    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...

    So as some of you may know I finally got my first few corals and yesterday I got some fire and ice zoanthids. My wife made me get a decorator crab, because she thought it was cool several months ago. He didn't care about any of the corals I put in the tank until I added the zoanthids. He...

    Just thought I'd ask the question, but has anyone ever put anything foreign onto a decorator crab? Something not of nature, to see if it might stick? I'm only asking this question because, SOMEHOW a beer bottle cap found it's way into my fish tank in a position which I can't get it out without...

    I just bought a Decorator crab about 4 days ago and it is totally nocturnal. Is there anyway to get them to come out during the day. I mean if he is going to steel my zoas I would at lead like to see them on him.

    I bought a decorator crab about a month ago at Petco and I've noticed a a few things are growing on its back and legs and am wondering what they are. I am new to saltwater tanks so my knowledge on corals is not too great yet. To me it looks like some sort of a soft coral. -Kevin

    as the main lights went out last night, i noticed 4 of my red zoas slowly moving under a ledge. upon closer look i noticed it was a Cyclocoeloma tuberculata. it appeared to be picking at the rock. has anyone have any experience with one in their tank, and is this crab a potential bad hitch hiker?

    Hello Everyone! I'm new to this hobby as well as to NFMAS. I'm looking forward to meeting people at the next meeting, but I thought the best way to introduce myself might be to start a thread for my new tank. My tank is a 14g biocube. I've only made a couple of modifications to it so far...

    OK, some more ID help please. I found these unknown worms and thought they were Bristle Worms. But the consensus from the other thread is they are not not, but probably bad none the less. Possibly Euchnids Sp.?? So any help and removal idea's would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you Joe
