    Hello, I recently purchased a sally lightfoot crab from my LFS thinking it would be a good addition to my CUC. Ill admit it was more of a spur of the moment buy and I did t do my due diligence of research before buying. After adding it to my aquarium I read in one of my books that it will eat...

    Hey everyone, I am new to saltwater and was wondering if anyone could identify this crab for me. It was apparently hiding inside one of my live rocks and I was curious what species it is and if it is reef safe. These were the best pics I could get, hopefully they are sufficient. I believe it...

    I have a few emerald crabs and one red mithrax crab, they have been eating my acans! I have been target feeding them and of coarse they go over and try and get some, but even the next day they are picking at my acans! I can actually see the spots that they are tearing off the skeleton. My...

    I was watching TV last night (LED blues only on, regular room lights off), and suddenly caught a glimpse of a new creature atop a rock in my tank. It was a crab. He was emerging from a hole in my rock, and jutted back in as soon as he saw me. I went full dark, and used a flashlight to try to get...

    What is a good way to rid of diatoms in the sand? I know I can clean the sand out and do a water change but is there something I can get so it doesn't come back? Any snails or crabs that would clean it up so I don't have to buy more sand?

    Some type of crab is eating white stuff off my halimeda plant? Will the crab bother the Halimeda or is he just cleaning it? What is the white stuff he is eating? The crab ia very little and I'm not sure what type it is. I just got my LR almost a week ago. Thanks

    I have been trying to catch a crab using the water bottle trap. All I have caught are hermits, and my orange serpent starfish. When I took the starfish out, he just went limp. I laid him down on the substrate and my peppermint stated to pick at him. So I put him in the sump for now. Any ideas...

    This little guy made it into my tank on a purple and neon green acro, then I didn't see him for about 6 weeks but noticed my birdsnest started rapidly dying/bleaching (which has been flourishing for over a year with nothing changed). I believe he is the cause. Anyone know if he's bad news before...

    I bought some new live rock about 2 weeks ago. Completely cured. I have in the last few days noticed this little guy peeking out of a hole in the rock. Same hole every time. Normally comes out between 10 pm and midnight almost every night. All I have ever seen is 4 little legs and some other...

    Well I've had enough of this Gorilla crab. Today when I got home from work, I checked in on my tank only to find the reminiscent of a gorilla crab shell. The little bugger had Molted since last night. I decided that I can't let him get any bigger in my display tank. I haven't seen him yet...

    Well guys, in just 2 days, I've a few problems thrown in my face. First off, yesterday I noticed my only acro has red bugs on it. What steps should I take to get rid of them? I also just noticed my porcelain crab was dead. It is not a molt. My starfish was eating it, so I took it off and looked...

    Hi there folks, I recently just finished cycling my 100 gal tank, but somehow I've been seeing like 3 gorilla crabs dead on my substrate. I read on the forum how to capture them by using the squid in a bottle trap, can anyone tell me how to do it? or is it as simple as it said? put squid in a...
