I've seen saltwater spiders but they don't look like that! They look more like crabs shaped like spiders. That's creepy! Def wouldn't want to see that everyday!

Interesting. It wouldn't surprise me if it was a spider that just fell into your tank. I live in an old house and have assassin beetles that live in the walls. When it warms up they come out of the woodwork, literally! They fall into the tank all the time, my clowns actually try to eat them even though they are the same size. I simply do my best to try to keep them out of the tank, when I find them in there still alive they can crawl around trying to get out for several hours.
