Good story!! Not to worry you but I remember a guy at my LFS telling me how his son threw in a penny(or maybe a few pennies) in his tank and it killed everything because he couldn't figure out what was wrong. He found the half corroded pennies when he dismantled his entire tank.

An update, the crabs brought the bottle cap back out into the open this evening. I have removed it from the tank.

It is rusting at the points (brown rust) .

I think my crabs are hoping that I will fill it up with meat again.

They were just taking the "crabby bag" back to the bachelor pad for a grubbing good time. It was of no use to them when it was empty. Your phone hasn't rang lately asking for any funny food deliveries has it? " a Ill take some shrimp, few clams...Just leave it on the front lawn please wrapped in that funny looking budweiser foil"
