A picture would help, but I'm willing to bet that what you've got is a commensal acro crab. If so, they're completely harmless and may be beneficial to your coral.

They eat everything your fish will eat - pellets, flake, and especially anything meaty (mysis, krill, etc.).

Looks like some kind of mithrax to me. Note the scoop shape of the end of its claws. Maybe Leslie will stop by and provide more information.

Megan - Well, there you go. Looks like you've done more research than me on these things. Maybe I'll reconsider a couple for my 90. Also, I missed that you're in Australia - it's the only place...

I don't think it's majano, but it does look like some kind of anemone. How big around is it?

Ugh, never mind. I just found him, dead, being eaten by my pincushion urchin.

Snowflake eel question

I added a small (8") snowflake yesterday. After acclimation, he swam into the rocks and I haven't seen him since.

I sealed the top and all openings bigger than his tiny little head before...

Wet web media recommends that multiples of these fish (which is best for them) be kept in systems 100 gallons or larger. I've been looking into them for my 90 but have decided against it.

Did you ask for a male and female? I've thought about this before (I'm actually looking for a male), but wasn't sure I trusted them to sex the fish.

I'm sure I'm going to regret pursuing this, but why do you doubt that the anemone is bleached? No part of a healthy BTA should be clear. A BTA that is transparent is missing zooxanthallae. The one...
