About a month ago I ordered some live rock, snails, and hermits from Florida.. I got out of the shower and peeked at one of my biocubes... Could not believe it, take a look... Now what should I do? Sorry for poor quality he wasn't performing. Any clue as to species? I'll post more as he allows.

Can't see the pick, not on facebook,

However odds are it might be a brittlestar?

load the picture to a free image hosting site like IMGUR.com or Photobucket, then post it here

Hope you didn't get an Octopus, it will eat everything in your tank or escape and die.

Not exactly. It'll eat crabs it can take one but should ignore fish.

It can escape that's for sure.

Can't see the pic, but octopi and brittle stars are fairly easy to tell apart.
Brittles usually have about 5 legs and a circular disk body. Octopi have a bulb-shaped body and 8 legs, as well as visible eyes.
