5 hermet crabs
2 turbo snalls
1 inka

Two words for you - pistol shrimp. See if you have substrate moved arround, they like to do this. If you have 'fresh' moved little piles of sand, you have a pistol shrimp. Don't worry, they are safe, get a shrimp goby to go with him, it will be cool to watch.

Could be a mantis shrimp...keep an eye on your inverts and smaller fish.

Use a flash light with a red lense to look at night. it doesn't bother things too much and you may be able to catch the clicker in action!

Agree with the others, it is probably a pistol or mantis shrimp in your tank. The pistol shrimp is fine but a mantis is dangerous unless it is by itself.

Aren't them the nasty little buggers that can give razor sharp cuts orr remove pinky fingers??!! I dont know if a mantis shrimp is the one that does this, but they had one in aa national geographic magazine that can do just that. I never thought shrimp could be dangerous!!
