3 AM crab hunt...ugh.

I took a look at my tank at about 3 AM to see what's currently crawling around after lights out when my nightmare came true. I have a rogue crab! The last time I added LR was 5 months ago 8O It's dark colored, large claws, and has VERY hairy grey and white banded legs(sound familiar to anyone?) I think it's in the Xanthid family-definitely not a mithrax. Always something in this hobby to keep you busy...but I did find some "new" critters that aren't evil

Tell me about it. I think I had about a 4month period when all was great with my tank. All I had to do was just sit back and be memorized.
