I'm seriously loving this little tank! I sit on my bed and just stare... It's awesome how simple the set up is, yet how complex and abundant the life that begins to grow inside... I'm fascinated.
That's what is so addicting about saltwater. I'm glad you love it. I think it's a really neat little tank! I also get that tan/light green algae sometimes. I'm not too sure what it is but it never seems to hang around for very long.

Thanks! I do love it, I just wish I wasn't broke right now so I could go buy some more fun stuff for the tank! Haha

He may have molted and you may have found the the old shell they will hide for a day or two until the new shell hardens

I don't know about that. But I know I've pulled a lot of "dead" emerald crabs outs of my tank but I still have emerald crabs. So it's possible.
