    Crab id

    This guy hitchhiked on a piece of rock.

    Friend or foe?

    Disagree with above... looks more like an Xanthid crab, which are generally considered bad. The black tips to the claws are generally a bad sign. Any chance you could snag a clearer photo of the crab? (I wouldn't just jump to flushing it, some people actually want these, but I might try to isolate it if you can catch it)
    Current project: Starting 7g planted tank. Spent 2 years on the "dark side" of the hobby, finally came back for more freshwater action.

    Looks very similar to one which did a number on my Emeperor Angel which was removed and fed to my 18" Queen Trigger (Snack).

    If has rounded pincher, it should be ok but if has sharp/pointed pincher, I would removed if and when possible via crab trap.
