    OK so I don't need an ID. This is Actaeodes tomentosus Guam I just need some more info. Several marine aquarium sites says he eats softies. Do you guys maybe know more? Has anyone had some experience with this little cutie? He came as a hitchkiker on my LR and has been eating fish flakes with my Nassarius snail (that websites say he eats too?)

    Probably as he gets bigger he will start eating softies. I got a little crab as a hitch hiker on a zoa rock. Just dumped him in the refugium

    I can confirm that this gorilla crab is most definitely a sotfie, snails & other fellow inverts chomper. Best to sump the bugger or add him to the refugium/DSB.
