I think some more research is good. If you have not done so, try searching under "crab." If you need help, please PM me. C(o_ o)D

looks like a gorilla crab or teddy bear crab to me. is he fuzzy? if so take him back to he lfs for some credit. these things will reak havoc in a nano reef.

 

for the record...

I'm guessing gorilla crab also. I have found several on live rock from Fiji. No good for tanks period.

I have had him in a 3/4 of a gallon pico with zoos and gsp, a snail, and a hermit for 6 months now. He hasn't hurt a thing, sheds regularly, and cruises around at night. I think he just has a bad rap. I love him in his little reef.
