    Talking Hitchhiker Crab Found!!

    When I got home tonight from work I was excited to see that I had a little crab on my rock eating some algae. It is very tiny at just a little under 1/4" with legs, sort of white/beige with distinct dots on it. I took some pics, anybody knows what it could be ??

    Oh and also, the night before I discovered a tiny feather duster on my rock, good signs of my tank progressing in its cycle along with all the algae!! hehe

    looks like an Emerald but with no color! Maybe a baby! Not sure though!
    :fish3:Piatchie:fish3:

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Piatchie, yeah quite possibly an Emerald...I looked at some pics of crabs, hard to tell since its so tiny and will probably look very different as an adult but hopefully its a good crab, if its not he will go in my fuge hehe..

    Although if he is good, think when I add my 2 Emerald's and Shrimp and Hermits, think they may pick on him or kill him or will he be fine ??

    I'm not sure but I wouldn't think the emeralds would bother him if he is an emerald. You could always keep him elsewhere till he gets a little bigger. If he's an Emerald it shouldn't take long. Mine Doubled in size in no time!
