Fish look great! Soorry, pic of crab too blurry for me. You could try the glass trap- tilt a glass on its side a little in the sand with a bit of food at the bottom. The crab will go in to get the food and glass will be too slippery to get back out, then you can get a better pic for someone to identify it. And if its a bad one, you've already caught it, and maybe the LFS will take it back. If it's not a bad one, you can put it back in.

Thank you so much! This is exactly it... Is it harmful to fish or shrimps? Been reading bout it not being safe for reef but nothing about fish....


Here are some photos... Can you tell what the slimy stuff building up in my tank are? They look like.... Spider lines

In response of the crab. Most would remove because potential harm this crab could cause. I doubt the crab would go after or catch any fish or shrimp unless they are sick/dying. These guys will make a cave in your live rock. I have read of some reefers mentioning these guys going after some corals. I have a Actaeodes tomentosus in my tank. I place a piece of seaweed in his cave once ever day or two. He has been great so far. But like i said before, most reefers would remove the crab.

Thanks username... I caught two crabs so far and tonight before I go to sleep, I discovered another one I have never seen.... Also yesterday late night I was hearing some clicking too... Hope it's not a mantis!!

On a positive note, I got a six line wrasse, a golden head sleeper goby, a salarias blenny and a bicolor dotty back.... Photos to follow soon loving the wrasse and I think the goby is pairing with my cleaner shrimp.... Thinking of getting another 1or 2 cleaner shrimps, loving them....will keep you all posted!
