I found a pic of the crab I posted on wetwebmedia and it was listed as a predatory xanthid crab. This crab has been with me for a while and I was happy to let him alone. I used to watch him push his claws down in the sand and come up with nothing. I figured he was fishing but didn't know what for. I finally caught him pulling out a nassarius snail and eat it. He's cool and I'm glad someone can take him but he's got expensive taste.

Thanks for the response. Maybe I'll give the crabs their own little 10 gallon or something.

Wetwebmedia’s pics confirm mine as Xanthid’s.
There are all about the size of a nickel, so if I can get them all out over the next month, I think my fish will be okay.
I guess I’ll try the drinking glass with bait at the bottom trick.

Now only if I knew how many are there. Could be 3…could be 7. 8O
