Yea I agree with the others, it could be something as simple as a small hermit crab from your CUC. You may also want to do a check for any new hitchikers in your tank, they can definitely be the culprit sometimes.

Well it`s still been closed for about two weeks now.It wont open back up. I`m assuming that if it was dead it would open up?

Hard to say Mike. If it's not attached to the anything, can you take it out and smell it? You will know in a sec if it's dead or alive.

You was wrong Larry. I knew in half a second. Thought I was going to throw up it was so bad. Definitely was dead.

Sorry about the loss.
Smell is an unmistakable way to tell if an invert is dead or alive.

Sorry for your loss mike. It happens to everyone once or twice.
