I look at my aquarium every night with a flashlight to see all the nocturnal critters out and about. I mainly see a bunch of crabs and snails but isopods and weird worms pop out every now and again.

Earlier this week I saw a “cloud” of some invertebrate larvae, I was hoping they were porcelain crab larvae but they looked like regular hermit crab larvae. Still very cool but I wanted to see the porcelain larvae in person.

Well my wish came true and a bunch of porcelain crab larvae were out last night! I haven’t seen any crabs spawn yet but seeing the larvae swim around is more than enough to make me happy lol. Such cool little dudes!
