Crab!

I love these left-handed guys I picked up. They kinda look like scarlets, but have purple claws, and orange eyes and antennas.

Looks like a Monster one ! Wow ... how big is this thing ?

Lolz! It's definitely the biggest hermit in my tank, but I think the photo is making it look bigger than it actually is. The shell is probably about 1.5 inches. Those are standard dwarf ceriths for comparison.

Yes I guess the way the pic was taken makes him look that much larger but if those are dwarf Ceriths as you say then I get an idea of his size, big, but not a Monster one :+)

Thanks gabe! You'll be happy to know that all remaining fish are happy and healing now. Plus, I'm starting to see a lot more amphipods which I like.

I was thinking of things to say about this thread.

Nice 'scape. Great corals. Sweet lights.... Then I saw Admiral Ackbar.

Bravo, Sir.

Super DSLR Pic Update 2012.07.27

 

So, a friend (Poidog!) came over this week with his DSLR and really got some amazing shots!

 

To start, here the latest FTS:

FTS20120725A.jpg

I have one update to my equipment. I recently added a Finnex Max-300 Temperature Controller from Premium Aquatics. It was only $20! So, I figured it's worth a shot.

There isn't much substance beyond this point other than a bunch of amazing photos. So, turn off your brain, strap on your candy viewing glasses, and enjoy!

 

Clowns doin' their thing.

I'll post in a month or two if everything is still checking out with the controller. So far, so good.

I took a look at your thread. Looks like you get the same rock I did (+1 for reefcleaners!!! ;) ). Just get yourself a masonry drill bit, some fiberglass rod (not acrylic!), and some rock putty and build yourself a cool structure! Good luck!

Thanks Quantum! That's exactly what I'm going for! I'm actually contemplating on getting rid of my clam because it's cluttering up the sandbed.
