Sorry for photo quality. He is not a fan of the light.

He's about 6" long now.

We catch those monsters in our coastal waters as well. Some close to 8 lbs.

He is mostly by himself. There are 2 crabs - both with a body about the size of a silver dollar - in the tank with him.

He really hates light - unless I shine a flashlight into his lair - then he'll position himself at the opening and wait for food.

Seems to be doing well on pices of raw shrimp, salmon and scallops a couple times a week.

Something has been slowly getting rid of the whelk snails - not sure if it's this guy or something else. They were the only critters I really have a dislike for - somehow one of them travelled from this tank, through the sump and up to my other tank and ate our Desera clam.

You know - that is sort of cool that you decided to keep it. Odd looking fella but still heck of cool.
