    :lol: terribly evil. i think by looking at him its a no brainer that he needs to be sumped. just nice to watch coz there isnt anything in the tank at the moment.

    Hey Nadzo,

    Easiest way I guess would be to remove your rock work and grab him. Otherwise, place a plastic bottle with a small piece of food in it partially under a rock, and he will climb in, just ensure the mouth of the bottle is wide enough for it to enter.

    Nice colouration on it though, did it come with liverock? Or, did you catch it?
    Would make it a little easier to ID
