabs, and you will wonder whether they aren't already a space-faring exosuit biorobot race. They regenerate limbs, they shed their shells, they act very machine-like. Hell, if their arm or leg is hurt, they pluck it out and wait for a new one to grow. Arthropods are probably the closest to what we'll see of an alien organism in our lifetimes. I'd very much welcome a no-nonsense crustacean machine race that is feared by other Starbound races for their brutal efficiency. Wonder would it be possible for Chucklefish or anyone to add a multipedal race with their own armor, equipment, special abilities and animations. So far every race feels like a little more than a mere reskin of one bipedal species. I crave for some serious sci-fi diversity since Master of Orion days.
Love the details you've got here. This is a very unique and interesting design!
Those are Tachidi, Insecta subspecies from generally unloved Master of Orion III (it was radically different compared to first two installments). In my case however, it was my first turn-based space game which I played on and off over several years until I understood it well enough to enjoy it. Its interface, lore, steep learning curve and brutally serious tone, still hold a place in my heart.
So, the theme of these guys is Roman/Greek, then?
I really like this suggestion. A lot of races seem to be trying to occupy the crystal niche as of late, though. They could use some more backstory.
He meant the race
Heh, I dun goofed
I want crab people.
I want them all day.
