    Need help figuring out what this thing is and if it's good or bad. It's been hanging out on that shell, and if it's bad now is the time to get it out of my tank. It's not been doing much just hanging out for the last day.

    Hi, I have had this guy hiding out in my tank for several months. I have not had good luck catching him since hides out way under my live rocks. Sometimes I won't see him for a long time and just when I think he might be dead he comes creeping out again. Any thoughts are appreciated! Carolyn
