What do you think that may be?
Didn’t get a good look at it, I’m guessing it’s some kind of Xanthid crab.. they are bad news hard to catch and potentially toxic.

Nice job!
Thanks! Only took me 6 months to finally get it together but I’m pleased with the outcome ;)

The crab. Never seen a toxic crab!
I hadn't either.. honestly not exactly sure what it is but from what I was able to see it looks similar to the above pictures. The toxin is supposably similar to puffers.

That's a beaut!

Crazy hitchhiker eh? I think that's the first toxic xanthid I've ever seen hitchhike in.. pretty cool though u gotta admit!
Thank you, it’s so nice to have everything organized and I also labeled all the cords going to the power bars inside cabinet... The crab is pretty cool but I’d like to “ice” it permanently ;)

Nice work on the control board, very pretty crab. ;)
Bad Crab :mad:.. I’m sure it’s responsible for the hole in my scoly since he seems to have taken up residence under it! Good news is it seems that the damage has almost completely healed since yesterday :)

Following along. I am also doing the same project with the 40 breeder. Hope I can learn a thing or two. Cheers!!
Hi Nicholas and welcome to R2R! other than being limited with fish selection I think the 40 breeder dimensions are just about perfect for smaller reef. Any questions please feel free to ask.
