I have Margarita Crabs...

I'm sure this happens to everybody but I find it particularly funny. My clean up crew consists of Margarita Snails, an assortment of Hermit Crabs and some Peppermint Shrimp. But now I guess you could say we have Margarita Crabs because every once in a while when a snail gets stuck upside down one of our crabs gets a hearty meal.....then he gets a new home..lol..I just noticed yesterday that what used to be snails are now crabs in a snails shell.....isn't that like the wolfe in sheeps clothing.lol!

Isn't nature great? i am torn on the whole "clawless" clean-up crew debate. It would certainly avoid things like this but everytime I look at my tank, those darn crabs are working away. They do a great job cleaning up the ottom of hte tank. I to have lost a snails or two to these little monsters but they sure are helpful.
