OH MY GOD, that is so crazy!! I never would have started fish keeping if I had known about under-water spiders!

Does it move around?? Could it be living in an air bubble under your rocks?

I could never sleep in the same house as that thing, however... I think you may have a very rare species here? Call the local wild animal rescue? lol

Ok that's just CREEPY!!! Yuck!! I'm afraid of spiders and watching that thing crawl around like that?! I retracts last statement.

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!!

Is it bad that all these comments now have me so curious about what it is that I'm thinking about leaving them ( yup, about 3 of them) in the tank until. Find and answer as to what they are....well hoping that when I go see he tank this morning there's no surprises....or more of them...
