Hitchhiker good or bad? LFS gave me this acro for dirt cheap... As you can tell it's not doing well but I am hoping to get it looking good again or at least frag the parts that can be saved... Anyway just wondered though if anyone could ID the crab pic is terrible but he is in a bad spot.
Hard to tell, but it looks like an acro crab. Used to be thought of as pests, but it was later realized that they are beneficial to acro colonies by removing unwanted pests that could harm them and feed off of the mucus...if I remember it all correctly.
That's in pretty rough shape...half of it looks like it is dead. Is there any tissue in the white area?
Either way, intense lighting and stable parameters are required for acros. If it isn't going well, you might have to frag it up to keep what is alive from continued tissue recession.
