    I have had some healthy Zoas missing lately. Ive been keeping a eye out to see if I can catch what is eating them and today I noticed more missing and the My large (shell about 1 inch long) blue knuckle hermit right next to them. It appeared he was eating something but cant say it was eating the...

    This may not be a very common crab for most reef keepers since this is a none-reef safe animal as far as snails go. But I happen go have one. My petstore got one weeks and weeks ago and I got it and it was one of my favorite choices to make. The only drawback is that now most of my 30 something...

    A few weeks ago I visited Fort Bragg, California and saw these crabs as I was walking around on the rocks of a beach. I contacted Fort Bragg and asked them what kind of crab it could be. They replied, saying it could either be rock crab, sand crab, or dungeness crab. I posted pictures below to...

    Hi everyone, I have had my biocube 29 g for 2 weeks now (with water at 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 15 nitrates, ph at 8.0), and 3 days ago I bought the first inhabitants, 3 small (about .75 inches with shell) red legged hermit crabs, from the first minute they have been going ALL over the place...

    Hey guys, So, I haven't added any live rock to for 5 months, and I noticed a crab that I didn't purchase, poking out the other day. It only comes out at night. He's black, and has sharp, not cup, looking pincers. It is also about the size of a quarter. I'd like to have it ID'd and possibly a...

    What kind of crab is this? The pic info said it was a gorilla, but it looks nothing like them. Any ideas?

    Ok, so I just got my 60 gallon set up and I am trying to put together a small clean up crew that will be functional and tasteful. I do not want to just throw 100 snails and 100 hermit crabs in my tank and call it a day. I have spent the better part of roughly 8 hours on here searching for what...

    Can some one give a complete list of what I would need to care for a red burrowing crab and a blue burrowing crab? I just want to make sure I don't leave anything out. Is their care just like other fiddlers?

    Hi everyone, when I look under google images for this crab, a bright red and yellow and blue crab pops up. Is there 2 different kinds of this crab?

    Are either of these reef safe and how large do they get. I know that it says so on the website, but I did some reading and people say that these aren't reef safe, is this true?

    Two weeks ago I caught 4 of these and brought them home. One without claws died. Other than that they've been great. They all have homes in my live rock.

    I was just reading that fish cant see true red light, and it made me think. I have a pesky crab hitchhiker I'm currently trying to catch, but every time I put a light on him, he scurry's back into his rock crevice. Does the same go for crabs? It would give me quite a bit of an edge for...

    I have spotted a hairy crab that keeps appearing in a rock crevice over the last few nights. I wouldn't be able to grab him, so I'm wondering if there is a way that I can lure him out to catch him or if anyone has an idea or method to catching rogue crabs. I could just attempt to stab him and...

    I came home today and notice the sand disturbed and a "burrow" dug. I found this huge guy. He is about 1 &1/2 inches across on the shell. The only crabs I have added in here are Emerald and red/blue hermits. I believe he may have been sold to me a while ago as a baby Emerald. I have had my...
