Ive had a few Pom Poms over the years and they never make it...... but an asshole hitchhiker crab flourishes. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I can't believe mine is still alive. I see him once every couple months and he still has both pom poms as well. My little porcelain crab is gone though. I wanna get another one or two of them.

Update!

 

The crab was not abducted by aliens but did make a fantastic journey........

 

 

saturday evening I did a water change on my 75 gallon and spilled some water out of one of the buckets. I put the towel I dried the floor with in front of the washing machine in the kitchen. Sometime after lights out the crab must have crawled out of the tank and onto the towel. Before I went to bed I threw the towel in the machine to get it off the floor. 

 

After washing and drying the towels today I find this in the bottom of the dryer:

Yeah I was bummed to know I was awake when he escaped. But had no reason to check my laundry for a crab. 🤷🏻‍♀️

 

Gotta figure out if I’m going to take it down or not.

He probably didn't like being evicted in the first place and was coming to "talk" to you.

It has grown over the rock and attached to the wall of the 75 gallon......so I just cut the rock loose and put it in here for now.

My pom pom is also a BAD crab!!

 

I had some of those majanos years ago...I miss them....they were gorgeous!

I had the pom pom formerly known as Shelby.  That...was a BAD crab!  BAD!  Bludgeoning, Assaulting, Destroying.  Poor Shirley the other pom pom crab lol. :unsure:

You just need a Shelby pom pom.  She'll flourish as she kills everything she can! :lol:

I did not!  I probably should get the new tank up and running first (am finally leak testing lol) but can I hit you up in a month or so?
