What is the coolest hitchhiker you've gotten?

Second question: did you let it stay in your tank?

A stomatella. A crappy payoff for aiptasia, bristle worms, a predatory whelk, and some invasive breed like crazy miniature snail whose name I can't remember that's been invading my tank.

I kept it, but I think it died.

Coolest thing: Purples brittles stars and fast moving huge amphipods, stomatella snail (very cool!)

Ok things: Strawberry anemones, feather dusters, red bush algae, mini snails, white sponges (ugly...)

not fun things: Aiptasia, bristles worms, dinoflagellates, green bubble algae.

Worst: Digitates hydroids (I got rid of them easyly, but killed a lot of zoans), lot of colonial hydroids (I had to kill all my 20 pounds of Live Rock, they're currently re-cycling... Also had to kill a LOT of zoans and mushs, thoses frags weres infested...).

A crab that is on the endangered species list. atergatis floridus
Yes, I kept him in my sump until I broke the tank down, then gave him to a friend. He's supposedly still in his sump doing fine.
