Looks cuddly and pettable!
Can I put one in the same tank with corys and tiger barbs?

Actually to me, if you discount the blonde hair it looks more like a white tick than a lobster.

You know how freaky those things can be that live in the dark depths of the ocean. I wonder if anyone has touched those hairy strands and found out if they are little poison darts yet.

Very cool looking. Monterey Bay seems to be the place to go for all the happening stuff. I think I oughta move there and get a job.

It does look like a tick. Something about it actually king of bothers me. I don't know if it is the hair or the fact that it looks like a bug. It could even be because it is white. Although, it is amazing to think about all the strange and undiscovered creatures that are still out there to find.
