Hi there,

This was a hitchhiker i got in my tank when i first purchased my LR. He has never cause any problems till today when he killed my Arrow Crab. So I promptly grabbed him out of my tank. He would only come out at night and always hid in the rocks. I am thinking a Harry Stone crab.

Here are some Pics.

My rule of thumb for crabs and I learned the hard way, is if I don't know what it is and it's got big muscular pinchers, it's a no go in my tank. They can seem fine for a while, but they WILL KILL something, usually small helpless sleeping fish.

Thanks for throwing him in the nano.We need to remember that even though they did something we didn't like... we were the jerks that pulled them out of their beloved home and threw them in a closed system. whenever we can save them... even the obnoxous ones... i think we should try.
