crab !

Here's where I'm at..
Bought a LR which had a full zoa colony over it, lovely antler style rock full of zoas.
It also had a hungry crab attached to it, after seeing my zoas diminish daly I decided to take LE out and hunt the bugger.
I didn't find him, I ruined my sponge corals (which I didn't know was there), I disrupted the tank and I got stung !

Happy?
NO

Sorry this happened. Sucks you lost your coral and sponge. However, I don't know if you see humor in the way you wrote it, but lol to the ending.

On a different note. I highly suggest the glass on its side trick. I cought a few crabs this way. I put a lead sinker on a piece of shrimp. Put it in the cup and over night I caught two crabs.

Any idea what kind of crab you are dealing with?

Thanks for the idea, might try that one. I've not been able to ID the crab as yet.
LFS told me green eyes and red eyes are the bad guys, alls I know is that I'm getting red eyes from all the hours I'm looking for him
Grrrr

Thanks again
