    When I bought my tank a couple weeks ago, it came with a Porcelain Crab. The crab sat in one corner of the tank and never moved. Then one day I rearranged the rocks and he vanished. I figured he was dead, but yesterday I pulled all the rocks out and put them into buckets. I found him alive at...

    I have had a decorator crab for about 3 weeks or more now. He is nocturnal and only comes out to feed around 11 pm. I have to wave clam around the tank to draw him out and he'll climb up and grab the food. The last couple nights, I haven't been able to get him to come out. I'm just dangling...

    Just saw my ruby red mithrax crab sit on the top of GSP and guess what??? It chopped off a piece of the coral and was eating it. I have to drive it away from the coral. It has been in the tank for a couple month:angry:s but this is the first time I saw this. So for me it is NOT reef safe...

    Hey guys, so I have a big dead coral skeleton as a center piece in my tank and I found a full grown, I think xanthid, crab that is a hitchhiker and is picking algae off of the inside of the skeleton.

    Well I decided to try a royal gramma on Tuesday. The fished looked to be doing very good at my LFS. I brought the fish home and dripped him for an hour or a little over. I put him in the tank and he went right to the bottom against a rock. I figured he was hiding. after about 10 minutes he was...

    I added a porcelain anemone crab to one of my tanks yesterday with the hopes of it living in one of my mini-maxi carpets. Instead, it's decided it wants to live in the LTA that hosts my maroon clown. The LTA is only maybe 3" across and the clown is about an inch, so both tiny. Well, the crab is...

    I haven't a clue as to what I am doing. I'm so overwhelmed. I was given a percnon gibbesi (sally light foot). I have her and a neon blue goby in a ten gallon for now. Please, what do I do when the tank starts to cycle? I am starting a 20 gallon for them. I want to eventually add a feather...

    Hi, Very new to this. I was given an opae and a percnon gibbesi and a goby for the crab and some more opae for the one shrimp. This new hobby was an accident, but I find it fascinating and always have from the time I was a child. So it was meant to be.

    hey all! New to the site as a poster, but been following for a while. I just put a new zoanthid frag in my nano tank. My emerald, who has been friendly with all the other corals as of yet, wandered over to investigate. He then RIPPED the newly glued frag, carried it off like a football running...

    So the unknown crab that has hitched into my tank about 5 months ago has a problem. I went to feed the tank tonight and I noticed that his belly is solid black. It has never looked like that before. I have no idea what type of crab it is, and I can't find anything online about their bellies...

    Okay, well hi there everybody! My name is Kinley and I've never had a crab before. A friend of mine went to Florida and when she came home she brought a TON with her. Without warning, I had 9 on my doorstep. Three of them have then since died, it's only been a few days. I'm going to the pet...

    So earlier today I put an emerald crab and a brittle star in my tank and they both immediately went under the same rock. Since the the crab will come out momentarily and then make its way back under while the brittle star just waves his arms out from the rock from time to time. At first I...
