Open window, take tank and toss it out said window, go outside and drive over that thing 237 times back and forth to assure its dead, then throw lighter fluid on it and burn it for about 3 hours. Put it out and you should be good.

I'll buy you a new tank, get that beast out of your house!!
Lol, that really made me chuckle!! Not a fan then?!

I really think it is worth posting this again in the getting started category so we can get more eyes to witness this miracle of saltwater mysteries and my personal nightmare...

This is too bizarre, if Convict is stumped.... then who shall confirm or deny if this is an alien spider or a legit saltwater creature that mimics land-locked spiders except hates air and loves water?!

If that was in my tank, I'd probably burn my house down just to make sure it was dead. Following

I am literally too scared to look at your link!

Is it true? This is a documented species of real super-fast extra-creepy water spiders?
