    Now now chaps, it's not the crab's fault that it's in your tank, poor little sod was probably eyeing up some nice looking lady crab when his house suddenly went airborne, 2 months later and nursing jet lag he's in your tank, have a heart and either give it back to the lfs, failing that sump him feed him up and the bbq him.
