    Looks to me like a fiddler crab, with that one huge claw. Don't know crabs that well, though. Aren't fiddlers marine? Or is there a freshwater variety? Maybe Google can enlighten you.

    from what i hear. he was probably trying to get to a land source by climbing up the filter. im not an expert though.

    Yeah, looks like a fiddler crab. A small tank with a place where he can get out of the water. Filtration is minimal, just for circulation so the water doesn't get stagnant. Feed it veggies and little bits of meat ... or fish pellets.
