Hi all

Anyway fed the frozen food today and it scuttles 2 legs out sees me trying to see it and hides, so I moved slightly and waited very still, and slowly ou wonders this crab its about 1 and a half inches across, must have hitchicked in, i THINK ITS AN EMERALD CRAB, SO KEEPING AN EYE ON IT

I have a couple of emeralds in my 55 gal and a missing scooter blenny. Watch him very carefully, "Crabs will be Crabs"
