OHIO REEFER,,, "Ron of Triton" here. Your second and third pic's are of a porcelain crab. This type of crab is a filter feeder. If you will look close while it is in your tank, you will see it swinging it's two fore arms back and forth and at the ends of those arms you will see a very fine looking (fan) or fine filter (web). These fine web filters the water as he swings them back and forth to his mouth and removes the phytoplankton and other micro-organisms from the water colum."Ron of Triton" Porcelain Crabs will not harm anything in a reef tank. Excellent crab of all crabs.

No Mantis

Just so you don't panic. I don't see a Mantis in any of your pictures. One of the posts thought he saw one, but I disagree emphatically. Don't worry.

The first pic is some type of pistol shrimp. and a hairy stone crab, Stone crab is baad very bad. Will destroy many good things. The second and third pic's are Porcelain crabs, totaly harmless filteer feeders. Watch them as they pull there arms with fans on the end back and forth to feed off the microrganisms in the water colum. good crabs (Porcelain) will not harm anything in your reef tank,
