    This might be a shot in the dark but what they heck. Here's two pictures of a crab I didn't even knew I had in my 30G. I could have sworn it was a darker color a few days ago. A chameleon crab? It's about 1 inch in size. Has striped legs as you can kind of make out in the pic. It's always...

    Would anyone be able to ID this crab that I pulled from my tank last night? The pictures aren't great but they are the best I could get. Also you cant see from the picture that it has hairy legs. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I found this small crab "living" on my small sea apple. It's white with black stripes and thin claws, kind of like an arrow crab. I've haven't seen anything like it. Can anyone help me in IDing it and letting me know if it's reef safe or something I should kick out pronto? Thanks!

    Ok, I should have known he was there, as I have found a crab shell while cleaning. Never thought twice about it, until last night. This guy is grayish with small red eyes and white on his mouth, bout an inch wide. I have been looking at pics trying to ID, but nothing looks quite like him. As...

    Does anyone know what this little guy is , and is he reef safe? In the pics he looks tan in color, but he is definately white, black claws and mouthparts, his body is about 1/2"-3/4", and probably about 1-1/2" with his legs spread out, it is definately not a "smooth" crab but not really "hairy"...

    Ok, I am always looking at my tank and I have never noticed this guy until tonight (for obvious reasons). This guy is ridiculously camouflaged! He is sitting on a piece of Cladiella that was ID'd on this forum awhile back (Thanks Robert). I have had zero luck with research on google etc. in...
