hey guys i found this guy while i have been transferring rock to my new tank I have seen him before and i am wondering what he is and if he is bad. I have never had anything die because of him that i know of and the only thing i have not been able to keep in my reef has been sps. I have been keeping clams, lps, softies, inverts, anemones, and other things.


Any ideas?

I just decided that I should proly get him into a container so if anyone says hes bad i can get rid of him... I just tried to catch him and he didnt even put up a fight! LOL he was dead!

+1 I was fooled by a teddy bear crab molt once... I even felt bad for the thing... Found the actual crab two months later munching on my zoas.

+1. Molts look exactly like the crab.
