So what did you find in your liverock?

Just curious about what I might be missing…..

2 1/2 months after putting 100 lbs of gulf rock from liverocks.com in my tank I have found:
2 Brittle stars
2 different kinds of Cukes
About 6 very small hermits
Around 20 or so snails
3 Mantis
20 or so crabs, at least 2 different kinds, maybe 3
Sponges
Glass anemones
2 different kinds of coral
1000's of bivalves ranging from 1/16 inch to 2 1/2 inches
A few feather dusters
Several tube worms
3 baby urchins
Pods galore
And several odd things that I'm not smart enough to name

The one thing I just found was a large crab living in my tank. The rock he is living in I have had in the tank for 3 years now, funny how I just spotted him this week. He has not bothered a thing that I can see and he does not look hairy.....whew
I have decided to leave him for now until I see different.

I have found tons of things on my rock never a Mantis so I feel lucky with that.

I love looking at my tank when the lights have been off for 2 or so hours, always something new.

tons of crabs. and only 2 of them were good. i have a reef tank so i only like the filter feeders. i did get one orange linkia star fish but i have not seen him since he was put in the tank so i dont know if he is just hiding good or if he dies. he was small very small.

The last time I got
1 lrg brittle star
1 sm. brittle star
1 lrg lavender serpant star
2 porcilin crabs
plenty of aps. but the peps took care of it.
at least 1 pistol shrimp
and 1 mantis.

tons of other stuff

and I just found a crab in my tank that looks like a rock? Looks like if he was to pull his pinchers close to him he wouls just look like part of one of the rocks. Don't know if he's good or bad.
