Thank you Mr Irie Ivan Sir.
Your comment certainly saved a coraL.
On Saturday (after loosing to the bulls) i was staring into my tank,... once again,... easing the pain... swallowing gulps of beer; when i noticed two acro growth tips that looked as though they had been crushed.
I immediately thought that the only fish with the jaw power to do that was the Fox Face. Since then i have been scheming of a way to ditch him and maybe recover some of my expense....Step 1 buy fish trap... bought fish trap ... step two.... too lazy...rather check if any body has id my crabs on MASA
And thats when i read "and eats them"
Acro Specimen removed.... This ugly b......found and dispatched. I tried to take a pic of the damaged tip but came out a little overexposed.
This is the third crab of the same genus that i have found.... with a wake of damage. They are very difficult to see as they only come out to feed at night and hunker low down in the branches during the day.
After my latest episode with a broken lense/uv filter i discovered this black crab feeding on the resulting algae growth. My attitude towards crabs in general has become a lot more accommodating, but i am still nervous that there maybe those that should be cautioned against. Is this one?
