    ID Crabs Please help

    Hi,
    I'm new to saltwater and have had tank up for 6 months or so.
    I have had several hitchhikers
    The first one we saw when he was no bigger the your little finger nail.
    I named him fuzzy wuzzy.
    He has been a lot of fun to watch.
    He has really grown.
    His body is about the size of a silver dollar plus a couple inches on both sides for legs.
    He looks like a spider.
    What is he and do I need to get him his own tank :}

    with claws like that he may be a concern, he is kinda pretty tho. like a steamed stone crab. if you can get more pics that would help, but otherwise just wait for other peoples input

    Found this guy as I was moving some rock around, any ideas. Preferably quickly, so if he's a nasty one, I still have a general idea where he's at.
    Thanks as always,
    Jason

    I'm on the whiskey diet, I've lost three days so far.

    Two goldfish were in their tank. One says to the other "You man the guns, I'll drive."
