    hermit ID

    When I got this crab I thought it was a marshall islands hermit, but discovered I was wrong. It was in my main tank for awhile but picks around the corals too much for my liking. It's in the fuge now, but I have a purple lobster inthere that probably isn't very happy. Any info on this crab would be appriciated.

    most convincing decorator I've ever seen. They actually had a marshall islands hermit at the LFS so I traded it in.

    Fragmented Coral. ie, you want acropora, you can but a piece of it (a frag, as it were) that can be attached to live rock (lr/LR) and will grow into a nice large piece.
