Woo-Hoo!

My tank has been set up since early May. (Live rock only) I found my first form of life, two feather dusters! (no one else I know would care about this, except my four year old)

Yes, I love seeing new things, wait until you see a brittle starfish crawling up the back of the glass, then you might get a surprise!

RE: Stresco's crab

Stresco: Take caution with that "strange looking crab" I had one piggy back with my rock, it had a slightly rusty orange color and was very shy. For a long time he created no problems. But then fish started to dissapear from my tank. It wasn't until 2 fish and an anenome later that I caught the crab with a clown fish grasped firmly in it's claws dragging it into the LR.

Don't panic! it could be any NUMBER of crabs good or bad. You should just make a good effort to identify that crab before leaving it in your tank for too long. JMO.



I love all the surprise critters on LR. My latest surprise was a patch of what I thought to be some sort of green algae that turned out to be a patch of zoo's about 1 1/2 inches in diameter! they're tiny but they're growing!

I dont have a pic, but he looks a lot like a hairy, reddish orange, spider. His legs are kindof dispropotionate to his body. His body is about the cecumferance of a dime, just thicker, and his legs are about 2 1/2 inches long (maybe smaller). Is this what your fish killer looked like BillyZ? I don't have any fish in my tank smaller than 4", not including the tail, so i doubt if he will be picking on them without a fight

well the color sounds the same but your description of the body is different. The one I had was of normal crab like proportions

If you don't have any small fish or anenomes/corals then perhaps there is nothing to worry about. I'd be interested in finding out what he is though.


(we should probably jump this conversation over to the "Identification" forum rather than hijack this thread. get a good snap-shot of him and post it up there. I'll keep an eye out for it.)
