update,

still waiting on payday to see if the deal on the lights go through, eel is in hiding and the corral beauty is starting to swim around the tank now picking at the rocks. she hides when i walk over to get a pic. have one of our sand sifting star hanging out on a rock though. we lost an emerald crab, i can only assume who the culprit is.

They usually require an estabklished tank to survive. They are known to dig under your sand and die there rotting away and sending your parameters off the charts. I also am scared to get one just yet. lol

Are you sure the emerald is dead? Mine just molted I was certain he was dead but I still have 2 emeralds. hehe...took a few days for him to show himself too

Ok, on another thread I said there are no good "Rules of Thumb". But..... A good rule of thumb is to not do anything until two days after you have posted your intentions on this site somewhere. LOL
