Here is a crab that I had. No telling how long he was in my tank. I left him alone until he started going after fish and my cleaner shrimp. Then he had to come out.
Yuck. Well I'm glad I didn't catch him and put him with my other fish.

What kind of crab is that?

I think it was a gorilla crab. Its on a long skewer (not a tooth pick) and was about the size of a 50 cent piece.

Yea it did suck didnt want to kill him but also didnt want him killing my fish. Also had another cool hitch hiker. I dont know what it was but I lost him when my heater malfunctioned and heated my tank up to 92 degrees. He was a real cute little guy.

Awe. That looks like a sea slug or a sea cucumber. It is cute!!

I hate that there are mean things in aquariums. Like that damsel that is in mine. Blah.
