Oh geez, here we go again. I just found this critter in the same elegance. Looks a little different than the first one. Wish I could find out what these things are and how to get rid of them. Whatever they are it's making the elegance very uncomfortable. It's only half out and not looking too good. *sigh-sadness* :-(:-(:-(

Do an Google image search on "gall crab". Think you'll find your critter.

@Zero: No... it's not a chiton - it's an isopod.

Yeah that really does look like a crab too.

Thanks again. Looks like that's what it is alright. Thinking about getting rid of the elegance before I have serious problems with the rest of my tank. If it's not already too late that is. What a shame, everything else in my tank is so healthy and I really love this piece.
BTW that isopod is SICK! I think I'd put that in the road and run it over with my truck. lol The mantis shrimp doesn't look like too much fun to play with either.

Chiton's don't extend legs. And they have feeler liike things that come off the side of them, from under they're shell.

I agree. That giant Isopod looks disgusting. Something i would NEVER hold, such as that guy is doing in the picture. Freaks me out just looking at it.
